I am having trouble with my door opening / security start remote. I can not start my car properly because the remote control will not work, I have renewed the butteries and still having the same problem (Dont think it is the remote as I have 2 and both have the same problen) I can unlock the doors with the key but cannot deactivate the security warning on the dashboard, the car will start but cuts out after 10 - 15 seconds. Does anybody have any ideas or can the security cut out be deactivated to get me back on the road - Thank You

Do any doors lock/unlock with remote keyless entry ?
The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
Remote transmitter battery.
Remote transmitter programming.
High power devices.
TV/radio transmission towers.
Vehicle security module.
Go To Pinpoint Test C .
Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
If DTCs are retrieved that are not found in the following Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index, refer to the Master Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in Section 418-00 .
If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
