Oh, I have a stupid question!

How do you use the physical backup key when keyless isn't working? The keyhole is covered so do you just pry off the cover and expose the keyhole behind it?

Didn't find anything in the manual about it.

Also start keeping a spare battery. These key fobs are notorious for draining the battery fast.

Wrong.

You don't pry off that cover, there's no conventional lock cylinder under there. You merely hold the key fob up close to that cover, and you'll be able to start the car. The RFID chip does not require battery power to communicate, but its range is very short when your fob battery is dead.

I believe he's referring to the door handle, not ignition. But... I think the original inquiry was is in regard to the ignition. Break down in communication.

Yes thanks for the clarification, I was referring to the door handle itself, that said I have a strip down S so no Kessy or anything :-)
