Her fob works fine with a battery, why would the car not recognize it when it is dead? I tried pointing it every which way and taking the electronic guts out and using those without the case...nothing. With mine the car chimes immediately, is hers not fully programmed to the car, or is there some setting or something, or does only the "primary" key fob work dead, or is the fob just bad?
If you've exposed the "guts" of the fob and still no joy, I'd say something about it is "bad".
I also use the door buttons to lock/unlock my Leaf, which has resulted in a long
time between battery replacements (I think I've replaced 1 in 6+ years).
