WK Key Fob Fix
 
All, If your having trouble with your WK key fob working intermittently like I did on both keys the problem may be a bad connection. Open the key fob and carefully examine the bracket that holds the battery. In both cases, the bracket was loose. I re-soldered the connections and I was good to go! Of course, always check the battery first!:)

Any chance you could post pics of your fix? I am sick of mine doing this and they are only a year old!

See the pictures below- The Red arrows are for the battery connection, the yellow are for the antenna connection. Make sure those are good as well.
Please make sure you are experienced with soldering before you attempt. :)

Ooops, sorry I did not notice you have a 2011 - key fob is different than my 2010. Sure this will help someone else in the future though.
