Keyless Entry crapped out

I got home from work today and it worked fine, but when I went to get something out of my truck this evening the keyless entry didn't work. I checked the battery, tried the other keyfob, and nothing. Is there something on the truck I can check into? I am going to buy a new battery for the remote, but I really don't think that is the problem. Any ideas?

I works intermittently, so I know it isn't a fuse. I hope the battery takes care of it...

Is this a problem with one door or both doors? Might not be the remote !!!
The solenoid wiring contacts can be dirty not supplying enough voltage to actuate the magnetic coil properly.... or the solenoid is sticking due to problems with the linkage....
When I purchased my truck ... the passenger door would not open, but it would lock.... Had the dealer replace the solenoid under warranty.... No more problems.....

OR 4x4
