Guess what, I know how you can fix you key fob.....

"If you know more than me about how to do my job please sit right down at the keyboard and handle the problem.

However if you can't do that, sit down, shut up, and get out of my way."

I wonder if my boss would get mad if I started explaining that to my clients.

I just did a post. It should get moved to the DIY board prolly though.

Are you good at soldering?

This happened to one of my keyfobs too, I soldered the battery contact holder back into place and it started working again, of course the keyfob reset was required.

By good at soldering I mean, the solder can't end up all over the keyfob, just were it belongs.

soldering guns are cheap, 15-20 bucks, you should always have one or three around the house (i can never find them so I accumulate them).

Thats the fastest way, or you can ship it to me (with a couple bucks and return shipping money) and I can fix it and ship it back, but that will take longer.

I'm sure walmart has them.

I got my butane one at home depot, radio shack has them.

They would be with electrical repair tools usually.

I fyou do alot of work on your car, car audio, etc, they are great to have at home.
