Hyundai Elantra Keyless entry woes

My wife has a 2009 Hyundai Elantra and recently the keyless fobs quit working. Actually, I think they are fine and already tested the batteries, but the cars wireless receiver seems to have quit working. I have been all over the car checking fuses and looking for a receiver, but I got nothing. Any ideas?

Bring your car to an independant mechanic.They have the expertise to deal with this type of issue.

Call before you show up. Security issues may mean you need to use the dealer or a locksmith approved by your state. In Maryland, that is the law. I live in Central MD, part of the fourth largest metro area in the USA. I found one locksmith in MD approved by the state to do this. Otherwise, the dealer has to work on it.
