My Key fob terminals had tarnished /corroded a bit, and used emery cloth to clean them up, worth a try..

I keep one ignition key plus the seperate keyfob hidden under my Jeep in case of an emergency....occasionally swapping them over with the other set.

Both keys and the tumblers are worn out after nearly 20 years of usage but I find it weird that I have not had to replace batteries yet in either keyfob....I have probably jinxed myself now!;)

I use my VOM to test the button battery voltages. They do last an extremely long time in warmer climates.
If you work outside, batteries do not like the cold.
I recently changed mine & have learned to keep them warm, like an inside pocket when below freezing.

I have a new fob I got when I bought the 04 new, and it still works , tried it a while ago.
Been laying in a drawer at the farm all these years
The 03 and 05 seem or look like they both have the original batteries in them as well and both still work well
My keys are always in my pocket so they stay toasty warm LOL
