Keyless Entry Intermittently Not Working

Shorty after I bought my 08 (about 3 months ago) which has the active anti-theft system, the remote FOB randomly would not register with the car. Sometimes it works just fine (but the range is very short) and sometimes it doesn't do anything. I changed the battery and no difference. I then thought I had a remote that was going out, so I bought two more off eBay. Programmed them all and the process went fine. But now the new remotes are having the same issues. When it works, it's fine. But sometimes it doesn't register at all. No lights, nothin. Getting to be annoying. Have any of you experienced anything like this? There is a "StarGuard" aftermarket security system that was apparently installed. It is supposed to have a chip that you remove which makes the car impossible to start. But there is no chip, and it doesn't work? I wonder if that thing is causing issues and I was gonna yank it. If you can help point me in the right direction, that would be amazing. Thanks.

Actually I did. They said they couldn't duplicate the problem. I asked what could possibly lead to this problem so I know what to maybe look out for? They didn't have an answer so I suggested possible the smart junction box... They agreed the box could cause an issue, and they were willing to sell me one without even diagnosing the problem. I guess I'll go back for a second opinion.

Buy another car? Trade it in? I've never heard of this problem before. I'm stumped.
