Keyless Entry (and dumb question #2)

The range of my keyless remote has been getting progressively worse until today when it took getting right up to the side window to unlock the car.

Yes, it's time to replace the batteries. Before I bilthly pop a new set of batteries into the remote, I thought I'd ask if this would create a problem.

I have visions of replacing the batteries, having the code reset in the remote, not being able to unlock my Boxster, having to get a ride back home for my 2nd set of keys, etc.

Is it really as easy as changing the batteries, or is there some hidden Porsche-esque gotcha lurking?

(unrelated dumb question #2)
I had my boxster beep at me when locking up on a trip to Napa. I checked all the obvious things (center console and the front and rear hood) and could see no reason for a beep. It's deeply troubling having your car beep at you. You know she's not happy about something, but have no idea how to make things right!

Later I noticed the oil level was low and topped it up. The beep has gone away. Does the Boxster beep when the oil level is low or is this just coincidental?
