Still Trying to Figure This All Out

I’m assuming the ladder.
A couple of quick tests:
  • A number of times my battery was still good but my fob went brain dead. Took out the battery and after a few seconds replaced it and all was well. This went on for about 6 months and the SC finally decided to replace both fobs as it repeated about 3 times
  • If you can wrangle a voltmeter you can test to see if the battery still puts out 3V
