Customer Question
I misplaced a set...

I misplaced a set of keys for my 2017 chevy Malibu. I am using my spare set.

Mechanic's Assistant: The Expert will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Expert can help you best.

Is it possible for you to see where I may have lost or dropped them. I says on my car that it needs a battery replacement.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Expert should know?

I lost them from work to home. I used the key to start my car when leaving work. My home is just a few buildings from where I work. So the distance is very very short.

I drove home
Chevy Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 7 months ago

reason i m asking on the battery replacement is , if the lost keys are inside the car or close to it ,it will pick up the weak battery signal from it ?

unless it is indicating that for the spare ones

go to radio shack or wall mart and replace battery in key fob and sees if it still says this message ?

you drove him with spare ?
