Keyfob is not working to unlock the car or to lock it when I open with my key the alarm goes off till I place it in the ignition it starts the car perfect and my radio is still working perfect so don’t know if its the antenna and keyfob inside looks all good the case was split when I brought it but battery looks like it’s getting connection I don’t know what it could some one help me or point me in the right direction

This is the type with a slot in the dash ? they fob is rechargeable its a case of split the fob and solder a new battery in or a new fob at silly money.

in NA, the keyfob battery is replaceable not-rechargeable if it has comfort access, the battery is for the comfort access/(which has keyless start) for non-ca models the battery is rechargeable as you can only start it in the slot and then that is mainly for the alarm and remote unlock etc. UK maybe different
