Procedure
1. Switch Ignition ON and leave the key in the ignition.

2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the Drivers door using a second
key.

3. Using the remote control press the Unlock button once, and the horn
will sound once.

4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the coding

Did you already re-sync?
"After you change the battery, be sure to put the key in the ignition and start the car so it will re-sync."
"You sync it with the key in the ignition turned to 'ON' and press the UNLOCK button 7-10 times."

This suggests removing key with gear lever in Reverse:

Keyless remote will not respond to my 2004 ford expedition


try replacing the battery in it first. If that doesn't work and you have another key fob that is working correctly, cycle the key from off to key on engine off 8 times till you hear the doors lock and unlock. Then press a button on the key fob that works and then the one that does and cycle the key off and it should be re-programmed. If this doesn't work you may need to replace the key fob.

Nissan 2004 key fob not working


Have you tried replacing the rubber pad buttons? We had the same problem. The remote quit working and we changed the battery and it still didn't work. I was actually online looking for a replacement and came across something about the the rubber pad buttons. We ordered a replacement for $9.95, it came two days later and was a cinch to change out. The remote has been fine, ever since.

Remote control has stopped working. Have tried changing the battery of the remote control but that did not work.


Does the red light on the remote light up when you push any of the button
if no, replace remote
if yes, then try repograming the remote to the car again.
-Have remotes' ready. if you have two then fob#1 and fob#2 (doesn't matter which one is #1 or #2)
-each step has to be done within 5 sec or it will not work, but don't do it super fast.
1.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
2.turn key off
3.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting)and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release

6turn key off
7.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 twice (if you only have one fob, then stop here and go to step 8)and push the "lock button" on fob#2 twice.

Will not unlock with key fob, have replaced batteries


this usually happens when the battery has been disconnected from the vehicle, what happens is when the battery is disconnected the locking system fitted to the car has a pass-code that only the key-fob can access, as a result of the battery being removed the pass-code for the locking system on the car resets and does not recognise the fob being used. Your best chance to get this sorted is to take it into your local garage/dealer and get the fob linked back up to the cars locking system.

Need to change the hand-set remote battery


To replace the battery:
1. Press the button to flip out the key.
2. Turn the key fob so the metal key stick out to the right and the channel that the key fits into is facing you. (The VW logo on the fob will be facing up)
3. Look closely inside the channel. It is split vertically. On the left hand side of the vertical split, it is also split horizontally.
4. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the horizontal split and twist. They key fob will come apart, revealing the battery.
5. The replacement battery is a 3 volt CR2032 'button cell' and is commonly available.
6. Replace the battery with the + side facing down.

The battery in my VW key fob is dead, now I cant start the engine


No. VW has made it nearly impossible to solve any key-related problems without a costly visit to the dealership. Battery must be replaced, and I assure you. the dealership will advise you that the ONLY place that you can find that particular battery is from the dealership. They like it that way.
