I notice my prius key fob periodically vibrates in a short burst in my pocket. Is this expected?

Asked by Mar 26, 2019 at 09:18 PM about the 2005 Toyota Prius

Question type: General

Everything works, but I am occasionally distracted by a quick jolt of vibration from the key fob. Manual does not mention this. Just thought I would ask.

Sorry, it is not a "phantom vibration", it is two short jolts and is very noticeable. If phantom vibration is all you have got on this, maybe I asked the wrong forum. I will just try using the other fob.
