    Try changing the battery.

    ----------

    If you have a 2nd fob you can test it out by putting that battery in your primary one. I wouldn't do it though because the less times you have to open and close these things the less likely they are to break. If it still doesn't work with the new battery make sure it isn't upside down.

    I have same problem. Both batteries are new as of Sept. No FOBS detected on screen, but when placed in console holder works fine. Got home everything is normal. I know that nothing fixes itself so should I 1. reprogram fobs (both showing correct driver etc after using console holder. Wait for it to happen again and replace RCDLR?

    Also make sure the fob is NOT near a cell phone when in your pocket. I've had my door not open a few times only to find out that if I separated the two the door opened just fine, the cell phone was blocking the signal.

    Re: No Fobs detected

    High RFID interference will cause an issue. Theres also a TSB on NO FOBS DETECTED issue. Ill see if I can dig that up later.
