keyless entry stoped working. If you unlock the door with the key and not open the fob works fine. of cource dealer wants to replace reciever for $500

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.
