My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.

Try holding the lock and unlock down on the key fob standing next to the vehicle for about 15 seconds and see if they relearn and work then.If this does not work then you will need to have the key fobs reprogrammed with a scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicle.MOst shops or a dealer will charge anywhere from a half hour to an hours labor to do this programming.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
