    Key FOB

    Hey guys, anyone know why my key FOB only works when I'm real close (10 feet) to the car. The battery is brand new, and it was doing it before the battery install also.

    If it works at all, it doesn't need reprogramming. Maybe just weak and needs to be replaced. If a new battery didn't help...
