I’m also having issues with my 2016 Chevy Cruze’s key fob. At first I thought it needed a new battery because I could not lock the car with it, but it seems the lock button still works, so it must not be the battery. I am considering whether to buy a replacement key fob, but also saw online that sometimes the problem is the contacts are dirty. I saw videos with people cleaning the contacts on other key fobs with an eraser or rubbing alcohol. But I didn’t manage to open the key fob easily and want to make sure not to damage it. If it’s possible to fix this for free just by cleaning, that would be my preference. I also wondered if it was possible to turn off the alarm, because I can handle just using the key itself until I have a working key fob. It can just be difficult to manage keeping a toddler nearby when I have to actually enter the vehicle to start it to turn off the alarm before I can open her door to put her in her car seat. Advice on safely opening the fob to try cleaning the contacts before deciding whether to purchase a new fob would be appreciated, or if there’s a way to disable the alarm for the time being.
