Boxster Remote Key Failure

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Model (Boxster, Boxster S,Cayman, Cayman S): Boxster S; Year: 2002; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock S; Total Mileage: 51000; Transmission: Manual;

Have 2 remote keys; replaced battery in backup (LED didn't light), LED then flashed once, but remote still inoperative. Primary remote key started to operate intermittently; replaced battery, worked fine for 2 weeks, replaced battery again, and LED binks once only, remote inoperative, just like backup. Is this common to have the remote circuitry fail? Alternatives? Using key in door and racing against the 10 second limit before alarm activation is becoming a nuisance, especially when strangers wonder if I'm stealing (my own) car!
