Default Key Fobs Stopped Working

All the key fobs stopped working on my wife's 2006 GX. I didn't see an answer after a quick search. Does anyone have some ideas on what could be the problem. A big thanks in advance!

Assume you replaced the fob batteries already?

Both my batteries died in two key fobs within a week. I could understand that since they were both probably replaced at the same time and used equally. Walgreens took me for $5.5 since I needed one immediately. 5-pack from amazon on the way for $3.3

If not the key-fob batteries, check for blown fuses.

Not sure where the receiver is on the GX, but in other cars I've had it was located in the driver's door, and sometimes a wire through the door boot would break.
