Lucky it didn't burn up the expensive fob.
“I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.”You just confirmed the fact that you are a fallible human like the rest of us. It's a mighty big club.
Thank You, and congratulations on the cheap fix.
Next time, I'll mention that it happened to 3 different posters.OK, time to eat crow. Sometimes you see what you want to see and not what you should.
I did, in fact, put the battery in backwards. I guess I’ve seen so many other devices with the positive side up that my brain transplanted that image.
I had a problem with coin batteries once and discovered I had used a 2016 cell instead of a 2032 cell. I have equipment that uses both types, and had grabbed the wrong type from my drawer of spares.So I don't mean to offend, but there have been 2 other posters with key fob problems who later realized they inserted the battery the wrong way. It may be worth double checking the battery orientation.
