Question 1995 Mustang keyless entry remote will not unlock/lock when the button is pressed.

Hey everyone I had a quick question regarding the 95's keyless entry remote. I bought my car last year from the original owner and at the time, the remote worked perfectly. Every time I tried to lock/unlock the car or open the trunk, the remote worked. Now, I have to press the button multiple times to get it to function. Sometimes holding down the button on the remote will get it to unlock. Other times, I end up pressing the button for a couple of minutes and eventually it will just work.

I can't seem to find a pattern to when the remote decides to not work, but I have noticed that if the car has been sitting a while it has a harder time unlocking/locking than if I've just driven it.

I just bought a couple of batteries for the remote and I'm going to try replacing them, but if anyone has any suggestions as to what else the problem could be, I'd appreciate it.

Yep, probably the battery. Let us know if replacing it helps.
