Try re-programing the system.
These are the instructions from the service manual.

. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, with the 5th time ending
in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle
to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will
cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Does sound like the battery - these cars are really sensitive to low voltages. After new battery fitted - cycle the car close + open with the fob - if this does not respond enter the car using the key and also use the key to immediately start the engine. Then check that the fob is okay - you may have a bad fob battery and its possible that the fob has lost its identity ? Hope this helps - good luck

Try it with a new remote pad, turn the key back and forth untill the locks jump up and down.. do it slowly , when they jump make sure to leave the key in the on position while pressing both lock and unlock buttons on the remote, they should then jump again telling you that the remote is now programed.

Your keyless/security system may have been damaged by the spikes. But, assuming you've already checked all the fuses, I would start by having the alternator tested. I would also check the alternator wire connection to the power distribution center (pdc). It can loosen and cause different problems.

Good Luck!
