Hello and welcome to just answer. The remote itself may have failed. Have it tested at your auto parts store or hardware store. They will test it for free. If it will not put out a signal, then purchase a new remote and have it programmed to your truck.

If the remote does test good, then the RKE module on the back of the instrument cluster has failed and will need to be replaced.

I hope this information helps, and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
