Folks, it's time to replace the CR-1632 battery in your key fobs.

Hah, you're a month late!

This is definitely important preventative maintenance as it can leave you stranded, unable to drive your car. And that pesky CR-1632 is not the easiest to find.

That's what I bought when my wife's key fob was dead as a doornail. Strangely, her key for her 1 year old e-Golf also died around the same time.

FYI you can still drive the car with a dead battery key fob.

fusiondynamics, how is that accomplished? Granted, I've never given it effort once I realized the battery was dead. Just jumped in the ICE car.

For reference, the CR-1632 can be found at Radio Shack (if you even still have one around). Don't bother with Target or Home Depot.

I also checked CVS, Orchard Supply and Walgreens and didn't find the CR-1632 battery.
