OK, I'm not clear on this (still!).  I've got a 98.5
and the range is not more than 10 feet (yeah, I know I
said six feet - call it poetic license).  Even with a
new battery, the range does not change.  So what is
the system, and where are the sensors, and is there an
easy fix?

By the way, the reason for the longer range is in
crowded parking lots where you are not exactly sure
where you parked.
