  • There is no longer an LED indicator light.
  • Push Button Start doesn’t work.
  • Smart Access doesn’t work.
  • Your key fob no longer has “the range.”

How to Preserve Your Lexus Key Fob Battery Life

There are several ways you can preserve the life of your Lexus key fob battery. One of the easiest is to be careful about keeping your key fob at least three feet away from electronics that produce magnetic fields, like laptops, cell phones, table lamps, and battery chargers.

You can also activate battery saving mode by holding down the lock button, then pressing the unlock button twice. The indicator will flash four times when you’re in battery saving mode. Press any button on the fob to activate Smart Access and Push Button Start.
