All Buttons on Keyless Remote Open the Trunk

Like the title says...

This started happening on my aftermarket fob about a month after replacing the battery. No matter which button I press, the trunk opens, instead of whatever the button is supposed to do.

Does anyone know a cause and cure?

Thanks.

What kind of aftermarket? Take it apart and clean the surface of the board.

Thank you, Coby7. Inspired by your suggestion, I opened up the remote and discovered that the battery had slipped out of position. Apparently it was shorting out some circuits, because now that it's properly placed, the remote works fine.
