    Earlier style is different (easier), but has a procedure associated with it to get rid of the warning. I'll try to do a write up next time I change one (which wont be long, as mine eats batteries!)

    Speaking of key fobs, mine went through the washer yesterday.
    So I took it apart and dried it with a hairdryer and it works perfectly!

    Wow, I thought I liked things clean having a little touch of CDO myself, putting it though a wash may be a bit much though, unsure that'll catch on
