remote lock/unlock works Intermittently
I had the windshield replaced about a month ago by a shop that I trust and they have done many windshield for me, all with no problems. Right before I had the windshield replaced, I replaced the batteries in both remotes, but since having the windshield replace the Lock/Unlock works Intermittently. Sometimes it will work from 15ft away and sometimes only when I am right next to the car. Since this has happened, I have again replaced the batteries in the remotes and no change.
Since there are times it works great and other times it doesn't, it makes me think that a wire has been damage and it losing its connection.
But I don't know how this works,
1) does the windshield have an antenna in it for this purpose? There are multiple lines running through the glass. the shop has already said they will replace the glass if needed at no charge.
2) if the antenna is in the glass, then is the connection damage or not hooked up solid
3) is the receiver antenna for this in the "A" pillars and maybe damaged from the windshield replacement?
Any information or wire diagrams would be greatly appreciate.
