My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received 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.

If you have not replaced the battery in the remote this would be the first step to see if this resolves the fault here.If this was done or is done and does not correct this fault then most likely the fault is with the remote itself with it needing replaced.I have seen the remote fail several times and cause this issue here.It will need tested with a signal tester (most shops or a dealer have these ) to see if for sure that it needs replaced then programmed to work in your model here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
