I have searched a number of threads here and across google and uncovered various problems but not the one I am seeing so I'm hoping for some input:
New to me '06 9-3. When we picked up the car the key fob worked perfectly. Within a week we go the low battery warning lamp. I have replaced the battery (even bought a second one and replaced it). But I am still getting the battery warning light. Car starts but fob won't unlock doors. I tried various methods of repeatedly unlocking the door when near/in the car per things I'd read with no luck. I also replaced the outer rubber housing since it was in bad shape. Internals look good and I don't see any corrosion. I would think it's electronics in the fob itseld if I get the low battery message still? Anything else to look at? if it is the electronics what's involved with replacing that? Does the key need to be coded somehow? Thanks!

Ok. Appears that vertical connector piece is gone. Must have broken off. So I need a new remote internals. Does this need to be programmed somehow?
