Well you obviously can get on the internet, lol. Have you tried replacing the battery in the fob? TBH, it seems unlikely a two year old key fob battery would die this soon. "No key present" does not mean "dead battery in key fob." There is a "key fob detent" in the center counsel. Place the key there and see if that helps. You should also, per the manual, NOT have any additional keys on the key fob key ring. That also means no doodads and thingamajigs hanging on the same key ring.
