RKE not working

My RKE isn't working, I've replaced the battery and did the resync. It seems to work when I open the door manually then stops. Also how do you get a copy of the key made ?

    This was the remote that originally came with it. It worked for about 6 months then one day stopped altogether that is until I unlocked the door manually or just after I stopped the car and got out the RKE would work but seconds later not at all. I thought it was the batteries so I replaced them, did the reprogram as it says in the manual and I still get the same thing. Works when I get out of the car for a few seconds and that's it.

    there are real problems with the module that controls the system, read post after post like yours, all the same, just worded different, keys that work and don't work, remotes work one day and not the next, do an internet search and check all this out, but most likely you will need a new anti-theft module.

There si a service bulletin that has us replce the module, remotes, antenna, and reprogram. If the car has, say up to 40k miles or so, the dealer should take care of this under warranty, since this is a common problem, and there is a bulletin for it. It has nothing to do with the anti-theft module as a post above states. The module is called the " Remote Control Door Lock Receiver" (RCDLR)-

The driver's side door will not lock or unlock via remote control. What is the solution for this? All other doors lock/unlock when remote is used.


is it freezing there? (ice happens)
car drives perfectly day and night? (tells me battery not dead or weak)

does outside metal key work, does inside lock lever work?
if not its frozen inside.

ill assume the 2 mech, ways work and solenoid is dead.
get car serviced?
do you have tools, and skills?
yes/no?

this, its a solenoid. seen below. inside the door.

The FOB battery weak can cause this, try both fobs yet.
one door RKE receiver (hidden below) can be weaker or stronger.
and may fail if the RKE (fob) is weak. Rem.key entry=RKE
so a new battery in the fob is a now thing.
22year old FBO battery? hopeless if ever.
ok if the manual doors work ok and only a good fob fails (both)
(car came with 2 so...)
then the problems is below.
here is an example of how complex it can be. and real solutions.
93-97 location. reciever.
Just pry up the defroster grille panel and it will be on the passenger side, held in by 2 screws.
scan the PCM first. looking for RKE errors, BCM errors>?
if 12vdc does not reach the solenoid,
then the Door controller failed or the BCm fail to sen the command or the remote receiver (entry) module never sent it.
my guess is the RER is ok, as it opened other doors.
so that leaves, BCM mess up. or soldenoid bad.

here is the receiver. that is failing, if 2 fresh fobs fail.
fresh batteries.
some green PCB below are in overhead lamp module
others are in door, (sun roof?)

i think this is 1999.

My Ford Focus car doesn't centrally lock anymore, I have to use the key. It's not the fob battery because I changed it.


Sure you did put in a new battery? sure you did insert it correct? not the other way around? sure you did use the correct battery? like CR23 or AAA?
Sure all contacts in the battery compartment and on the battery are clean and shiny?
just a few things you could check.

Remotes worked great, then...The (RKE) remotes only worked sometimes. I thought the batteries where low so I replaced on both RKE remotes, then more problems. Sometimes it opens the doors, sometimes it...


Take it back to the dealer. Manufacturers have a code of practice that says that they warrant cars for three years on parts that not subject to normal wear and tear (brakes, tires etc). The problem is electrical and therefore not part of the component list subject to wear and tear. If you get no joy from the dealer take it up directly with GM. Buick have been building a reputation for reliability and quality construction so they should be keen to keep you happy on what is such a young car

Locks go crazy,alarm goes off, now the car won't start.


I've had this problem under warranty on my '05 Malibu LS. They replaced and reprogrammed the fobs. Looking in my shop manual, it seems the problem is from the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. My car started doing this two years later off warranty and now I just lock the doors from the outside with the key or by pushing the lock stem buttons by hand on each door. The security option in the DIC needs to be set to RKE for this to work though.

Start the car with the key, wait 15 seconds, then press startbutton on the remote while the car is already running, you may need to do this 2 times inorder to reprogram the remote
