Have the same problems as you however I had AM working and not FM. Replaced the amplifier in the trunk lid and the module over the left rear tire without any luck. I do know the smd caps in the old modules had degraded over time but never tested them with new caps. There's a way to reprogram your keys floating around in every forum but that hasn't helped me.

Your Amplifier needs to be replaced. If you open it up, you'll see corrosion everywhere inside. Not repairable.

Let me know if your driver side door lock actuator starts to go out. I just replaced mine and still can't unlock it using the central lock. Key fob only helps to unlock the door and start the car.

To clarify, I replaced the antenna amplifier, which may have had degraded capacitors. I got a reading of 89uf and 70uf on the 100uf 25v caps.

The audio amplifier under the tire is what develops corrosion.
