Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Doors do not unlock-lock with remote

2005 Chevy Malibu. The door locks do not work all the time with the remote. Sometimes they will work as long as you are standing right next to the car, but not from a distance. The battery was changed in the remote but made no difference. Another remote was tried with thew same results. The problem is in the vehicle itself.
It has been to 3 different garages and nobody could figure out the problem. I am lost as what to do next. By listening to the mechanics it can never be fixed. Seems pretty idiotic to me and I am sure it is some stupid little thing, but I do not know what.

I can't disable my anti theft device on my chevy malibu 2004 and my car will not start


This usually works.Lock the doors with the remote.Press lock twice sounding the alarm.Then press the unlock button twice.Your car should start now.If that doesnt work try this,Lock the car again with the remote once.Go over to the passenger side door and use the key to unlock the door then press in the door unlock all doors.Hopefully by now it worked.Now if none of these work your security probably malfunctioned and theres only two things that will work,One is disconnecting the battery for 5 mins then reconnecting.unlock doors.the start.If that doesnt work you'll have to take it to the dealer to get the security reset or replaced.The steps I have wrot you are the diagnostics to reset it.I hope these work for you and good luck.See ya had have a great day..
