Alarm remotes

Both of the alarm remotes attached to the keys of my '05 GC stopped working. First thing I did to try to resolve this was to replace the batteries. Turns out the little bracket that holds the battery against the circuit board had broken off (on both). Since I have the extended warranty (at 50K mi), I went down to the dealership to get these both replaced. Come to find out that: a. these aren't covered under the extended warranty, b. they want $250 per key to replace! Ouch!!

I'm going to try to solder the bracket back into place myself first before I plunk down $500 for a set of keys. Anyone else have an experience like this? I find it very odd that both keys failed in the same way and that $250 for a replacement key is a bit excessive...

$250 is way too much. I got mine for $120 plus $20 cutting/programming fee. Still too much for a key IMO. See if you can buy a blank off of ebay then just bring it to the stealer to cut/program.
