When I got the car it either worked immediately or after two or three presses. Now (after a few months) it doesn't work at all anymore.

Is there an easy fix for this? The battery on both fobs is fine.

I'd pay $500 for the damn thing to work.

Does the trunk release button inside the car work? The button is located near the accelerator (gas) pedal.

Check this to rule out any potential wiring problems going in to the trunk lid, to the actuator for the lock.

I have trouble with a "butt dial," opening the trunk accidently when the fob is in my pocket with something else. I guess they require a hold time on the button to minimize this. I'm thinking I should just get the fob surgically implanted under my skin like a pacemaker and be done with it.

Nothing wrong with fob, problem is you did not RTFM.
