Considering that solder melts at 183 °C /361 °F, I'll bet those parts were "missing" from the factory. It's not uncommon for electronics to have empty spots. I find it highly unlikely you kept your spare key in a place that got hot enough for parts to fall off.

I'd try a new battery and see if the car just needs to have it re-programmed.

for long time it was there with out any use..so i think the solder gets dried, as it is common for smd components.there is no issue with other ones.so i thought if any one knows about it i can purchase the components and solder it back,no need to throw the oem fob.

What you say may be true, but I have two Cobalt fobs that had to be soldered back together. The battery clips came off and I am in the midwest.
