My question is how do I get the fob buttons to work again, or is the key fob shot and do I need to get a new one? The one that I have is only 9 months old. Is there a easy fix for this or is there something that might be shut off that I don't know about? My second key fob that came with the car works fine, Anyone got any answers that I could try to get my intelligent smart key to start working like it is suppose to?
After searching the internet for my Intelligent key problem that had stopped working here is the answer that worked.
Remove key from the back of key fob, press start button twice inside of car but be sure not to start the vehicle. Next get out of car and close the door, insert metal key into drivers side key slot on door handle and turn key to lock and unlock position once. Go back into car and shut off ignition by pressing start button once, ignition is now off. Problem fixed, this worked for me which saved me time and effort running back to the dealer. Note this may have to be done again when changing a dead key fob battery, not to mention it might just save someone about a $100 .00 or more.
