Hi, sorry for not responding last night. It was close to midnight here in Florida when you posted your question and I had already turned in for the night.
What you are describing is a faulty key. It's possible that something went wrong while you were changing the batteries. The circuit board may have cracked when you opened the case. The batteries are not even needed for starting the car. They are only for the remote locking. If you have a spare key you should try it. If you don't have a spare you can try leaving the battery disconnected for 12 hours and the system may reset itself. As far as the locks are concerned you should check fuse 42 in the fuse box under the hood.
Let me know how you make out.
