Hey are you still there?
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.

the problem can be that both keys batteries are wearing out at the same time, however, it most likely a problem with the antenna /antenna amplifier which will require the faulty component be replaced. the antenna amp is most common to cause this.
