So, my flip key broke from the fob. The fulcrum piece shattered into pieces.
I went to a locksmith and had a new one made from the blade, but not a factory fob; just a blank. It's attached to the fob via a small ring.
It started the car right away when I tested it.... and then never again. The fob is like 1/2 inch away from where it used to be, just hanging down. Does it have an electrical connection via the blade? Is that why it won't work? I assumed that being in close proximity would be fine.
