Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** is a red LED towards the front part of the key that will blink when you press one of the buttons on the remote. If the LED is blinking it indicates that your batteries are good. The batteries in the key are only for the remote. They do not have any effect on the key turning in the ignition. If you are having trouble turning the key the problem will either be the key itself or the electronic ignition switch.Let me know if you have any questions. Please remember to rate my service in order for the website to credit me for taking your question.Marty
