Question about 2005 Suzuki Swift

Key remote battery replacement

Hello. I changed the batteries in two original remotes that came with my 2005 Jeep Laredo, and now neither remote functions reliably. Both remotes have successfully locked the car doors since the battery change, but it only happened one time in each case. For the most part, the buttons no longer work at all.

Make sure that you have the Batteries Installed Correctly. If these Remotes take the Flat Round Batteries, Look and see if it tells you inside the Remote which way to Put the + On the Battery. Most of them have the + at the Top during Install. If it takes the Small Regular Battery, Looks like a Smaller AAA. You will need to Push the Connectors in a Bit Before you Install the Battery to make Sure that It connects with Both ends. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

MY 96 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO, RUNS FINE, BUT THE COURTESY LIGHTS EITHER CLICK OFF AND ON OR JUST STAY ON. ALSO , WHEN I DRIVE, THE LOCKS CLICK FROM LOCKED TO UNLOCKED ALMOST CONTINUOSLY.. MY ALARM


The problem is the remote. What I think is happening.... is that the battery in the remote controls all those same functions that you are now manually controlling with your key. The reason the alarm works without the remote is that it is powered by the actvation of the power locks. Go put battery in your remote and I would just about guarantee you that everything will work the way it is supposed to... I wish you good luck. and God Bless\

I have a 2005 JGC 5.7 hemi and sometimes remotes wont work only when you want to unlock it.If you use the key to open door alarm sounds. what could be the problem?


Have you tried a new battery in the remote, or do you have a second remote you can test. Either your remote is worn out or the battery is dead.
Once you lock the car with your remote it will active the alarm and if you use your key it won't deactive the alarm only your remote will, on some cars putting the key in the ignition will deactive it.
If you can deactive your alarm with your remote and can just manualy lock and unlock your doors and that should prevent your alarm from going off until you get a new remote or battery.

Can I replace the battery in the key fob for my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


Yes you can. On the back of the remote there will be a tiny screw remove that and pop it open and take the old battery out. Some remotes just pop open and dont have a screw. Most take a round flat battery and you can get them at any store.

My keyless entry stopped working on my 2005 Jeep Liberty. Replaced the battery on the key and tried my backup key nothing happens.


YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED TO HAVE THE REMOTES REPROGRAMED TO YOUR JEEP IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY LOST THEIR PROGRAM,LOTS OF THINGS CAN CAUSR THAT TO HAPPEN ,LIKE HAVING THEM TO CLOSE TO A MAGNET LIKE LAYING YOUR KEYS ON THE HOME STEREO SPEAKER,OR CLOCK RADIO,DROPPING THEM SEVERAL TIMES, ETC,& ITS POSSIBLE THEY WILL NEED TO BE REDONE AFTER THE BATTERY REPLACEMENT.

1994 Jeep Cheerokee Laredo: The remote keyless


If it is a factory alarm you can't unhook it. Replace the switch attached to the lock cylinder inside the door. In the meantime, the switch on the passenger door may still be good. Cycle the key in the passenger door to see if it turns off the alarm.

2005 Larado remote key does not work even w/ battery change


turn the back of the remote over and take the back piece off. On the backside, you will find that it has a circular battery on the back. Gently, with a small sharp object, take the battery out and go to a nearest wal mart or store that sales the battery. The battery should come in a individual pack or sold as two. Once you have peurchased the small battery, gently and carefuly reinstall the battery and carefully put the lid back on the backside of the remote. DO NOT TOUCH THE GREENPART OF THE CAR REMOTE WHEN INSTALLING THE BATTERY. This could damage the microchip inside the remote, causing the frequency to not be disrtibuted when unlocking on locking the car. If this does not work, go to your nearest jeep dealer and ask for it to be replaced. Give the service representative the vin(vehicle identification number)number when requesting this, beacause this tells the dealer everything about your particular jeep. If that doesnt work, then the reciver in the jeep that recives the signal needs to be repalced.
