Just bought the car with a blown motor so I will leave this one as it is with the blown motor.. just from the walk around I bought myself another Nightmare
yyyeah... the FOB... (remote). I was and remain, not especially impressed with mine. I get more than 10 feet but not a lot, up to 30 if it's a clear shot, but god help you if there's anything at all blocking it, yep, now 10 ft or less.
BUT worth noting, just for grins I put a new battery in one of my 2 and I've been making a point to compare. The one with the new battery is noticably stronger. No question. If your replacement came with a battery already in it, it could be easially two or more years old off-the-shelf. For the REAL story, (ability) put a new battery in it.
