You should just have to re-program your key fob. Hold on, I'll type up the procedure.

Actually, for the 2014 model year, you need techsteam software to program the fob. If you have a laptop, you can buy the software and obd2 cable to do it yourself. Otherwise a dealer will charge an arm and a leg. You can try putting a new battery in the fob. But if the battery was disconnected front the vehicle for more than a couple minutes, I'm sure the programming is the issue.
