How do I prevent damage to my key?
Whether you have an electronic key or an integrated mechanical key and remote, you need to take care of it. These are electronic devices and a number of different things can cause damage. Here’s what you need to know:
Don’t expose your key to high temps (don’t leave it sitting in direct sunlight, for instance).
Don’t expose your key to jolts (don’t drop it if at all possible).
Don’t expose your key to electric shocks.
Don’t get your key wet (wipe off any moisture immediately, but never submerge the key).
Don’t put your key near a strong magnetic field.
Don’t take the key apart.
