The key fobs were dead when I got the car so I replaced the rechargeable batteries. All was well for a couple of weeks but they died again. I know the batteries were in good condition and I soldered them in myself. I have replaced them again and the same has happened, as expected. I regularly do a five hour drive and occasionally the car will lock from the remote when I arrive but that's it, a one time shot.
Has anyone had an issue with the charging system in the ignition slot? A visual inspection of the fob circuit boards doesn't show up any damage but that's not to say there's none. Loathe to spend a lot on new fobs only for the same to happen.
