keyless entry not detecting key FOB

Requesting your help and expertise. 2006 JGC suddenly keyless entry system unable to communicate with FOB. When I unlock the door using the key, alarm activates and sounds; I then can only shut off alarm by turning ignition key. I replaced FOB battery, re-soldered connections, checked frequency and its within normal limits. Tried disconnecting negative on battery. Took it to a locksmith and he was unable to reprogram and pair FOB to vehicle. FOB would accept program but once he would detach his computer from vehicle FOBs would no longer function. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Posting in the Wk section on the form will help you a lot. the ZJ section, where this post is, is for '93 to '98 Grand Cherokee's and is completely different.
Good luck
