Key Fob not working completely

I have a 2017 Jeep Compass Limited and I’ve recently been having some problems with the Key Fob. The vehicle still detects the fob because keyless entry still works and I can start the vehicle without any problems. But when I try using Remote Start, or even locking/unlocking from far away, it will not work. I literally have to be touching the fob to the vehicle for it to detect it. I put in a new battery in the fob so I know that must not be it. Could it be something with a transmitter or signal? I’m hoping this is something I could easily fix without having to take it back to the dealership. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Low fuel, doors won't lock, engine light or any fault whatsoever will disable your remote start. I have the same issue trying to start it from 25 feet away without any fault indicator. Oh yes, don't forget about faulty hood switch.
