Key And Peel

Over the past few weeks I noticed my lithium battery car key was running out of juice.  The car wouldn't click on every time.  Then earlier this week, parked miles away from home, I pushed the button to unlock the door and nothing happened.  I tried a second time, same result.  I waited, tried it yet again, still no result.  (This is madness, according to some misquoters.)

What should I do?  I didn't think I was anywhere close to where I could buy a new battery.  Should I call a tow-truck.  Seems like such a waste.  Then it hit me--I had a key.  I could actually use said key to open the door.

It worked.  My car was frightened though, and started beeping until I put the same key into the ignition, after which it calmed down.

I only bought this car a few years ago, and this was the first time I had a battery-run key, but how quickly we forget.

Soon enough they'll take that option away from you. Access to your house, too.

But surely you've stood in front of a bathroom faucet or towel dispenser waving madly at it, until you realized it was the old fashioned kind with a handle.

(Plus, who hell buys an electronic safe? Everyone who buys any, apparently.)

I have a car from 1999 for which the battery has recently died. Since I also have a car from 1995, I really was not out of the habit of using the key to open the door.

The 1999 car also does not automatically turn off the right/left signal when the car returns to a straight line! This one I am having trouble getting used to - I am now one of those people who drive for miles on the highway signalling a right turn.
