Having a remote transmitter makes your life easier. But there are few things you have to watch out for because the key fob might malfunction at times. It is always a good idea to have extra battery you can easily reach in the event that the battery in the key fob dies. Another good idea is to have a least two transmitters programmed just in case one of them ceases to work. It might also be smart to have a set of keys attached to your key fob. After all, it’s up to you to decide what works best for you. Now that you have your transmitter set up, it’s about time to get your vehicle ready for the winter.
