CHEVY KEYLESS ENTRY REMOTE

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

Electrical problem
2007 Chevy Tahoe V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 25400 miles

My keyless entry remote quit working for both mine and my wife's remote suddenly. I have to open the car manually then the remote works for about 10 minutes. If the car is left off for longer than that the remote doesn't work. I have replaced the battery in the remote and it didn't help. I tried the relearn menu and it didn't help either. What could be the problem?
