Before I go into details about the car -- lets get right into this problem
I've owned the car since July, and only had keyless entry operational for about 4 days? (locked keys inside with the crazy auto relock function)
anyways -- I noticed the red light was dimming very rapidly when I pushed the button but I didnt replace the battery till today. (yes, 6 months without keyless)
now in those 6 months the little black useless looking device broke, I realized it was a hollow piece of plastic on my key ring and threw it out... Im now under the impression it was important as my keyless entry does not work with the new battery I put in the key.
It is a 2004 Rio RX-V (says on the back of the car) 1.5L blah blah blah... you know already..
any ideas for a fix? Its not crazy vital I get it fixed but it'd be nice to have I suppose.
Now for the useless read info (up to you to proceed past this point)
Since I bought the car, I've noticed it has a very rough idle once at OT. the engine seems to BOG hard after getting the clutch all the way up and adding more juice with the accelerator. I Don't rev much past 1500 on take off... Just how I drive. But it bogs pretty hard and it kind drives me nuts, it probably looks like Im a terrible driver when it does that, as the suspension for this car inst particularily "tight". higher rev starts remove the bog, but I like my clutch to last -- a very long time
Cold winters where I live, and I still dont have a block heater. I'm very impressed with the cars ability to start, first time everytime without a crazy long turn over before firing up. even on our -45C cold snap it started seemingly easy. I let the car idle 30-45 min before driving during these colder days, but I noticed the CEL popped on one day and pulled out my handy dandy snapontools code reader. I believe (if I recall correctly) it was P0300 or something.. anyways it was Primary O2 sensor heater circuit fault.. it turns off after a day or two, but will come back on anywhere from 1-2 weeks later with the same code.
Besides that, for a 8,000$ car its damn decent for a daily driver. pretty good on gas, not OMG Impressive, but good. better than my work truck lol. and WTF is with 13" wheels? lol
