Also can't get the remote reprogram to go active so I can reprogram remote
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.

It's located under the defroster grille, on the upper part of the dash. Remove the defroster grille and you'll see it under there.

A replacement RCDLR must be programmed with dealer equipment, so keep that in mind if you think you need to replace it.

The fuse for the RCDLR is the DISPLAY fuse, 10A, in the underhood fuse block.

I remove that vent cover and I cannot find a fuse there is it in the Dash
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.

The fuse is not there. The module is there.

The fuse is in the underhood fuse block, as I described above.

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.

It's called DISPLAY, a 10A fuse.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fuse that says display is fine anything else I should check

If this were in my shop, I'd have a scan tool on it to see what the RCDLR is saying about all of these things. That is the fastest and easiest way to diagnose it. Assuming you don't have a scan tool like this, my best recommendation is to pay a good repair shop a few bucks to plug theirs in and have a look at what the RCDLR is doing. With a scan tool, a tech can verify that the fob button presses are being received, he can see the TPMS sensor readings, etc. Lots of good information that we just don't have.

The cheapest and fastest way to get this fixed is to have it professionally diagnosed, at a minimum, and if it needs an RCDLR, it's going to need to be programmed anyway, so a dealer is your best bet for an overall fix. We can't "see" what the computer sees without this scan tool, and I wouldn't attempt to diagnose it without having that information at my fingertips.
