Sounds like you need a new battery. Unless, perhaps it was stored in a very damp place. In which case you have a short somewhere. Make sure however, that your fuses are,indeed good.

This vehicle is equipped with PAT (Passive Anti Theft). You will not be able to remedy your problem until the ECM is paired with the new ignition and key. This must be done through the dealership.

Try this check the batteries in your remotes. There are times when they get low and send signals to your car. If not you may have a bad door connection or module.

Dome light and key in ignition tone won't quit.


Yes, I would lean toward a stuck drivers door latch. Your door open switch is located in the latch itself and the ding is a reminder your key is in the ignition so you don't lock them in the vehicle when you lock the door. even though your door is shut, the truck still thinks it is open. sometimes spraying the latch with some WD-40 will get it freed up and working again, but a new latch might be in your future.

Key will not turn or open any doors


Got the right key? Is this a new buy for you? Does it work in ignition? If so then the ignition lock's been changed and you don't have the door key.
Or dead battery in fob, if you mean the remote function. (Frozen door lock barrels? Penetrating oil soak for an hour or 2)

Sorry that's all I can think of given the info provided.

drivers door is unlocked.

indicating successful entry into programming mode.

It sounds like a door ajar switch is broken. The door switches are located in the door on the latch mechanism. To get to it you will need to remove the door trim panel to gain access to the door latch.

The switch is available for around $20 - autozone part number SW1979 or SW3688

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.
