I come back with a happy answer!
I took the FOB to an electronics technician and he repaired it. He said he had a short circuit due to some electronic parts and he changed all these inside.
2o euro instead 350!  :)
Thank you all for your advice!

I had a problem with my fob some months ago whereby it stopped being recognised by the bike's KIPASS.  I took it to an electronics repairer who examined the circuitry under magnificantion.  He found that a tiny transistor that had one contact 'open circuit.'  He replaced it once he sourced a new one - $30 for a strip of 200 of them!  Perhaps such a person could find the problem with yours.

Good to see the happy answer.      Freddy nailed it.
