Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

It's possible that the problem is on the vehicle, and if the issue truly started as a result of a dead battery then there is a better chance of it, but it's more likely that the problem is with the fob. It may not be transmitting when the buttons are pressed and the fob is the first thing that needs to be addressed.

If you have a digital voltmeter you can remove the battery from the fob and test it. If the battery is good, or if replacing it doesn't help, then the next step will be to see if the fob is transmitting. Most big chain parts stores will test key fobs for free. If the fob isn't transmitting yet the battery is good then it will need to be replaced.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
