You're going to need some high tech equipment to diagnose this problem. There is an antenna module under the dash pad that could have failed but you are going to need dealer level equipment to find out. I seriously doubt that 2 transmitters failed at the same time so they are unlikely the issue.

The Body control module plays a big part in this system also. If there is an issue there it could get pretty expensive as the transmitters cannot be programmed a second time and would have to be replaced along with whichever component failed.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
