I have a 2007 Chevy Impala LS. I recently have been having problems with the keyless entry. The remote will not work when I want to unlock the car. After I use the key to get in the car the and physically open the door the remote will work. When I shut the door and get out of the car I am able to use the remote. After a couple of minutes the remote will not work. I have tried two different remotes and I have the same problem. Any help would be great.
Do you
have the same problem?

Replace the remote control door lock reciever, Some customers may comment about one or more of the following conditions:

" The remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitters will not program, function and/or the RKE transmitter low battery message is displayed.

" The Service Tire Monitor System message is displayed.

" The new RKE transmitter cannot be programmed.

" The remote keyless entry (RKE) and/or remote vehicle start (RVS) transmitter has poor range.

Cause
Any of these concerns may be caused by an internal fault with the transmitters and/or the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) software/hardware. Replace the RCDLR module and the RCDLR antenna. Reprogram the RCDLR with the latest software update. You will get 2 new remotes also. Post back with what you find.

My dealership wanted over $900 to replace and reprogram the RCDLR module and two new keyfobs. Does this sound anywhere near reasonable?
