Should I need to re-program my keyless entry remote after changing the battery (for a 2005 malibu maxx)? I knew it would need changing for awhile but now with the new battery it doesn't work... And also, if that's true is it also true that I'll have to take it to a dealership and plunk down like $40 for them to do it?
Take the postive battery cable off then put it back on then turn your car over three times not start it but just turn it on off on off on off that should reset it. thats what they did to mine at the dealers and it cost me 120.00 bucks
