Hi, my name is ***** ***** you cycled the key 8 times, do the locks cycle once?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no, twice.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
and after it cycles, did you push the lock button and then turn the key off, and the locks cycle again?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the lock button on the fob? yes, the locks cycled when I turned the key off.

ok, did the fob work before you replaced the battery? did you replace it because it was not working?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was working, but not well so I suspected the battery. It does nothing at all now, and I replaced the battery twice, to be sure the new one was good.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
then you have a bad fob, is it the only one you have?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yup. I'll take it to the dealer.
Thanks for your time, Tim.JKV
