Open the key fob and inspect the circuit board with a magnifying glass to make sure there are no cracks in the antenna trace (look for a zig-zag pattern). Also make sure the battery contacts are clean; you can polish them with a pencil eraser if necessary. If you find a crack in the circuit board, you can repair the crack with epoxy (use a toothpick to apply). Once the epoxy is set, scrape off a little bit of the green solder mask on each side of the crack, then solder a fine (no wider than the the trace) wire across the crack. When you do this, make sure you touch both battery contacts with your fingers and the tools before applying them to the circuit board. This will discharge any static electricity you may have on you so you won't zap the electronics. Do not work on a plastic surface; static charges build up very easily on these.

The anntenna for the car radio may have been connected to an aftermarket radio and when this happens thiers too strong a ground on the annetenna wire to let the signal get to the door unlocker circuits unless the fob signal is rea strong unplug the annetenna wire from the radio and see if it works like it's supposed to as baby GM don't like their cars messed with and this is one of the ways they keep you from doing it.
