I tried replacing both $5 bats and still nothing. Just a quick update.

Update:  I got in touch with the installation manager at the Bridgewater Best Buy and he is going to completely replace my 5701 unit and install the 5701v (which is the version that Viper came out with to replace the 5701).  He said the 2-way remote is extremely sensitive and if you drop the remote once, you're screwed.  We're gonna be really careful with the remote this time...not even keep it on the keychain with our other keys, but I really think the 5701 system in general was a piece of crap.  I'm very happy that they're replacing the entire system now.  Thank you to Mike at Best Buy Bridgewater!

There is nothing wrong with the remotes. It is the brain, and the point of the resistor was not to fix the antenna cable, it was to make up for the lock detection circuit that the older brains faulted on. Glad to see you got it all taken care of.

Could you elaborate a little more? I'm having the same issue, and this case I need to do it by myself.. what's wrong with 'lock detection circuit'?
Thanks,
