2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
Sorry about giving out wrong battery type. Somehow I either made a type-o or my mind was blanked-out while I was typing, the old-age symptom.Well that explains why none of the watch stores I went had a 3025 battery and they all had the 2025.
Maybe my battery was old but it appears to have been used up at six months. I still have to put in a new one to confirm that's the problem. Tomorrow.
Nevertheless the Panasonic CR2025 battery in our key fobs should last 2 years after the CX-5 came out of factory including the time of shipping and sitting in the dealer’s lot. And there’re signs when your battery has become weaker, such as a low-battery warning message displayed in instrument cluster, or the tiny red LED indicator on key fob is really dim when you press the buttons. IMO either you have a defective battery, or less likely a defective key fob.
