It is a factory part... Look on EBAY they are there all the time..

The dealer will have to program it once you get it...

Before you buy a new one.. Put a new battery in it and walk up to the drivers side .. Point that switch at the dome light. and try again...

Mine only worked at very close ranges.. Like when I was almost touching the window with the remote.. Mr. Green

I have my old one here its yours if you want it..

The stock keyless entry remotes are CRAP. I've gone through two of them already. The contact under the 'unlock' button wears out if you use it alot. And even when it -IS- working, you have to hold it up almost against the Windows because it used Infared instead of RF like most other keyless systems.

no I guess you can replace it with a new 1 if you install a car starter with the door lock feature with a 2 button remote. it will cost about $150.00 installed but with mine i just wanted the stock remote as mine is shot and no longer works the button is worn out.I am still looking for a stock remote if somone has 1 to spare.

Buy an aftermarket one. I bought a replacement stock one off of ebay, and it broke within a couple weeks.

A new one is about $150 from a dealership, an aftermarket one is about $60, and will probably last longer and work better.

I have been in touch with swampboy and he is having some bad luck as you are all aware im sure.He has not got back to me since the hurricane that has caused alot of damage.I dont know if he still has the remote or even his home for that matter .I have posted this add in june and still have not got 1.YES he did say that I could have his that he does not use but did not receive it even before the hurricane and do not think I will get it now unless he finds it or even still has it! Therefore I am still looking for a second hand 1 or a spare as 60 bucks for just a remote is retarded to me.Thats why I said I would buy the whole remote starter with keyless entry for that price and pay the extra at least I would have the remote start as well.I just dont use the remote start like I do the locks.
