    Do you have the standard key fob, or the smart "communicator"? The communicator has 2 batteries in it.

    You might clean the contacts for the battery. Is there a 2nd Fob that is working correctly? That would point to a problem with the one specific key fob.
    The console message will self-extinguish when the fob stops broadcasting a "low battery" to the car.

    I had the same problem for a week or two. I bought replacement batteries on-line. Then the message mysteriously disappeared and hasn't returned for over a year. The batteries are unopened in a drawer.
