    Not resolved.
    Per a local independent repair shop diagnoses, the Total Integrated Power Module is shorting at the fuse pin for the door locks, along with other fuse pins. The part has not been replaced

    Keyless remote activates by itself if the key is in close proximity of vehicle - battery had to be taken out of remote because it was activating so much it killed the vehicle's batter!!!
