Welcome to the forum. It looks like you found the problem. Either solder the battery holder back on or get a couple of replacement key fobs and then get your vehicle programmed to recognize them. The programming part can be done by the service department or an automotive locksmith.

Thanks for your immediate response.
I really don't know that much about car, is it very difficult to do it myself?
How much does it cost roughly if I bring it to the body shop and let them fix it?

Thanks again!

If you've never used a soldering iron before, take it to someplace that repairs electronics (any TV repair shops around?). The kind of key fob in your picture costs around $50 a piece plus programming (another $50-100) from the service department. You could get two for that price by buying them from eBay and then calling around for an automotive locksmith. This all assumes there's nothing wrong with the receiver on your vehicle.
