How do I replace the RKEM (Remote Keyless Entry System) in my 1999 Honda Civic? My driver door lock won't work off the remote (I did try replacing the battery), and I can't think what else the problem might be. I know the remote is still good.
I know the RKEM is located behind the radio, but that's all I know.

First thing is to try passenger door (that still has key lock for '03,
doesn't it?) Or the rear hatch. I'll bet it won't work there, either,
unless battery is disconnected. My guess is that the remote locking is
staying at "lock" - which is why it works with battery disconnected.
I haven't heard of anything just like your problem, but there have been
many who have to replace the RKEM (Remote Keyless Entry Module) - it's
behind the radio. Usually the doors start to lock & unlock by
To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:
1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock. 2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A. 3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum). 4. Turn key off. 5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock. 6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.
The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
it would be quit a job to set your car up with a keyless remote.unless you found some one very very very good whit wire.but to tell you the truth i do not thik it hwate of time . it would cst a hole lot of money .hope i help you
1. Turn Key to on position. 2. Push and hold **valet button on the stock radio. **Valet button is skinny bar located between am/fm & cd/tape buttons on stock radio.
Door locks will cycle one time. 3. Press any button on remote one time within 20 seconds. Door locks will cycle again. 4. To program up to 4 additional remotes repeat step 3 for each additonal remote. 5. Turn key off programming is complete.
