Second opinion] Hi Jay, Back...
Second opinion] Hi Jay, Back in February I was asking about why my FBO's battery was not lasting but a few weeks. I have been through at least 5 sets of batteries since then and i continue to have the issue. I don't know what to do.. I wanted to ask you of perhaps i can be the proximity sensor not disengaging and continue to send signal to the remote? I'm swinging here in the dark can you do some research to help me? Thanks
