Default Fob range only 2ft

Both my fobs used to have a 150ft range, a range longer than any car I owned. My VCM got water damaged and was replaced by Fisker (100% under warranty)this week. Now both Fobs have a 2ft range and I replaced with a new battery even. Sometimes the range is so bad if the fob is on the passenger seat the car does not detect the fob.

Re flash won't make a difference more than likely they forgot to plug the coax cable in .But I did a VCM a couple weeks a go that had the same problem but even worst you had to hold the key fob on the kick panel for the car to start. I had to replace the VCM .

Is this something I can plug in? It's a big hassle to drive to service. Last time I had it towed it was a $1300 tow bill. At least I can drive now but it still takes me 4 hours and a ferry. I tie it in with work, but I usually don't take that car when I go into the main city.
