Bought car used. The FOBs for my 2011 SRX burn through

Customer Question

Bought car used. The FOBs for my 2011 SRX burn through batteries at the rate of 1 battery every 2 to 4 weeks. Replaced batteries several times now so I don't think it's the battery. Any ideas what this might be or what I can do to troubleshoot this further?

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

First, I need to know if you are using name brand batteries or the least expensive off brand available.

Second, I need the last 8 of the vin to check for any related service bulletins or known issues
