Key fob battery

Post by Greg partridge » Mon, 04 Jul 2016, 19:47

Both of my key fobs are not registering by my LEAF. I Figure it is just a flat battery in both fobs, but I can't see any way of replacing the battery. Has anyone replaced theirs before and can advise me how it's done.

So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

How to change it is also in the owner manual. However there is usually a reminder on the dashboard for a while letting you know the key fob battery is getting low, so a sudden demise without that may mean a dead key fob.

I did briefly read yesterday that you can still use them when the batt is flat.
Something about pressing the leaf logo or something for a few secs.
Not too sure since I never played with them.

But both going at once does sound suss as Bryce mentioned.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
