Lightbulb Key Fob remote problem SOLVED!

I finally found out why my remote keyless entry wasn't working. Everyone I talk to has problem with these dumb remotes. I tried replacing the battery. For one of the remotes I had to re-solder the battery terminal. But still the unlock and lock buttons didn't work, the other ones did. It turns out after a bit of searching on the web, that the actual rubber/metal contacts that touch the circuit board when you push the buttons were actually worn out. I tried to glue some foil to the buttons, they would work for a while but eventually come off. I ended up buying a small $10 pad that slides right inside the remote and fixes all the buttons. Its been 4 months and the remotes still work great. A couple of my friends have used them on other gm car remotes. The company that makes the pads is . I thought i would post this since it seems like so many people have had the same problems with these remotes as I did.

One of my remotes was not working and the dealer said they had to clean the contacts in it (under warranty still) and its working fine now. So don't wait until your warranty expires get it fixed under warranty.
