Default Key fob problems

GM key fobs have two distinct problems:

1. the battery contact arm loses good contact with the circuit board
Symptoms: the fob has a short range and/or is intermittently completely non-functional
Solution: carefully add solder to the battery contact arm connection points on the circuit board


2. button pad electrical contact has failed
Symptoms: one or maybe two buttons quit working or work poorly
Solution: replace the button pad for about $10

I've seen GM button pads on ebay for under $5 lately. Can't speak for their quality.
