    Can't unlock my car using the key? Changed battery in the key and now can not get into the car. What can I do?

    Are you saying just the keyless entry (with the buttons on the key) will not remotely open the doors? Can you insert the key in the lock on the door and manually open the door? There is a procedure to "program" the remote/key but you have to be inside the vehicle with all doors close. I'll be happy to tell you the procedure if you're talking about the keyless/remote entry. You can reply here or feel free to email me directly at Wish I could be more help but need further information in order to help you.

    Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help

    Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
