I quote from your question: "will lose power to the radio and the remote door lock system will not work. will stay this way several days and then reset. several days later the radio and remote door locks will"

Sure among the many things causing this you can have a problem with the rke module, but same problem can be caused by an ECU fault, or a wiring problem.

If it is a wiring problem, the problem may get better or worse in time because of vibrations.

All teh wirings must be inspected, starting from the remote keyless entry control mode up to the ECU (main computer module), apssing through fuse box.

If wiring is OK, then you need to scan the ECU with a code reader, this will tell you if you need to replace the rke or the problem is elsewere.

All the operations above can be done at any qualified garage.

You are having a problem with the rke module. this stands for remote keyless entry.The radio also runs thru this so if it is losing power either thru a input wire having open circuit or internal failure. most likely it is a bad module

24,
Try locking/unlocking the passenger door with the key into the door lock to reset the alarm system. If the passenger side doesn't work, then try the driver side. Good luck.

My car alarm will not reset and the issue with problems below


If you (hopefully) have the key fob (keyless entry remote), try closing the doors, then lock and unlock using the keyless entry. This should reset the security so the vehicle will start.

Power door locks don't work with remote or manul


Look for fuse or relay problem. A bad (shorted) door lock switch can also cause trouble. Need to dig in and start looking at each component one at a time.

good luck
