2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Key Fob Battery Replaced
June 10, 2015
Our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI was persistently informing us that it needed a new key fob battery, so I figured I'd stop by Santa Monica Volkswagen and hope for a quick resolution. I was in luck. The parts department located the appropriate battery promptly, and one of the service managers installed it on the spot. Presto change-o.
In case you're wondering, yes, key fob battery replacements are covered under VW's factory warranty. But the battery only cost nine bucks anyway, so this is one potential issue that out-of-warranty GTI owners needn't lose sleep over.
