Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the keyless entry functions on a key have stopped working? If hat's the case it could be a keyless entry receiver issue but it's more likely to be the key itself. It may have failed or the battery may simply need to be replaced.

Do you have a second key, and if so does it still work?
