I picked up my MY11 Forte5 EX last week from the dealer and when I picked it up the keyless entry never worked. I wanted them to fix it before I drove it home but the service bay was closed so I brought it back the next day. They ordered batteries for both the key fobs. Today I took the car in as the batteries arrived, the batteries were not the cause. After a few hours of tinkering, the technicians couldn't figure out what the cause was. I will have to bring it back next week and leave it with them for a day or so.


Can anyone suggest what the cause may be?


Techs did the following:
-replaced batteries in the remotes
-tried unsuccessfully to reprogram the remotes
-checked for blown fuses

Did they plug the "whatchamacallit" laptop into the OBD port and program each key fob? I'd think this should have been the first thing they would have tried. Between that and getting to the batteries possibly being dead should have taken about 20 minutes.
