This exactly, my buttons each had two contact points which had to make a connection so it was damn near impossible to get tiny enough pieces of foil to stay on that milimeter of rubber carbon, and I couldn't just put it across both of them as that made it malfunction. I took ISO and a qtip and rubbed all the contacts, lots of grime came off and it works like a dream again.

Thank you very much for the tips. I am pleased to report that not only am I able to lock my doors using my keyless entry, but I am unable to lock them as well. Again happy to save moolah.
Thanks. I did the same with another fob, as you did, and it worked also. My particular post was the only way I was able to fix that one.
Just a quick note. When I took mine apart I found that the contacts had a dirty surface over them instead of being shiny. I used isoprol alcohol with a Q-tip to gently clean the dirt off of the contacts and rubber pads and put it back together. It has worked fine every time since.
Good to know. Thanks.
This repair using tin foil works great with TV remotes too.

OMG you just made my day!. Saved me tons. Dealership wanted to charge for new fob. Others said I needed new car battery, starter or computer system. Wow, thanks
Awesome! Just fixed mine. Thanks!
