It turns out that one of the batteries (the one of the 3 that tested the strongest) was not a CR3032 but, instead, a CR2025. (Oddly enough, it was in a pack of two that I purchased which was labeled as containing CR3032 batteries but one was actually a 2025.) Both are 3V lithium and, other than life span, basically the same ... EXCEPT that the 2025 is a bit thinner. One site that talked about the differences in these "button batteries" mentioned using a shim to get the 2025 working. I stick a small piece of cardboard behind the battery in the ATV remote and - VOILA - it now operates the ATV as it should. Mystery solved!
