    Both my keyless fob stopped working a few months back and upon reading the wireless control module's receive is inside the ECU on my 2004 Lancer ES I tried it....when placing the keyfob within 1-2 foot away from driverside part of the hood where the ECU is it locks and unlock perfectly - unlocks the doors, hazard lights and horn all work as normal.

    What could be wrong that it will not receive the signal from a proper distance? ..and yes I changed and checked the battery inside the keyfob.
