Check fuse #6 in the dash fuse box first. It is for the keyless entry module. If the fuse is good and hos power, try the programing instructions below and see if the door locks cycle up and down. If not, the keyless entry module is located under the center of the dash and below are the instructions for that.

Not without a scan tool that can communicate with it. Simple code readers will not.

Before replacing the keyless entry module, have it properly tested first to make sure it is the problem.
