Low key fob battery

So today my clicker (Key fob as I now know it as.) wasn't working, so I had to unlock my car with the actual key, and the alarm went off so I closed the door and tried to lock it with the clicker and it eventually stopped, then I tried the same process a few times and the same thing happened, so I opened it and hoped in real quick and turned the car on so it would stop, and where it usually has the MPGs or temps and stuff it said Key fob batt low, just thought it was kinda cool that the car could tell from what I'm assuming was the weaker signal it was getting from the clicker

My FOB only unlocks and trunk release - lock button works rarely if pressed
hard and held for 1-2 mins
I found a old FOB in trunk, battery was good no functions work on this one

Any cheap fixes??, I tried cleaning button contacts but didn't work

be nice to have one working

Its the rubber contact piece for the buttons. They've been a bit of a problem area.
