Rke not working properly

MY key fob will only open the drivers door. Second key fob works the same leeding me to believe it is not the key fob. I've replaced both batteries in both fobs. Any suggestions out there?

Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:

1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.

You can do it yourself.

Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.

Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.

The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.

I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.

Good luck and Rate this.

Cheers

The driver's side door will not lock or unlock via remote control. What is the solution for this? All other doors lock/unlock when remote is used.


is it freezing there? (ice happens)
car drives perfectly day and night? (tells me battery not dead or weak)

does outside metal key work, does inside lock lever work?
if not its frozen inside.

ill assume the 2 mech, ways work and solenoid is dead.
get car serviced?
do you have tools, and skills?
yes/no?

this, its a solenoid. seen below. inside the door.

The FOB battery weak can cause this, try both fobs yet.
one door RKE receiver (hidden below) can be weaker or stronger.
and may fail if the RKE (fob) is weak. Rem.key entry=RKE
so a new battery in the fob is a now thing.
22year old FBO battery? hopeless if ever.
ok if the manual doors work ok and only a good fob fails (both)
(car came with 2 so...)
then the problems is below.
here is an example of how complex it can be. and real solutions.
93-97 location. reciever.
Just pry up the defroster grille panel and it will be on the passenger side, held in by 2 screws.
scan the PCM first. looking for RKE errors, BCM errors>?
if 12vdc does not reach the solenoid,
then the Door controller failed or the BCm fail to sen the command or the remote receiver (entry) module never sent it.
my guess is the RER is ok, as it opened other doors.
so that leaves, BCM mess up. or soldenoid bad.

here is the receiver. that is failing, if 2 fresh fobs fail.
fresh batteries.
some green PCB below are in overhead lamp module
others are in door, (sun roof?)

i think this is 1999.

My Ford Focus car doesn't centrally lock anymore, I have to use the key. It's not the fob battery because I changed it.


Sure you did put in a new battery? sure you did insert it correct? not the other way around? sure you did use the correct battery? like CR23 or AAA?
Sure all contacts in the battery compartment and on the battery are clean and shiny?
just a few things you could check.

Jeep liberty 2006 power lock will lock but not unlock


there are 3 ways to lock.
key metal
on door switches
and the FOB, RKE.

so is this a fob question? key fob? only failure???????
did you know that many fob modes are PROgrammable?
the operators guide tells you how to do that.
did you try both fobs, that came with car new., if not why not?
did you replace the 8 year old fob batteries, no , why not now.?

on my 08 (for example) :
can program it to only open drivers door. or all.
and autolock feature off or on.

on my other car all was worked fine. then drives door failed
to open (all 3 fobs fail, one is new) the door solenoid was bad.
$100 part. now fixed, by me.
so do all fobs fail. if in fact this is a FOB question
RKE (called remote key entry by jeep)

i have 4 fobs for my jeep now. you must have 2 good keys.
to make a 3rd by self.
so keep 2 , never ever used. to be self sufficient.
this is not a door issue, above 3 lines, its a not getting stranded issue.

2009 jeep liberty only drivers door unlocks


you just get this car.
or it worked before but not now? key questions.

door switch driver and RKE not working right.

and some cars the driver has a master switch and local switch.
and some have a kids safe switch that kills the other doors.
i dont have the opr,guides. for liberties.

in this case , this is a programmable feature. most newer jeeps.
you can program most cars. for (only driver door works with fob)
this is for security, (like airport parking , alone, at night)
the operators guide (lost already )covers this. in the glove box.
most folks don't read it ,they just drive to jeep service and
ask to have it set like you want. and pay $100.
it could be a fault too... but that will take checking above first.
on my other car, i must click 2 times to open all doors, (GM)

the dealer will scan the PCM/BCM puters. to see if they are throwing
DTC errors. any good scan tool can do this.
and check fuses first. never last. or get egg in face.

did you read this?
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/jeep-liberty-owners-manuals/

lost it , then get it and put it on a flash stick and put it back in the glove box or burn a CD . (or kill a tree and print it)

page 21

Remote Key Unlock, Driver Door/All Doors First
This feature lets you program the system to unlock either
