Comfort Access Acting Up

My Comfort Access is not working on my Driver's side door.
Normally when I touch the handle with the fob in my pocket, the door unlocks.
It stopped a week or two ago.
Also the remote fob unlock isn't working well either.

Interestingly it works on the passenger side.
Are there independent sensors for both sides?
What do I do if one fails (which seems to be the case)?


And no, it's not the fob battery - I tried both fobs, same result, and one has a brand new battery.

I know you said it's not the battery, but did you clean the contacts when you replaced it?

Symptoms sound like a bad fob. Maybe head to a parts store. (Autozone,O'Reilys). A lot of them have battery displays that can test your fobs wireless strength.

It's both fobs though. Plus, the passenger side works fine - it's only the driver's side. Battery shouldn't affect that.

Ah. Sorry. Missed that bit. In that case, I guess you'd have to look into the sensor on the drivers door and perhaps the receiver for the fob too. Good luck.

I have the same problem, but on the passenger side. However, mine is more intermittent. Sometimes the passenger side works, sometimes it doesn't.

Doesn't the fob use RFID, which is passive, for comfort access? In that case it shouldn't matter whether your fob has a battery in it or not.
