Hi Brian, I have located the 2 batteries. If 1 is faulty, does it need replacing rather than recharging?
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Hi there
Ok if the battery is discharged it will need replacing as it gets charged with the vehicle running
On most cases customers book there car in for the fob not working and most people assume the fob is faulty this isn't the case on most vehicles where by the battery voltage is poor (doesn't impact starting etc ) and the remote locking seems to be one of the first to go down
