I had a similar problem on my Toyota Corolla. The transmitter just quit, and I had to replace the transmitter. If you have a loose fob, you're lucky, I had to replace the ignition key which has a built in transmitter and is much more expensive.
A new fob has to be encoded, but you can find instructions on the net for your particular vehicle. If you think your dealer price is too high, check ebay, there are fobs for just about any car. Good luck.

SOURCE: Code to program my key fob

Here are the program instructions

1. Close the vehicle doors.
2. Turn OFF the ignition.
3. Remove the key from the ignition.
4. Press and hold the driver side door lock switch in the UNLOCK position.
5. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder and remove the key. (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder.)
6. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder and remove the key. (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder.)
7. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder. (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder.) Leave the ignition key in the ignition lock cylinder.
8. Release the door lock switch. The vehicle will sound three beeps in order to verify the Program Mode has been activated.
9. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the keyless entry transmitter and hold until the vehicle beeps twice to verify that the transmitter has been successfully programmed (this take approximately 15 seconds).
10. Perform the previous step to program up to four transmitters (including your old ones).
11. Remove the ignition key in order to exit the Program Mode

Try reprogramming it.

1. Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 6 seconds.
2. Turn the ignition OFF. The system will chime to confirm programming mode.
3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on first keyless remote.
The system will chime once to confirm programming.

4. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote.
System will chime once to confirm programming.

5. Turn ignition to RUN to exit programming mode.

If the little light doesn't work when you push a button, it's either dead, or fried. Be sure you put the battery in correctly too.

2002 montana program key fob


Key fobs tend to hold their code indefintely. The batteries in them are probably burnt. Open up one of the fobs and replace the battery (hearing aid type) then they should work fine. Good Luck!~
