You should always put a new battery in your key or key FOB when it won't unlock the doors anymore. A battery is under $5.00 and takes 3 minutes to install.
Spray penetrating oil in the door key hole and work the key to lubricate the lock tumblers. Where's your spare key? Try the spare key if the one you've been using is worn. It's dumb if you don't have a spare key. If you lose your key it will cost you at least $200 to have the car towed to the dealer to be reprogrammed for the new key.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

Start with the easiest and cheapest. Replace the battery

just open up the key and identify the number of battery, or just check the dealership first
they just may be open to service the cars, they never stop breaking down....
