Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

With all of that going on you should have some codes in the vehicle, have you had it scanned for any codes?

So next step is to take all key fobs to the auto parts store and they can check the signal and battery there, we need to have full functioning fobs for the alarm system to work properly,

i've already swapped the battery and nothing happened. I'll go back to the auto store to see if they can check the signal.
