Make sure you actually use key in door cylinder once in a while so the door cylinder does not get stuck from lack of use...

First time you have dead battery, you be glad cylinder will accept key and rotate to unlock door the old fashion way

Had customer at Toyota yrs ago with big thing of keys handed over for service,,, I took the key we need to operate car and toss rest in console.. lady and husband show up and pay,, she goes on to ask where her stuff was.... "in the console"... they come get me, and I walk out and proceed to say she cant het into car,, as she does not have remote to open door,, all the while standing there holding key....

I take key, and go to stick it in door... STUCK.... Back in and get can of spray,, shoot cylinder, and tap on key and it finally go in.. then I rotate and unlock door,,, she says I never use key, I use remote.. I proceed to tell her she need to use key every so often to keep cylinder free.. husband stand at other side of car with smirk on his face
