More info needed...... I assume your remote won't lock/unlock the doors. But do the electric door locks work with the switches inside the car?

If it's just the remote that's not working it could be as simple as a remote battery, or it could be a bad RF receiver under the dash, not to mention a wiring problem, a fuse you haven't found yet, or any number of other problems.

I think places like Auto Zone can test the remote for operation. There's a possibility the remotes aren't programmed properly.

Good luck...

Oh...one more problem I found once. A guy bought a used car from a dealer.....remotes didn't work. Turned out the car didn't have a remote system....just electric locks. The dealer just threw in some remotes for the Hell of it I guess.

Sounds like it's a relay issue

Humm....got to start somewhere. Assuming you've checked all the fuses, the next step for me would be to check for 12V at the driver door main switch. One wire at that switch should be 12V all the time, whether or not the ign. is on. You should check the wire plugs also.

If something happens to that main switch on most cars....the whole system stops working.
