Remote entry issues

Is anyone having problems with their remote entry key FOBS ? I have replaced the battery on mine, but I still have to hold the button for a few seconds before it will unlock the drivers door. Then I have to hit it several more times to get the pass door ( coupe ) to unlock. Seems like it locks the car ok, and the trunk and remote start work fine, it's just the slow unlocking that is the nuisance. Wonder if the transmitter in the key unit is going bad.

Thanks, Dave

I have 2 remotes, I successfully changed the battery and it worked fine, then the second one died...tried to change the they both don't work. My dealer said to replace them if it is an issue with key FOB's will be $199.00 a piece...screw that...

Annoying part is I have to use my key to open the door and the damn horn honks until I turn the iginition key...any ideas how to make that stop?

Mine did that too when my fob died.. Do not use the door lock button on the door it arms the alarm, I had to manually lock all the doors.. Then when you key your door open the alarm should not sound, you can use the unlock on the door for your passengers. Also, I got a new "used" fob for $35.00 bucks on line at one of those keyless remote stores. Then a local dealer programed it to my car for $30.00..
