If you are absolutely positive those are fresh batteries in those remotes...l think it's off to the Dealership for a diagnosis. Has their been any recent repair work done on this vehicle?

Well, it was a fresh pack of battery. I had service done but not for the remote entry issue.

Reason for the repair history is the Antenna and receiver for your Key Fob(transmitter) sends it's signal to a receiver located on the right rear passenger side of the vehicle...possibly in the Trunk area. You might look around in the trunk and see if any of the side covering has been disturbed. The Dealer will most likely have to replace the Door Control Receiver and reprogram same. Are you having the same problem when you activate the Trunk release and the Panic Button functions?

Yes, it works intermittently on all three buttons

Well..as long as you can ultimately use the metal key to open...close doors...next time you take it in for service you might mention the key fob issue. They might charge you diagnostic time based on their hourly rate. There is reprogramming procedure available in your owners manual and on line...but....ithe is a little risky in that you may create other issues. Let us know you resolve this issue.
