    Hello,

    I was just wondering if people have experienced that the keys for the FOB tend to jam or get stuck. I've had to go back to the dealership about every 6 months to get another FOB reprogrammed. The last few times i was within warranty, but this time i dont want to shell out cash for it.

    Does this happen to other people? and how do you fix it? Let me know. Thanks!

    Regards,

    Steve

    I recall reading a thread with a similar problem; recollection is that the buttons freed up while he was attempting to disassemble the fob (prying halves apart)

    You might try forum search.

    Few people have complained about this. The problem is too much pocket lint. Try keeping the fob somewhere else, or turn your pockets inside out when washing clothes.
