Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem could be with the keyless entry receiver on the car but that wouldn't be likely. Try the second fob, if it works but one doesn't then the issue has to be the fob itself.

You can have the fob tested for free at most big chain parts stores such as Autozone to see if it is transmitting. If the fob isn't transmitting and the battery is new then the fob will need to be replaced.

Being a 2015 I'm assuming your mileage is low enough that you're still under basic warranty, in which case diagnosing and repairing the issue will be covered at your dealer.
