The remote is done. Take it back to where you bought it and have them replace it! I had the same thing happen.

Did you drop it? I dropped mine and I had to buy a new one.

It is either a failure in the antenna or the remote. Just because you have a remote that says compustar on it does not mean it will work. There are different types of antenna's and different frequencies that each remote and antenna is associated to. Take it to a authorized dealer as was already mentioned. Try to program a new remote to it (for that antenna type). If it works it is the remote issue, if it is the same as before, it is a antenna issue.
