It is possible that the receiving unit on the vehicle is not operating properly. Whether that means a broken wire, bad circuitry in the receiver, or other problems it could the case, BUT more often than not, the key/remote was exposed to some kind of magnetic or high power field, effectively remdering the unit useless. Strong magnets, electromagnetic fields or even staying to long on a department store demagnetizer could lead to these problems. Go to the dealer and be prepared to take the hit, a replacement coded key can run several hundred dollars, but unless you swapped the battery and happened to get a bad new battery, than the dealer is the only solution, I hope this brief explaination shed a little light for you in the future.

Hi abdumi0f,

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!

Hope this helps,

Lost remot control how to have a new remot control ?


If this was built into the vehicle at factory you will have to go to the dealer to get one. If it is an after market alarm you will have to look up the alarm manufacturer and contact them for a replacement.

? can i program remot control for the garage dor


Make sure you have a fresh battery in the garage remote. Drive away about a block and park. Press the two outer buttons on the IS for about 20 seconds , they will flash 10-15 seconds and then go out,erasing any old codes in the car.
Then select a button position, 1-2-or3 on the car for your garage function. Hold your garage remote to the car's button pad and depress the garage remote button and the cars button (1-2 or3)continually. The LED in the cars touch pad will flash slow, then fast then go out. Once these steps are completed the car and your hand held are syncronized...thh car has recieved the remote function. That is step 1 for all vehicles.

Now you need to return to the garage and "introduce" your car to the garage door opener's receiver. Depending on the brand there will be a "learn" button on the garage door opener. You will climb a ladder and push the learn button as per instructions in the opener manual or on the stickers on the opener motor itself, if it is a Chamberlain, Liftmaster or Craftsman....
These buttons will be pressed to erase old opener codes or program to add new devices...which is what your car is.
Each opener has its own series of functions but generally after initial set up of the ceiling unit, you will depress the learn button and hold for several seconds. Then within 30 seconds , you will depress the cars button for about 2 seconds and release, the lights will flash on the ceiling unit in the garage indicating success and the next time you press the cars button the system works.
For complete detailed instructions go to the HOMELINK web site. It covers most cars by model and openers by brand with VERY detailed instructions.
Nice car! Enjoy and post back with results
