How long does the battery last before it is time to change? Mine is already about 14 months but before that don't know how long they have inserted the battery. Btw anyone here ever faced the problem where your remote is on you but yet the car system is unable to sense it presence especially when you are trying to crank the engine (meaning I cannot turn the ignition and the key symbol is flashing)? Happened to me quite a number of times. Ask the SA to check and they say no problems found.

For me, I drive frequently & use the i-key very often, so the battery only last 12 months for me.

Same problem as you when I crank my engine, so I decide to change the battery. The problem went away after that.

test pen can be bought in sim lim square level 3, those battery shops. Sold at $2 a piece, very useful for a lot of gadgets.

Don't try to use pen-knife or other sharp objects, because it will definitely scratch your car since u are using force to pry open the thing.

The reason for using test pen is because it is made of silicon, and is gentle to surfaces.  :thumbsup:
