Exclamation Key Fob Stopped working!!!

My key fob hasn't had any issues until now. Over the past week it has gotten worse and worse and now it doesn't work at all. So i went to Wally world and purchased 2 CR2032's. I replaced it and still nothing? I even cleaned the contacts, i'm stuck...

Try slightly bending the contact points in before putting the batteries in, I find that over time most key fobs contact points stretch out. If that doesn't work then it may not be the batteries. I know on older chrysler fobs if the battery gets low enough it will reset the programming for the truck.

If you have the FOB with the remote start button, try starting your '09, using the FOB
or hit the Panic button instead

I had to do that a time or 2
most of the time i click the Lock button a time or 2, then hit the Unlock button

I have noticed that when i stand near to the drivers door, the FOB doesn't work as well as when i stand at the rear passenger side tail light
don't ask me why

I had the same issue.... Simple fix like moparornocar said. Just pop the remote case apart and bend the four prongs that touch the battery up slightly (mine were laying flat to the circut board) and snap case back together. Works like new now.
