Slow Response When Opening Locked Door From Outside

Recommended Posts

Seems that it is getting more often that my locked car door (any of the 4 doors) does not open immediately when I pull on the handle from the outside with my key fob in my pocket. It used to be that as soon as I touched the door handle to pull on it, it would "beep beep" immediately and I did not have to pause. It would be as though the car wasn't locked at all and all I had to do was reach for the door handle and open it in one smooth continuous motion. But these days, the "beep beep" tends to come on a few seconds after I touch and pull on the door handle. Anyone knows why?

Mine was beginning to do that after a little over a year. I changed the battery in the fob and the problem went away. You may need to do the same.

Battery in the fob. My mechanic told me that Lexus specifies to replace the battery in the fob every 10k miles whether the customer requests it or not as part of the bundled 10k maintenance package to avoid dealing with complaints about this issue.

Yeah replace your battery. I was stranded over the weekend in a "new" used 2009 because the dealer didn't replace the batteries in the fobs when he sold us the car. Not a good way to get to know your "new" Lexus. I got two off eBay for $3.00 delivered the next day. Good thing we had both fobs with us or we would have had to find a battery in the middle of nowhere (Kingman, AZ)
