So the car still doesn't start? Hmmm..

Have you checked all of the fuses in the maxifuse relay center?

When the weather gets better, go out and check the main power fuses in the maxifuse... I have seen a few H bodies that killed 2 of the Blue ones( forget the amperage ) and left the car powerless...

I would say bad RKE or possible bad lighting relay.. You have the 93 service mnaual right.. Check the wiring for the Interior lights...

The RKE part of the module gets its power from the white connector( same connector used for the Illumination and Retained acessory ) If you unplug that you will have nothing..

I am wondering if its a bad relay or the module

Holy Moley! What'* killing those batteries? Low voltage conditions can cause things to act flukey.
