Change Batteries in my Remote door, (lock/unlock) and trunk opene

I changed the battery in my remote to unlock, lock and open my cars trunk. It wouldn't do anything when i changed the battery, and so i tried the reset like it says on the inside of the remote, and that didn't work either. Any suggestions, other than bringing it to a GM Dealer?

Apparently the key in the door and the keyless entry work the same electric door lock system ugh :/ wow, all I can suggest is to call the stealership and ask if there is an override for the locks, before you break a window. Can anybody else out there help this poor soul?

My remote will not work

Change the batteries. If they are ok, often the micro-switch in the remote control has detached. It may need to be soldered in place again.

The remote will not open the trunk or the doors and I can't open the trunk with the trunk release in the car.

Make sure you have good batteries in your key fob. Also, there is a trunk, lock, and unlock relay. If anyone of those are bad you can have this problem.

The remote does not disarm the alarm and unlock the doors. Trunk also will not open.

I would say that the problem is the remote. change the batteries in the remote and see if it will work then. if it still will not disarm the car then it could be a problem with the security system itself.
new batteries can be bought at your local RadioShack*,auto parts store,or a auto security intallation shop.

The doors do not open by remote control key(BMW 740il 1996 model)

Key batteries completely discharged. Key batteries not replaced within 60 seconds. Key added or replaced. DO NOT press remote control buttons during battery replacement.
Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button Fig. 1 [1]. Press lock button Fig. 1 [2] briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button [1] depressed. Release unlock button Fig. 1 [1]. Some models: LED Fig. 1 [3] flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Some models: Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously

To change batteries remove panel back of key then screws on plastic bar
Batteries are available from your local motor factor shop
