I am assuming you are referring to the multifunction remote in the video rather than an auto remote. First remedy is fresh, quality (alkaline or better) batteries, If the problem continues, check the contact ends where the patteries go - if corrosion is present, clean the contacts with a scaper/brush/Q-tip with alcohol or whatever you have to properly do the job. An infrared remote, is a line of site remote which means the remote has to face the object that you wish to control; make sure the front of the remote and the sensor part of the unit to be controlled are clean (can use an alcohol swab). A RF remote has greater abilities/range and can work around obstacles. If the remote hase random features/commonly used keys that are difficult to operate, there is probably moisture between the "punch key" and the circuit board which entails taking the remote apart and gently cleaning the back of the rubberized key pad along with the contact areas of the circuit board - I typically use alcohol with a Q-tip. Hope this helps.

94 full size blazer keyless remote doesn't work.


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.

HI MI SECURITY SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING I CHANGED THE REMOTE CONTROL BATTERY AND STILL DOESN'T WORK COULD YOU GIVE ME SOME TIPS BEST REGARDS


If it is setting when you turn the engine off, but not turning off when you use your remote then it could be the receiver. If it doesn't set when you turn the engine off, then the first thing I would check is the fuses. It can get complicated to track back problems of this sort, because one sensor can throw everything off.

Keyless entry doesn;t work


Try replacing the battery in the remote control that goes on the keychain.

These frequently go bad and my need to be replaced.

I think you can have them replaced at a department store like Wal-Mart or an automotive parts store.
