The receiver for the remote transmitter is located in that area of the impact and will need to be inspected and probably reset with a dealer special scan tool that can access the system. They sure could have designed this easier for the customer to reset it but they didnt so please dont hold that against me,I'm just the guy that has to tell you the truth about these systems. Sorry for your inconvenience but try to enjoy the holiday anyway!
