Hi and welcome... not had this issue myself but I did have a friend also in Canada who had problems like this with his Ram pickup? (He was told this by his local dealer) "Changing the battery should't make it lose it's programming. You could have accidently broke the hold down on the battery. This apparently is a common issue."
He was told that if the key still starts the vehicle, he might have be able to get it reprogrammed/fixed or replaced by the dealer.. again at his own expense.
Not much help sorry..

No, dealer told him that if he can still start the car with the key (Transponder chip in the key still working correctly) and it's just the button functions not working correctly then, the dealership MIGHT be able to repair it or reprogram it BUT they may not be able too
( your key might have a different fault from my buddies) and if the key CAN'T be repaired/reprogrammed then a new key would probably be required unless you use the second (spare) key. What my buddy did do was take it and get the dealership to check it out, lucky for him his key (Dodge Ram) just needed to be reprogrammed but again at his expense. As far as I'm aware, programming can only be done by a dealer with the correct software..
