you have to resynch your remote once it looses power. the procedure is in your owner's manual. It can also be done from a scan tool but you would have to take the car to a shop. I beleive you hold the lock button and press the unlock button 5 times within 10 seconds and then put the key in the ignition but I cannot remember year for year procedures

Most likely the remote is the culprit.It sending a signal and the body control module is receiving it so that eliminates the remainder of the system.If you have two remotes then try the other one.If not, you can go to your nearest dealership and they have a remote checker.They can set the remote on it and push the buttons and it will light up if all the buttons are working on your remote.Hope this information helps,
