    2006 W639 Viano eating key batteries

    It's the type below. Batteries only seem to last a week or so. I presume it's a short or a dodgy button, I'm just wondering is there a known issue/fix? The lock button on the other key I have doesn't work either, any way of replacing these on the cheap? How much does coding cost?

    Yuasa batteries - any good?

    The E55 is fitted with a Yuasa maintenance-free battery; can't tell the exact type - the markings are hidden. It looks like new, but then, hidden under the seat, so it should. Does anyone have any experience of these? I've had them on bikes in the past, but not on cars. E55BOF
