Hi there. You are referring to the remote to unlock the doors, correct?

Also, this is a push button start, correct?

The small key will only get you into the vehicle.

The remote and the key (starting system) utilize different technologies. So it would be unlikely that the car will stop running because the remote doesn't work.

Faced with the same issue, and not every shop has one of these, I would get the remote tested with a radio frequency tool - I'm not suggesting you buy this, but ultimately, you will need to have the remote tested.
