Curious if anyone else as experience a rapid depletion in Key Fob Battery life?
I have the two Key Fobs, I used the primary Key fob for a couple months (I've had my X since early Jan) until the battery died. So I started using my secondary Fob. My service Tech asked if I was storing my Fob inside the vehicle. I said no, I explained I hang the Key Fob inside the house on the hook next to the garage door. He asked if the hook was within range of the Fob's Bluetooth signal - which I said yeah probably. He told me the fob battery was draining so quickly because it was in constant communication with the X. He told me to move it further away. I thought that was inconvenient, but I started taking the Key Fob up the stairs a good distance from the X. Recently over the weekend while on a road trip to Wisconsin, the warning light came on - "Key Battery Needs Replacing".
Just curious if anyone else has noticed this?
