The answer to your question is: with a factory scan tool. I can watch the scan tool and see if the transmitter signal is being received, and I can also test the transmitter to make sure it's transmitting. It sounds like you've already verified that, but relearning the fob to the car would be the first step, and this also requires a factory level scan tool.
