Sorry ok so I have 2005 sts I have no issues love the car but for a while now the driver door and front passenger doors give me issues to open I need the physical key to renter the car 9 out of 10 times. I will pull the handle and the door simply won't open . Now when starting the car this is a recent problem perhaps I would say 3 -4 months now the central info will tell me no fob and the vehicle wount start luckily I found out that u out the key fob in the central glove box fob holder and it starts . So basically it's really 2 issues 1 is the door most of the time it wount open naturally as designed I need the physical key and #2 is the not recognizing the fob and be car wount start . I changed the batteries of the fob to try that but same stuff. And I service and maintain the car myself but this is a bit over my heading you would be so kind to perhaps shed some light open the situation it would be great even if you rattle of couple of solutions and if nothing I will try all of them or replace what u say till one of them solves it would greatly appreciate it

From inside the vehicle do all door locks and trunk release work from the buttons on the vehicle?

If so then reprogram your key fobs to the vehicle. If the issue remains where as both fobs fail to enter and start the vehicle then you need to replace the remote control door lock receiver and use a scan tool to program it to the vehicle.
