Key fob not working

Can anyone tell me where the receiver is for the keyless go system?

I'm away from home and my wk2 does not recognize the fob. Had a problem like this at this same spot two weeks ago. I suspect rf interference from a nearby rooftop array that is desensitizing the keyless go receiver.aybe if I can get closer to it it will work?

Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Re: Key fob not working

RFH (radio frequency hub) is the RKE receiver, monitors passive entry antennas and controls door lock operation (through bussed output signals to the door modules).
if RKE inop, use the key to enter the vehicle. if start button inop, use the FOBIK to press the start button.

Perfect. Thanks very much. Started in this manner. Evic showed key fob error for about 200 meters of travel. Then resolve once I was off site. All is ok now.

What are the operating freqs for these systems?

Thanks again.

Re: Key fob not working

glad you got it going.
AFAIK,
RKE operates at 315 MHz
locating antennas transmit at 125 KHz
RFID chip inside FOBIKs transmit > 300MHz
