The keyless entry system may stop working. Our technicians tell us the key fobs and keyless entry receiver may need to be replaced to correct this fault.

  • Used the remote last winter. Now this year it will not work at all. Remote door locks and alarm still work fine.

    BOTH keyless entry remotes stopped working, replaced batteries in each, same problem.
    However, if unlock door with key or open door, remotes will work, but STOP working after about a minute of inactivity.
    Had dealer's mechanic look at it and they determined the receiver needs replacement at a cost of $482.
    I can live with this inconvenience a while longer until I can find a less expensive option. My mechanic suggested an aftermarket alarm/door lock system to replace the factory receiver.
