Old key finder

Miss K usually loses her keys somewhere in the house so i dug up an old key finder (unopened) from a surplus parts box she got me last christmas. Pulled the battery tabs and tried to program it but the beeper part that attaches to the keychain just beeped and beeped like crazy. I could reset it into learning mode but it would quickly jump into learned and beeping mode.

Quick Fix! Stuck it in the microwave and programmed it in there. The microwave is a small faraday cage and luckily filtered the same frequencies that were interfering with the keyfinder.
