Hey guys, thanks for all of the replys, lots of good advice. Definitely going to look into reprogramming this sucker when I get home so i don't need the fob to start the engine. Also, there's a little more to the story than I shared in the beginning. Dumbass (AKA me!) spent the morning surf fishing (wading waist deep into saltwater) then cooled off with a quick plunge in the pool. It was shortly after jumping into the pool I realized I had my LT key and fob in my pocket the whole time! Panic started to set in as I went back to the hotel room to dry things out. First problem I had to solve was finding a tiny ass phillips head screw driver to separate the fob apart. Finally got ahold of maintenance and got the fob apart and the inside appeared (to my surprise) very dry. Still went ahead and dried it further with the hair dryer, put it back together and headed for the LT. No luck, red light on the fob would not show any love! I was convinced the soaking did the fob in, but thought I better prove to myself the battery just didn't give up the ghost at a most inopportune time. Had to walk two miles to the nearest drugstore and thanked God they had the right battery. Swapped batteries and sure enough the red light on the fob showed life. Just another two miles back to the bike (88 degrees and 95% humidity!) before confirming the problem really was solved. From now on, extra batteries on the bike at all times and the second fob goes along for the ride!
Thanks again for all the advice!
