I'm personally convinced that this common problem is due to minimalist soldering of the battery contacts. And is easily remedied by applying extra solder/reheating the contacts.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Could be right. Sometime I'll put my fluke across the board-bat contacts & check the resistance.

Yeah, I had the same issue after dropping my fob. A little extra solder and all is good again...

Tonight I finally said "Unkle" & resoldered both fob's batt contacts. We'll see if that resolves it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

So far, resoldering appears to have solved it.
