    My fobs both fell apart from regular use (I only have 23,000 miles on my Raptor), but the keys are cheap plastic and the batteries required constant replacing. Once replaced, the plastic became weaker and the keys would fall apart in my pocket, or in my gym bag, to the extent that now both are just taped up with electrical tape and won't attach to my key chain. I mentioned this at the dealer when getting the last recall addressed, and they said they would "see what they can do." See what they can do translates to charge me $450 per key to replace. These keys aren't worth $10. Are there any after market solutions or better keys out there? I think I am going to sell the truck as a $70k truck should have better keys to start with and certainly better support from the manufacturer. I have had "smart" keys from other brands, even older Fords, but never seen one suck this bad and be told essentially to F off by the dealer .

    You're funny. Had mine since Dec 2016, 43,000 miles and no issues with my keys. No battery replacement or anything else.
