NO IT DOES NOT RECHARGE!!
failure on my part to walk out believing him that the key can be replaced under warranty.
as for the replacement thing, I don't know the components enough to take apart the key.
at this point i would buy key fob and try swapping the components or pay $ 500 for new key. i think thats how much it goes for
