Had the same issue. This is usually the key pad itself. Like your replacing the battery on the wireless remote, tear it down to the buttons, two outer case halves, remove the battery, and then the card itself. Look at the contacts on both the rubber buttons and the card. Do you see the grime and pasty goo that has built up on the contacts? Not to worry, just get some Iso Propolyn Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) that is more than 30% but not 100% and use Q- tips to dip into the solution and clean the contacts. Don't use 100% because you are trying to break up water solubles also and anything under 100% still has water in it. Do not dip the card into the solution either. This will damage it if you dip a microchip in the solution. You may need to go get a new battery before retrying.

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

Instructions to program a keyless entry remote for a Chevy Silverado. They also work on 2003, 2004 and 2006 Suburbans.
  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
  3. Press and hold the DOOR unlock switch.
  4. While holding the DOOR lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
  5. Release the DOOR unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
  6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one keyless remote. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
  7. Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters.
  8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (one more click forward) position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter mode.
  9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation
