Check the relays for the power unlock. They are in one of the fuse panels. Push the door unlock button and find the relay that is clicking. This should fix your problem

My 2004 Town and country van had to be jump started and now key fob won't lock or unlock doors.Took key fob to locksmith he said key fob was working, van was not reading signal and he didn't know what

The fob may need to be reprommed to the car. Do the following:

Grab your working remote. Push the LOCK button five times, allowing exactly two seconds to pass between each press of the LOCK button. Insert the ignition key and turn it to RUN. Push and hold UNLOCK on the working remote for 6 seconds. Push and hold PANIC for one second while continuing to hold UNLOCK. Release both buttons at the same time.
Push any button on the remote to program it. Then push any button on the remote that was already programmed. It has to be reprogrammed. The remote is now programmed to the vehicle. Turn the key to OFF.

    08 dodge ram key FOB reprogramming

    ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.

    Click here to find a Locksmith in your area to program this remote.
    1. Enter your vehicle and close all doors.

    2. Fasten your seat belt ( fastening the seat belt will cancel any chiming that may
    confuse you during this programming procedure.)

    3. Place key into the ignition.

    4. Turn the ignition to the ON position ( DO NOT START THE ENGINE )

    5. Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a working remote.

    6. Continue to hold the UNLOCK button, wait at least 4 seconds, but no longer than
    10 seconds, then press and hold PANIC button.

    7. When a single chime is heard, release both buttons. The chime indicates the system
    is in program mode.

    8. Press and release both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, simultaneoulsly on the remote
    to be programmed.

    9. A single chime will be heard. The chime indicates the the remote was recognized.

    10. Within 4 seconds of hearing the chime, press and release any button on the remote
    being programmed.

    11. A single chime will be heard The chime indicates the remote has been programmed.

    12. Repeat steps 8 to 11 for a total of 4 remotes.

    13. Turn the ignition to the OFF position or wait 60 seconds to exit program mode.

    How do I program an additional remote for my 2003 Durango

    • You must have a programmed FOB to program another at home with my instructions below. If you don't have programmed one then you must get the first one programmed at the dealer.

    1. Press LOCK button 5 times at 2 second intervals to re-synchronize remote.
    2. Insert key into the ignition switch.
    3. Turn ignition to the run (no start.)
    4. Wait for ignition chimes to stop.
    5. Using the working remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote for 4 to 10
    6. seconds.
    7. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and then press the PANIC button ( on the programmed remote ) for 1 second and release both buttons. A chime will sound to indicate that the remote programming mode has been entered ( allow 3 seconds for chime to sound ).
    8. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously then press and release just the UNLOCK button on the same remote.
    9. A chime will sound indicating the remote has been programmed. Press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously and then press the UNLOCK button on each new remote you wish to program at this time. Locks will cycle after each additional remote is programmed.
    10. Turn the ignition OFF and remove key.
    11. Try your remote.
    • Hope this helps.

    I have a 1999 E320 Mercedes and one of my key fobs stopped working so I replaced the batteries in it and when I prees the button now the red lite indicator comes on but nothing happens? My spare one is...

    IT WORKED!!!! The manual on my 99 ML430 to "Resynching Remote Key" was just written weird.

    It says "Turn the key in the ignition to 2nd position then back to 0. Press and hold the lock key for 15 seconds... now press the unlock key 5 times"... which I held down the lock button for 15 seconds, released it, then pressed the unlock key 5 times. NOTHING!

    The newer manuals say press and hold the lock key and press the unlock key 5 times (with the lock key still held down).

    So... it worked. Hope this helps!

    Neither of our remotes would unlock our doors on our 2003 Silverado Z71 the other day. So we tried by unlocking it with the key. That did'nt work either. Finally, we put the key in the lock and waited for...

    TRY Relearning the remotes. to do this get in vehicle with doors closed hold the unlock button down on drivers door while you cut key on and off two or three times you should hear locks cycle and horn chirp. let go of unlock button and hold both lock and unlock button down on one key fob for 15 seconds or so you will see locks cycle move to next remote and do same. then cut key on to exit learn mode. as far as door not unlocking with key this is a problem with lock cylinder most likely.
