Hello my name is ***** ***** I think the is likely that the remote has become unprogramed to the car, It happens sometimes.I'm going to get you the instructions to reprogram your remotes so you can try that before you replace anything.

We cannot do the lock-unlock 5 times. It doesn't do it all the way. It slows down.
Expert:  Michael Koster replied 5 months ago.

what do you mean it slows down?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It makes the lock and unlock noise but does not physically lock and unlock.

During the programing that is what is supposed to happen its just giving you feed back so you know its working.
