Hello all, I am having an issue with my key fob.

I replaced the batteries in both remotes and the key fobs will not unlock/lock/remote start unless I take the key fob apart and press on the appropriate button AND press the battery.
I even lifted the three (3) prongs under the battery to increase the battery’s connection to the prongs.

I have the four (4) button remote: panic, lock, unlock and remote start.

I am outside of my warranty (2015 year model) and I can imagine the dealership charging an arm and a leg for any repairs/assistance.

Any suggestions?

It kinda sounds like the remote wasn't put back together properly after changing the batteries. I've never changed mine, but that's my best guess.

I am having the same problem but only with the remote start button. I tried completely disassembling the remote and then reassembling one piece at a time and testing the remote start button each time. It looks like the problem starts when I place the black plastic insert onto the rubber pad.
