Given that the Model S operates automatically off of the Key Battery, what will a driver do if the Key Battery dies. This happened to me once with a Lexus key fob. The battery died and I could not operate the car until I had replaced the battery. But what if you are out on a camping trip or someplace else remote where a replacement battery is unavailable. Is there a backup battery in the key fob? Is there someway to enter an "unlock" code into the car so you can start it? How do you open a door if the key battery dies?
Tesla may already have published the answers to these questions. If so, I would appreciate any links to pages that discuss this topic.
Thanks for your help
