    Something like this happened to me, turns out that the battery holder is a week point in the key, just by simply dropping the key will cause it to break. The guy in Vauxhall just opened it up, and packed it out with a bit of cardboard as a temporary fix until i decide to get it replaced .... that was 6 months ago, it's still working OK.
