    For a while my key fob has been acting up. The unluck botton hasn't worked in the longest time, and the lock button would work occasionally. I only have one for the truck and I didn't feel like paying the money to replace it. Tried a new battery, and still the same nothing. Today I took it apart and noticed the slightest cracks in the connections for the buttons. A little solder on them and WALA! Just figured I'd post this up incase anyone else was having issues.

    When I soldered them I held the circuit board vertical and held the soldering pen on it for a minute, since the connections to the circuit board are right on the edge of the button, and the solder wasn't hitting them too well. Hope this helps someone else.
