Default Key fob died

Started her up and went to town, ran some errands and stopped for dinner, when I went to unlock the door, nothing. Worked great right up to that point. Stopped and had some batteries installed at Batteries Plus, walked outside and nothing? Has anyone else had one just die like this? I only have the one fob and key so even buying another would mean having the dealer program them for an outrageous fee, where is if I had a working fob, I could buy it and program it myself.

That happened to me with my spare fob. I couldn't seem to re-program it so I left it for months. I finally tested it over at Autozone last week and the tester registered a signal so I took another shot at reprogramming it. It finally worked on about the third try. Never did figure out what happened to cause it to stop.

What you can do is buy a used RKE module and matching key from a junk yard or eBay. Look here in the sales listing. My friend Bubba1952 can get you a set. It's located under the dash pad above the center consol. Easy to Change and no dealer.
