Battery in keyfob

Hi everybody and happy holidays!
I got my 2013 JKU in Jan. and noticed the remote keyfob seems to be loosing alittle steam. Like a weak signal. Anyone else have this happen. And can you change the battery?

In the owners manual it tells you what batt and how to change. Really simple.

Mine takes a CR2032 battery. Do double check your manual for battery number. Easy to replace. Battery can be had at Radio Shack and elsewhere. See your manual for instr. on battery removal/change.

I have noticed this too on my 2013 key fob. I have not changed the battery yet though. There is a notch in the plastic near where the metal key sticks out. You can use a small screw driver or a coin to pop the cover off to get to the battery.

Noticed the same thing today on my '13. Maybe a batch of weak batteries.
