The battery in the key fob (that you use to lock/unlock the doors) is weak, and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Whaat does the key fob

Your remote for your car needs a new battery - take it to a Watch shop or mass merchandiser ( like Walgreens, Kmart or Walmart to name a few ) and they can replace your battery. Don't wait, as your remote will stop working very soon and you may not be able to turn off your alarm, although most alarmed vehicles can shut off the alarm by unlocking the door with the key. The remote is called a key fob.

SOURCE: battery low on key fob

There are 2 or 3 ways to approach this. 1, the owners manual may tell you, the dealer can tell you (and change it), you can open it up and take it out and read the size on the battery. They are readily available. Be careful not to touch the new battery with your fingers (use tissue or gloves) as the oil on your fingers will cause it not to work or shorten its life.

If it isnt something as simple as a Flat or Low Car Battery it could be the key fob battery.

Sounds as if the imoboliser unit is playing up because of a battery fault..
Check the battery is not low in your key fob.

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Key battery low message


Look around the FOB, it should have a small slit that you can pry the top cover off to access the battery. Be careful to not scratch or break it, the plastic is fragile.
