Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that there could be an issue with the keyless entry receiver but the most likely cause for a key fob not working would be the fob itself. If the battery has been replaced and the fob will not work then the next step will be to have the fob tested to see if it is transmitting. If it is not transmitting then it will need to be replaced. Most big chain parts stores such as Autozone will test key fobs for free.
