Remote does not work, requiring use of the key to enter the vehicle. It is not the battery as it has been replaced. The issue is intermittent. Sometimes, I can unlock the car at 40 feet away, other times, 1 foot away or not at all.

TRY TO USE KEYLESS REOMOTE TO UNLOCK DOORS AND THE RADIATOR FAN KICKS ON AND THE DOORS WON'T UNLOCK AND THE ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON.
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!!!

I have to press the remote on the key several times to get the door unlocked or locked.
Keyless Remote will not unlock doors and key hole on door is just a prop.
My keyless entry will unlock sometimes and sometimes not! It can take up to 2 min to get it to unlock. I hate to unlock the door, the alarm goes off. I lock my doors every night, some mornings, it will be unlocked!? At some point at night it's unlocking. What can I do to resolve this issue??

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
