What happens if the Fob battery dies? Can you still start the truck? Is the Fob battery easy to change?
It's essentially the same type of fobs I have in my challenger with keyless go. The batteries typically last two years or so and they are about 4 bucks for a two pack at Walmart. As far as still being able to start your truck if the fob battery is dead, I am sure like the challengers there is actually a key blank in the fob and you can pop off the keyless start button on the ignition module and there is a key hole. Hope this makes sense
