    My car's a 2001, with remotes that look like this: One of the originals is quite worn-looking: the Panic button's (never used) red panel has disappeared, and the outlines on the other buttons have long worn away. A newer remote would look better. I can swap the electronics and key blade and...

Replaced the battery, when I unlock the car the car unlocks and the alarm goes off. The led on the remote blinks. I only have the...
