Keyless entry issue

All of a sudden my keyless entry remotes are not working. The first thing I did was replace the battery in one of them. Then I did the 8 turns of the ignition to re-sync the remotes to the system and still no workie. Then I pulled and replaced the fuse under the dash. The owners manual says it's fuse #2. It's also suppose to run the overdrive switch which appears to be functioning just fine. So the circuit appears to be okay. Anyone have any ideas?

The keyless entry modules (driver's side wall behind driver's seat) used to be notorious for going bad but I haven't heard of it in vans newer than 2000 or so. I hope it's not the module because they can be really hard to get to in an SMB due to cabinets/floor plan but I think there are companies that rebuild them. I found a lot of info on this on FTE forums a few years back.

This should be a long shot but you may have a source of radio frequency interference near your van. Not sure how to test this theory without towing it to a different location. Could also look around for a roll jamming device that may be planted nearby. Other sources in your neighborhood? Navy radar perhaps? If so, that shouldn't last long.
