Sometimes, due to rough use of the keys, the object undergoes wear and tear. It may also happen that your key circuit is intact, but the shell has suffered from damages. The key fob will be in a functional state in that case. All you need is to remove the internal circuitry from your old fob and reinstate the circuit in a new shell. But obviously, you are not the right person to do the job. You will need the assistance from a locksmith to remove and reinstate the circuit without damaging the wires and programming. Although the swapping involves using a screwdriver for opening the plastic case and moving the entire internal set to the other shell, the job is risky for non-professionals.
