Re: My security remote dose not work
Hello, It seems as is if you have a remote that will not lock the doors all the time. There can be a couple of reasons that it wont work at times.1 it may have a weak battery,2 there may be some kind of residue inside the key fob itself such as tea,coke,water, or even sweat. This will short the fob out at times.Thank you

It may seam extremely complex this problem however its likely vary simple.What you need to do is fine out what works and what dose not . Dose the keyless work on other doors the battery is G or NG. You also mention the remote starter stopped working and D and P position no longer works correctly with the controls /switches in the drivers side door only' not the other doors ..
The control panel for the locks and window switches are on the arm rest drivers door it tends to get wet rain snow window open over time bad connections /switch contact and that is the point you need to look at first . Get some electrical contact cleaner spray into the switches not to much spillage use a tube or it may damage trim materials .
Then use the controls back and forth if you see any improvement of function starts /then stops any change you found the problem .Its in the door.
There is 3 relays in one of the fuse panels that are labeled doorlocks one of them is probably bad. Push the door lock button and find the one that is clicking this is the one that is back. This should fix your problem
Firstly, open your glove box and make sure Valet Mode is not enabled, if it is not, follow these steps.
Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open. Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s 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 driver’s 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 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors. Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. 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. You're done!
check to see if your "interior cabin lights" fuse isnt blown it is a 15amp fuse one of the top two rows in your fuse box. i have a 2002 A4 avant and when that fuse blows my security beep doesnt make any sound but the doors lock.
Probably the door actuator - a part inside the door that activates the lock, particularly if neither the interior lock switch or the remote do not lock the door. Once the doors lock the horn will beep again - the lack of beep indicates the vehicle is not secure.
