I replaced the 2032 battery in my remote with a fresh one that I had checked with a voltmeter, but this message keeps appearing about 75% of the times I start the car.

I couldn't find anything in the manual about resetting something so that I no longer see it. Even after I press the 'Enter' button, the message disappears but I'm still left with the little orange 'I'.

I guess that's a possibility but my wife rarely ever drives my PP. Just for the hell of it, I'm gonna change hers too because she's often in the car with me.

Thanks, I'll let you know if that takes care of it. 👍

You might be on the correct path.
I'll compare your Passport "Keyless Remote Linking & Setup" to that of my old MDX requirements.

For the MDX:
Sit in the car, with the doors closed.
Press Lock on the Key fob.
Press Lock & Unlock together, once.

Good luck finding the correct "Keyless Remote Linking & Setup" procedure, for the Passport.

Thanks, I'll try that if replacing my wife's remote battery doesn't take care of it.

There is no procedure. If it detects the remote battery is low it will flash that message. If the battery is good it won't. For whatever reason the remotes sometimes do not like aftermarket batteries. I'm not sure if the quality control of the batteries is poor or they're just old, but we see it a lot at the dealership. Customers will replace them and say the light is still on and we put one of our batteries in and the notification is gone.

Sometimes batteries are defunct even though brand new. Can you try another two?
And don't allow the 2032 to touch each other in your pocket or a drawer unopened.
They will overheat and melt or burn whatever they are next to.

I agree completely with your above Quality Control statement and it applies to car manufacturers too. See Honda Recall #101, Controls and Displays and #111, Rear Visibility.
