Keyless Remote Doesn't Work

I have a 1997 Cadillac Sedan deVille and replaced the battery in the keyless remote. Now the remote doesn't work at all. I did make sure that the replacement battery was nes and that it was inserted properly, but the remote still doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

    Mine works from time to time. I think I might have a loose connection somewhere. If only I could find the remote entry receiver!

Try taking the remote apart again. Get a pencil eraser and rub on each contact, and also the battery to make sure that the contact are clean. Sometimes the contact get a film on then and a eraser will clean them.

Does the spare remote work? Have you tried to reprogram it? These remotes are very cheaply made and prone to key pad failure. To program the remote click this LINK, if that doesn't work buy anew one on eBay for cheap.
