Thanks to Efren Ziegler I was able to regain the functionality of the so-called "fob". While I was parked in my MS, a message appeared on the screen that indicated that I did not have it in the car. However, it was in my pocket. After checking the manual, I waved it around the base of the passenger windshield wiper to no avail. In a panic, I called the service center...even though it was after 5PM. Thank goodness he was available.... So I told him what the problem was, he said he'd call me right back (which he did). He instructed me to walk away from my vehicle 10 feet or so and then re-approach it. I did, it worked, and I drove. But not before thanking him for his help. Just thought I'd make my experience public. And yes I did buy a new battery to keep in the glovebox...just in case.
