I'm stunned

My Stilo just hit with this massage:
"Low battery remote control"
I guess it knows everything for everything...
Anybody seen this massage?

Re: I'm stunned

Yep had it happen twice now on both remotes, quick easy job and cheap. I went into pound strechers and got a sheet of watch batteries and used them total cost 4.99.
This is one of the NICE features that work well on my car lol.

lol this is an interesting one, i got this the day i picked the car up. As soon as i got in it. The dealer said that its an easy job just replace with similair watch or camera battery.
But forgot totaly what with getting a new toy and it did not flash up again until last weekend, but it was after i used the remote while a good 40 ft away. So i experimented a bit and found that opening the car with remote from anywhere within 10ft and no warning.
Then spent 40 min (i know sad) trying at different distances and managed to get the warning only once more after using remote at its furthest range.
I think it measures the remote signal strength as theres no way it can tell the actual battery charge, so it must go on how strong the incoming remote signal is, if its below a certain threshold then it flashes up the warning for you when you put key in ignition.
So your remote battery might be fine, just that you used it at its max range or there was an obstruction eg.another car in between you and yours when you used it.
Not 100%, on this but it makes sense in my head, if your getting a warning all the time and your standing right next to the car when you use remote then its a good bet the battery is shagged

It was when i pulled out behind Chrissy who has an m reg non turbo'd diesel astra. slow as crap (especially running on 2 cylinders)

he pulled out i followed, expected him to speed up, he didnt, lorry behind nearly up my ass at this point, spot a chance, go for it, leave him like he was standing still with the lorry up his bakside

Re: I'm stunned

Never seen the low battery remote control message... but tend to keep a spare at home (CR2032 about 1.97 from Tescos)

My latest warning post Fiat Service a fortnight ago is 'High Oil Level'
