Try replacing the battery in the transmitter. if that does not work take your remote completely apart and gently clean all the switch and battery contacts with a clean pencil eraser. if that does not work take the remote to a GM dealer and ask them to check it for you. they have a little pad shaped device which checks for a signal. if the transmitter is dead buy another on ebay and take it to a dealer and have them set it to match the car for you.

The horn used to beep when I used the key fob to lock the car. Now it doesn't. Is there a fuse thats bad or is it another issue.

If the horn works then the problem isn't with it .
Look other related things that don't work quit right minor things key on engine not running you may have gone over a bump or hit a pot hole that jarred a connection or a low battery in the keyless entery .
At any rate its a minor problem you won't get stuck on the side of the highway over it . But keep an eye on what else if anything works funny stops then starts working .
This one thing is not enough to effectively diagnosis why this is happening

I have a 1995 Thunderbird. The theft system won't let me start the car if I only have the key. I have to use my remote to unlock the doors and then start the car. Is there a way to bypass the theft system?

of course. the theft system is located under the dash on the drivers side. once you have found the theft system simple pull the fuse for it. that will disable the theft system but you wont have to worry about using your keyless entery then your key. if you do not understand the instructions i have given please call 419 689 1114 for futher assistance.
