My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Try standing next to the vehicle and hold the lock and unlock button down on the remote and see if this relearns the remote to operate again.This is one procedure I know of that works on some models.If this procedure does not work here let me know.
Thanks Pete

See if disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnecting it resolves the issue here.If this does not work let me know.
Thanks Pete
