keyless remote went dead

Hi All

The wife and I went for a beverage tonight and when we came out the keyless remote wouldn't unlock the car, it was dead. I sat there for a few minutes trying to remember what I had read here.
I held in both buttons on the remote at the same time for a few seconds and the car horn beeped and all was well.
Why did this happen??? Did i fix the problem or will it happen again??? Does it happen often with Vipers??? Is it worth taking both remotes so the other one would work if one doesn't???

Thanks

Replace the battery in the remote just to be safe.

I keep a baatery in the car just in case.

The reason it happens might be when the button is pushed to many times without unlocking the car it needs to be reset. You did the right thing, but the reason is most likely the botton was pushed or held down while you had it in your pocket.... or the battery is going dead.

Thats also what happens when the cars 12 volt main battery is disconnected. You have to set the remotes as you did. I would also look at the battery cables being dirty, corroded, and you messed with it enough to get a connection. The heavy draw of the starter will also melt it a connect at the cables. Check them if hasn't been done in a while.
