I was hoping it would be as simple as sourcing a 2 button new style key and having it cut and programmed to the existing security system in the car, hence doing away with the seperate fob.

Both of the keyring parts on my seperate fob have snapped off. I know new fob cases are available at cheap as chips prices but can the old type seperate fob be updated to 2 button key fob so that the remote is a part of the key?
