Picked up my 08 this summer and have had no issues to date. This weekend while on vacation my key started acting like the battery was dying. I pulled it apart and added a new battery making sure the polarity was correct. Now it does nothing. Tried different battery, cleaned the two small contacts, nothing.

The problem is if you lock the door with the button then open it with the key, the horn goes off. You have to use the remote to unlock the door.

Ideas? I haven't done anything mean to it. (using it as a can opener, taking it swimming, ect)

I didn't get the manuals with this car so please don't flame me if its something simple in the book.

Thanks

Heath

OK... fixed it..

What are the chances of buying 2 batteries that are both dead.

Pretty good with my luck apparently.

New battery installed and all good.


some days............:mad:

Good to know that's all it was, considering the other possibilities :)

Sounds like my luck a lot of the time. Maybe it's Murphy's law?
