Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla

Corolla LE remote not working

Just bought a 2009 corolla LE sedan (second hand). The remote was working for the first week. But it now stops working. It doesn't lock/unlock the doors (keyless not working, key itself still opens the door, of course...), nor does it start the car. Wondering what's the reason. The red light on the key still flashes when I push the buttons. So I figure it's not the battery's problem. Since it can't ignite the engine, I assume it's not the receiver that's broken either. Am I wrong on any of these conclusions? If it's not a battery or receiver issue, what could possibly be wrong with the key? If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to tell me too.

Replace the battery. The light just means there is enough charge to light the LED.

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota Corolla LE 4 door rear axle noise I believe

First thing I would do is to get a chassis lube job. Many places that do oil changes will also do a chassis lube for you at the same time. The axle bearings can get dry and do require lubrication. If left to long without a lube job, pits can form inside the bearing and will require replacement.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla and electronic key

I am having the SAME problem with my 99 Corolla, Still searching for a way to disable the factory security system, for the last two years I have the vehicle hotwired through the headlights to start it. (1 wire to battery positive, 1 wire to starter hot lead, touch them together.) unfortunately this has proven very dangerous as the vehicle will start even in gear, and take off without a driver. additionally, because the alarm is going off continuously, the battery dies if not disconnected after every use. I found the fuse in the relay box that disbles the alarm, and the car starts fine, unfortunately, It it also the fuse for the alternator, so that solution will not work either. If anyone has found true way to disable the system, PLEASE offer your suggestions!

SOURCE: In my 2005 Corolla, the "door open" light is

look around the car on each door, you will see a small black switch on which the door shuts on. This switch when open brings on the light and bell. Go around and check by pushing each one of these in. This should stop the light/chime. It works on what is called an open circuit, if you check each of the sensors and the problem persists, then one of the sensors may be faulty or their is a broken wire somewhere in the circuit. For the mean time to stop your battery going flat, remove the interior light globe.

I bought a used 2003 Corolla LE, and it did not come with a keyless remote. Does it have that feature installed? If it has one, how do I get a remote that works? Thanks!

some do and some dont.... you would need to go to toyota and have them run the VIN. If the car was equiped you can get one and have the dealer flash the computer.

2009 Corolla steering problem

I had this "problem" but there wasn't anything wrong with the car - it was just my driving...
The steering is just sensitive and "sporty" - try driving with a much lighter hand - even one hand, lower on the wheel. I now find the steering great and its actually very responsive.
It took 3 visits to Toyota before someone finally explained this to me but it works. People kept explaining that it "drives like a Corolla" but couldn't tell me how to drive it better.
Mind you the car is still horrible on windy days but I don't have same issues in normal highway driving.
A year ago I was actually renting cars for road trips instead of driving my 09 Corolla S I was that freaked out about the steering but I'm now completely comfortable driving the car. I do have to warn everyone that drives my car on the highway though...they never believe me at first but always concede that I'm right and that a light hand makes a huge difference.
