Vehicle wireless controls (550)

My car has the usual 3 remotes, 1 red + 2 black, described in the manual as Master and Slave (sounds like something out of dubious video!!). Can someone please tell me what is the difference?

My blacks work better than my red, despite that the batteries in both blacks are showing less voltage - is there any obvious explanation for this?

Is there anything that the red on does that the blacks don't? I am intending to carry a black one with me rather than the red, but I don't want to find I needed to have the red one with me for some reason.

Thanks.

Best wishes, John

John- This explains it all. Differences in ranges on fobs is most likely due to contact/battery interface differences.

Like Brian said, no difference in day to day operation of red and black fobs and the red fob is not a precious jewel to be preserved.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks, Terry, that is very useful and most informative - you are a mine of information!

John- Brian and others helped when I wrote that. First edition had quite a few errors.
