    My electronic key for the car has gotten a little odd lately. It seems to
    work about 1 out of 50 tries. I can stand close to the pick up antenna in
    the rear window and the action works a tiny bit better. I noticed the tiny
    red LED stays on quite a bit, but clicking the lock button eventually turns
    the LED off. I checked the battery once and it seems to be fully at 3v.
    Possibly some dust has gotten into the sensor, or the LED being on a lot has
    worn down the battery, which when turned off builds up enough charge again
    to work for just one shot. Any ideas how to isolate the problem? I'll get
    another battery tomorrow, but somehow I think it's in the pocket key device
