How do I locate the remote entry module on a 2000 Suzuki Esteem?

I had a keyless entry remote a few years ago, it broke. Recently I bought a new remote and am trying to reprogram it, however I can't find the module under the dash to start reprogramming.

SOURCE: How do I program my new Suzuki keyless entry remote to work with our new SUV?

I bought a remote the other day and got these instructions with it. They worked!

1. Make sure vehicle is in Park
2. Press Vehicle Information button (has the icon of a car and an 'i')until 'PRESS *check mark* TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY' displays.
3. Press set/reset button. The message 'REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE' will display.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for about 15 seconds. A beep will sound indicating that the transmitter is matched.
5. To match additional transmitters at this time, repeat Step 3. Each vehicle can have a maximum of four transmitters matched to it.
6. To exit the program mode, you must cycle the key to LOCK.

SOURCE: keyless remote does not work after replacing batteries

I had the same problem and located the addendum to the owners manual. It's kind of overcomplicated it seems. Here is what it says:
1) Confirm all doors are closed and the key is out of the ignition.
2) Open the driver's door and put the key in the ignition within 10 seconds.
3) Remove the key within 10 seconds.
4) Push and release the driver's door switch 3 times within 20 seconds.
5) Insert the ingition key within 10 seconds.
6) remove the ignition key within 10 seconds
7) press and hold both "lock" and "unlock" on the transmitter for more than 5 seconds within 20 seconds of removing the key All doors will lock/unlock to confirm the process has been properly done.
8) Press "lock" or "unlock" on the transmitter within 5 seconds of completing step 7. All the doors will lock/unlock to confirm that the process was properly done.
At this point the transmitter has been properly programmed.

Of course, this didn't help me. My transmitter still does not work. I did confirm the procedure with a known good transmitter, so it is valid. If the lock/unlock does not happen in step 7, you more than likely have a bad transmitter.

2008 HHR Remote Starter not working


Is this an issue with all 2008 HHR remotes??? Highly doubtful , probably the vehicles keyless entry system . Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having the keyless entry system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Do you know what a DTC is ?
The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors, or release the rear compartment lid when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Remote rear doors (Panel only)
• Vehicle locator/panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR
• BCM

Guessing will not fix this .

Key wont unlock door suzuki grand vitara


Not a car expert but have some common sense advice---is it possible the vehicle was re-keyed before you got it? Someone may have lost the original keys and resorted to just using the other feature---a year is a long time not to know about this---I should not talk as recently got a vehicle where owner said rear window would not open for last two years=that vehicle has child safety locks on rear doors that also disable windows--needless to say nothing wrong.

I would talk to Suzuki if the key box is a factory installed item to see if it has a way of locking the physical keys out.

Worth asking---if after market item it may have been installed in a way that causes this issue.

In my 06' suzuki forenza is there a chip in my key?


If the keys you got are basic Suzuki keys, then NO, you don't have keyless entry. The Forenza/Reno remote is built into the key itself, so you'd know right away if you had it or not.
certain trim packages came with Keyless and some didn't.
Suzuki doesn't filter their catalog by VIN as other makes do so a VIN won't help. If not keyless you'll need the module.

I have a 96 ford conversion van with a 600 plus addon keyless system and need to program new keyless remots , need to know how to get system in program mode.


Hi.

To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:

1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock.
2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A.
3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
4. Turn key off.
5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock.
6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.


I hope this helps you.

Thanks!

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).
