    I just replaced the battery in the key fob but the dash indicates the battery is low. It's intermittent... Some days it says it's low and other days no problem.

    Keep the key fob away from your cellphone. That's what worked for me.

    They do go bad in storage. Try another IMHO.

    (I mean you changed it from an older battery that more consistently gave the low bat warning, to one in slightly better health that is now intermittent)?
