Low Keyless Remote Signal Strength

The vehicle transmits radio waves to locate the keyless remote to start the engine and lock and unlock all the doors, hatch, and the fuel fill door.

In the following cases, starting the engine and locking/unlocking the doors, hatch, and fuel fill door may be inhibited or operation may be unstable:

  • Strong radio waves are being transmitted by nearby equipment.
  • You are carrying the keyless remote together with telecommunications equipment, laptop computers, cell phones, or wireless devices.
  • A metallic object is touching or covering the keyless remote

Communication between the keyless remote and the vehicle consumes the keyless remote’s battery. Battery life is about two years, but this varies depending on regularity of use.

The battery is consumed whenever the keyless remote is receiving strong radio waves. Avoid placing it near electrical appliances such as televisions and personal computers.
