I love the wall of shame and the pricing that goes up if you tried to fix first.

I drilled holes through my keys to put Allen screws to bolt them shut. I did earn a spot on the wall because I drilled through a trace on one of the 6 holes. Fortunately I caught it and fixed with a jumper.

Both of my keys had broken solder joints. Neither was the battery. One had a bad Battery I replaced with the correct rechargable. It's not a good first timer job but if you've torn into "no user serviceable parts" especially cutting into plastic it's not a terribly difficult job.

The key [sic] is that you want to have another working key first so if you have one key only, get a duplicate from the dealer and then once it's programed as the master you can tear into the non remote one.
