My 2016 pilot key fob battery goes dead after 2 weeks. I have ordered new batteries of a different brand and hope that is the problem. Looking for any advice as to the cause.
I replaced the battery with a quality lithium and so far all is OK. I wonder if keeping my remote in the same pocket as my cell phone could be an issue.Below are wording from the manual:
Communication between the smart entry remote and the vehicle consumes the smart entry remote’s battery.
Battery life is about two years, but this varies depending on regularity of use.
The battery is consumed whenever the smart entry remote is receiving strong radio waves. Avoid placing it near electrical appliances such as televisions and personal computers.
