How do I know when the electronic key battery is dying?

The electronic key battery normally lasts one to two years, at which point it will likely die and need to be replaced. To give you a warning of this, your vehicle will sound an alarm in the cabin when the engine is turned off, and the electronic key battery is dying. When this happens, it is time to replace the battery.
