There've been other threads on this issue. The prong idea might be a good one, but I'd be careful about bending them too many times.

For me the alcohol trick has been the magic. From time to time, my fobs will work less and less. All I do is open them up and carefully clean all of the contacts and both sides of the battery with rubbing alcohol on a q-tip. I've done it now 3 time, and after each time, they work perfectly again, and continue to for a number of months. It's funny that they look perfectly clean when I open 'em up, but there must be some film or something that affects the contact.

I'll pass credit for it to another owner/poster.
