It's probably the battery in the key fob. Open the car with the spare, but drive with the main one. That will make sure all the codes are fine, as well as charge the battery. If it's still not how good it should be, then think about changing the battery, which is only like $4 from Dick Smith anyways!

Yes, the phillips head screws, undo them, then try twisting the metal part of the key and it should pull apart the two sides for you!

LOL, ok, your not one of the people that goto dick smith's to get them to fit batteries?! :O You know how many og them i get at the non powerhouse stores!? It's ridicoulous. All because locksmiths charge heaps, and they come to us and just buy the battery and we do it!
