Default Remote keyless entry issues

Anyone had issues with thier keyless entry distance being extremely short.

One of my keys has gone down to having to be right next to the door, the other is working sporadically from 20-25 feet away, when it used to work fine.

These issues first started right after I took it in to get a bunch of TSP's done.

Occasionally I'll have to push the button extra times to get it to work, but I haven't run into too much of a problem. I am able to start mine from 100+ feet, thanks for the reminder, I need to start it now, it is cold and snowing outside.

I had a lot of problems with one of mine.. I'm not sure if its a distance thing though.. works from far away... then there's days that i'm right beside it and it wouldn't unlock and sometimes lock. The last week I went to remote start it and it wouldn't remote start. Took a look out the window and everytime I remote start, the lights would flash once.. then I jumped in and drove 3 min to the gas station, went it to get smoke and tried the remote start.. lights flashed twice and it started..

trying my other remote for a bit before I go to the dealer....

There are currently no TSB's, RRT's, or recalls out regarding this issue, but I know for a fact that some of the WIN (wireless ignition node) modules are having issues with FOBIK functions. A couple other models are having similar issues and they are having the WIN's replaced.

I dont have the remote start, just lock and unlocking of the doors, and lowering the windows in the summer. It will work from inside the house some days and others I will be standing next to the door and it wont work.

When I take it in for an oil change I will have them look at it.
