Thats because when you replace the battery on the remote you have to reprogram the remote to your car, and the only way to do that is to take the car to the dealer and have them do it.

hope this helped.
please rate well

Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter
Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

4x4 diesel. Why can't doors be unlocked or locked?


their is a way to do it but recheck battery first sometimes the relearn process doesnt work or the fob itself is dead also if auto /remote start will need dealer to flash fob ---- 2002 santa fe and followed programming instructions and eventually was able to program the new remote. But, I did not realize I had to program my existing remote at the same time. Since, I have retried programming both remotes many times with no success--the new one works, but the old one won't. The instructions were: 1) Locate switch under dash, behind fuse box; 2) Turn ignition switch on, but don't start engine; 3) Wait 5 seconds, set memory switch to SET position; 4) Press remote LOCK button; press second remote transmitter LOCK button; 5) Set memory switch to OFF; 6) Switch ignition OFF. 7) Confirm programming by locking and unlocking vehicle.

My Ford Focus car doesn't centrally lock anymore, I have to use the key. It's not the fob battery because I changed it.


Sure you did put in a new battery? sure you did insert it correct? not the other way around? sure you did use the correct battery? like CR23 or AAA?
Sure all contacts in the battery compartment and on the battery are clean and shiny?
just a few things you could check.

Transmitter Programming
1. Close all the vehicle doors.
2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Press and hold the door unlock switch.
4. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
5. Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
7. Repeat the previous step to program up to 4 transmitters.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.
9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
If this does not work, you may need to have the dealer do it with a scan tool. Make sure you take all the remotes you want to use with the car if you have to go this route.

Battery went dead in 2007 Chevy Silverado truck. Now, remote does not work. Replaced battery in remote and it still does not work.


Make sure you have one working ignition key and all remotes for the vehicle.

1) Close all vehicle doors.
2) Insert the key into the ignition.
3) Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver’s door panel-continue to hold down until instructed to release in step 9.
4) Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.
5) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).
6) Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
7) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
8) Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
9) Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock the doors automatically.
10) Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until the door locks and unlocks. This step may take up to 30 seconds.
11) Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
12) Turn the ignition switch OFF then to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode.
