Have you replaced the battery inside the key?
(the key plastic splits open to reveal the batery)

Usually the battery will last a few years.. But perhaps your battery was defective.
Since a battery in there usually lasts way longer you should be able to ask the dealer to replace it.
If it is not the battery then yes the whole key should be replaced under warranty.

try cleaning and making sure the contacts. I had the remote stop working one day and a new battery didn't make a difference. Cleaning the dust out of the area of the battery and making the contacts tighter to the batter made it work again.
