Keys ?

My 2003 156 has two black (two button) flipout keys with the 3 code on them. Both keys work fine, but, one key flattens its battery in a few weeks. Put a new battery in it and it works well again. Anybody else have this problem?

a very dirty car

It's broken. One of the sub-miniature components is breaking down and is allowing charge to trickle through. Finding the exact culprit is just not economically viable and you either need a new circuit board (or one from a second hand key) or just keep it as an emergency spare and put the battery in when you have to.

Chris - I think it was you who I sent my key to. Although it couldnt be repaired thanks for the advice and refund. Sorry to hijack the thread but hope to give some buyer confidence if OP needs repairs!
