Key FOB's not woking

Just started working on my 95, and can't get the key FOB's to work. I have two FOB's with good batteries. Entered programing mode via the jumper under the dash, locks cycled to verify programing mode was initiated. Tried all three buttons on both FOB's (on different attempts), locks do not cycle to indicate that a signal was received from the FOB. Reseated the three connectors on the bottom of the remote module.

Any ideas? Is there an external antenna somewhere?

There is an antenna under the dash attached to the harness, basically a piece of coax cable.
Did the fobs come with the truck? What do they look like? If they are the ones with newer styled buttons they may not work on a OBS.

The FOB's are original. The previous owner had some issues with the FOB's not working. I reprogrammed them once but they eventually quit working again. Now that I have the truck, I thought I would try again.

Found the antenna wire, don't know how I missed it the first time. Reseated it and attempted to program. One FOB worked the other didn't, so I tried again. Now both are back to not working.

It might be an issue with the fobs themselves, they may have gotten wet, or some sort of internal damage. Sorry, I'm out of ideas.
The only way to now for sure would be to try the fobs on another truck, or try a known good fob on yours.

Thanks. Looks like this is going to be a good excuse to install another viper with remote start. Now if only I could find a way to utilize the same FOB's I have for my 2000...
