Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks.

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.

it splits apart to expose the battery (usually a 2032 watch battery)

My keyless entry to my 2007 E63 Mercedes. Pull the drivers handle and the doors unlock then lock again. Third try and the windows come down halfway. Passengers door no problem and can open that without...


If the remote batteries are low the car will tell you on the information center by the speedometer. The door handle on the keyless entry is malfunctioning. You must replace the door handle. It usually cost around $160 plus shipping cost. Sometimes the contacts within the keyless entry become corroded or broke. Nevertheless, you need to replace it or have someone replace it. There is one screw behind the weather scrip that holds it in place. You will need a torex wrench to remove it.

1996 tl keyless entry


Do you have a keyless entry FOB. If you do replace the battery then program the system. Unlock the doors turn the ignition key to the "ON" position then press either the lock or unlock button of the FOB turn the ignition key off.Now turn the ignition key on again and press either button on the FOB. Turn the ignition off again. Do this 3 times. This initiates programming for the power door locks. Press the lock button of each remote one at a time to be stored in memory. this must be done within 10 seconds of each remote.
3 remotes max. Turn the ignition off and remove the key to complete programming procedure. then test each remote.

How to change battery on keyless entry


There should be a small screw on the remote if not just pry it open. it will snap back together.

You should be able to split the remote in half. You can usually use a small flat blade screw driver to do this. You should a line all the way around the outside of the remote. Gently pry it open and replace the battery.

When you can see the CODE BAT, select your new battery HERE.

I hope helped (remember rated this help). Good luck.

Remote keyless intermittent function


I had the same problem. If your car is still under warranty, simply go to the dealer and have the keyless entry remotes replaced. If your car is not under warranty and you do not want to fork over the hefty fee for new remotes, you should be able to repair them yourself.

If you open your keyless remotes, you will likely find that the contacts which hold the battery in place have come unsoldered. Basically, the problem lies in the fact that Daimler/Chrysler used a cold soldering method when adhering the battery contact to the circuit board in some of these remotes. Under normal wear, these cold soldered contacts will eventually bust loose.

In order to repair the remote(s), you will need a soldering iron and solder.

1)Remove the screw from the back of the remote. Pry apart the two halves of the remote using a dime or penny.

2)Remove the circuit board, placing it battery side up. Remove the battery.

3)Carefully place the battery holders contact pins back into their respective holes.

4)Take care to put a small amount of solder on each of the loose contact pins. Put a small bead in both the back and front of each contact pin.

5)Replace the battery and put the circuit board back into the remote. Test to make sure the remote is functioning properly, then snap the back of the remote on and replace the screw.


Don't thank me, credit for how to repair this issue goes to 'Sodapop' from custommagnums.com.

How do i program remote keyless entry? I replaced the battery and keyless entry quit working,


You don't normally program a keyless entry, that's done for you by the technicians that install that. If the replaced battery doesn't solve the problem, take the battery and the remote to the techies that installed it.

Keyless Entry Key Doesn't Work


Regarding the remote transmitter issue: Take the remote transmitter to your Toyota dealer. Ask them to test your transmitter with their hand-held RF detector. All Toyota dealers are required to have one of these devices. The RF detector will test the remote to see if it is indeed transmitting the proper RF out of the transmitter, and the strength of the RF signal. If there is no signal, the remote has failed (unfortunatly common), and the remote will need to be replaced and reprogrammed to the vehicle. I do this quite regularly, and rarely do I tell customers taht they need to spend 800 dollars for such a simple diagnosis/fix. The keyless system is very reliable. I rarely change the ECU for the keyless, unless somebody somehow gets the ECU wet, then it def needs replaced. Hope this helps.
