We lost one of our keys to the SRX and found it. In a pocket of clothes we washed and dried. I tried the unlock button... Nothing. Dead.

I took the fob apart (just pried it apart with the key) and replaced the battery.

It works!

Just a little advice to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation. Don't panic and go buy a new key (they sell them for about $60 on ebay - yes, I looked) or try the reprogramming (put the good key in cup holder, bad key in the magical center console and click your heels 5 times.)

Just make sure the key is fully dry before putting the new battery in.
