08 JK Remote Entry / Start problem

I've had my JK for 10 months and 15,000 miles. Suddenly yesterday my key fob wont work for locking/unlocking/starting unless I'm standing right at the drivers door. I used to have a range of over 100 feet. It's the same with both remotes. I changed the battery in one remote with no change. Is there an antenna lead for the factory system I can check? Any other ideas?
