when you say transponder works -- you mean the rfid pill that talks
to the immobilizer and you can start the car.

if that is the case I don't think you need to have it reprogrammed.

you might just need a new battery.

I also have a remote that no longer works and like you I thought it should be a simple fix because I could see the red LED flashing on the remote when I pressed a button. Then I read another thread where the author pointed out that a functional remote blinks very rapidly when pressed while some non-functional remotes blink at a steady slow rate. When I checked my fobs I could see the non-functional one blinked slowly. There are no dealers near me so I haven't tried getting it fixed.

If you find a solution please post it.
