    My key has not been used for about a month. Itried to open the door today but the key is dead. Had tu open manually. When I turn it in the ignition nothing happens the ignition light does not come on. I believe these keys charge while you are driving so my battery is probably dead. Can these be replaced.

    If the key has not been used for a month then the car hasn't been used for a month so the battery on the car will be flat.

    When you opened the door manually did the other locks go up?
