Fob battery...tip of the day.

Power Failure happens about every two years. After refueling today, my vrod panic signals activated and engine wouldn't start. So I calmly cracked open the FOB compartment, removed the battery & quickly reinserted. Ignition on and started. ~so.... I'll stop @ the grocery store and replace the ENERGIZER battery #CR2032 stat.

Or you can program in some 5 diget number then spend 2 hours on trying to remember how to input it.

All three of my vrods have battery life of 5 to 7 years. FOB battery lasts 2 years max. All I need is a perimeter alarm for vehicles in reverse.
