Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Do you own a volt meter so we can check the radio circuits at the back of the radio?

Have you tried the sliding door initialization?

reprogramming the doors had no effect.
I am physically disabled and cannot access the back of the radio at this moment. Tell me what the readings should be what else I can do until I can get those readings.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 10 months ago.

Someone that was physically able to check the radio would verify the radio is getting battery voltage on the power wires and verify the ground wires had no resistance. What they would be looking for is a confirmation that the radio is getting all it needs to work to determine if the concern was within the radio itself or the circuits to it. The next steps would be doing a bunch of electrical diagnostics to determine why the PSDs and keyless entry are not working. If you feel like you could do tests of that nature I am more than willing to forward those to you.

Absolutely, please forward to me the instructions. However it may take me a few days to check does that matter timewise for this case to be open?
