Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

There isnt a VSM on this vehicle. What are you trying to do?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
where is the antenna located for the keyfob door remotes... Sometimes mine works from 50ft away...other times it wont work from 5 ft... New batterys and new remote same issue...
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
also, when this starts acting up at the 5ft distance I start getting intermittent TPSM warnings...
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 11 months ago.

The antenna is internal to the smart junction box.

Usually the remote is bad or theres some outside interference. Does it not work only in certain places? Is there any kind of pattern to it?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I get an intermittent TPMS sensor fault. Sometimes it resets itself, other times the indicatior stays lit. When this occurs the remote starts acting up... Thats the only pattern I have been able to determine
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
should I look at the smart junction box connections ??
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 11 months ago.

Have you checked to see what code is causing it? Im not sure its related. If it is your SJB is likely on its way out., They usually do go out one function at a time unless theres some sort of trauma.

no stored codes ... where is the SJB on this vehicle ??
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
is it the fuse box assembly on the right side kick panel
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 11 months ago.

Its in the passenger side kick panel. I dont have a good location view on it but you should see it. Here are the R&R instructions.

Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 11 months ago.

Yes.. youve found the right thing.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
whats the preferred replacement method and any idea on costs ??
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 11 months ago.

I just gave you the replacement instructions.

Given the programming required youre best off going to a properly equipped shop on this one though.

It should be under 400 at a dealer., Less at a local shop if you can find one properly equipped to do it.
