One of the pitfalls of keyless-go is that you need to remember to put the fob in a place thatís not a spill-zone. I used to toss it in the spare cupholder, but when my coffee mug almost tipped over and drowned the fob, I realized I need a new place to keep the fob, so it stays in my coat jacket or it gets tossed in the door map pocket, far away from my drinks...

If you want details on how to take the key apart, there's a video here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=JPeFSTjs4zI
but, like the video mentioned above, and any other source I found, it's a hack job. So if you go the link here and find my post under the name "chev rolet" which I posted the same day I did this, you'll see my extensive comments on how to do it with minimal damage. My key looks just as it did before I opened it, which is rather new looking btw, unlike the keys in the vids.
I took mine apart for other reasons, but mainly it was to make the trunk button harder to activate. I noticed earlier that if squatted or leaned on something, crap in my pocket would push the button and pop the trunk. One morning I came out and my trunk had been open all night! I guess it did while I was indoors. So inside under the button you'll see a little tit of plastic that pushes the actual button on the circuit board. I shaved .025" off that tit and it's about 4x harder to push now, and no problems since.
I also modded it to accept a more common and larger 2032 battery. I simply trimmed it where the plastic was in the way (yellow arrows). No need to take the key apart for this, I just used a pocket knife. So fyi if anyone has any use for any of this info
