2009 Buick Lacrosse automatic door locks, interior button and fob not working


Have you had it checked to see if DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM - body control module ? That's the first thing you should have done . Dealer or other independent reair shop that has a factory or professional type scan tool . Auto part stores can't pull these codes .
The keyless entry system has the following main components:
• The transmitters
• The body control module (BCM)
• The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)--When you press a button on the transmitter, the transmitter sends a signal to the RCDLR. The RCDLR receives the signal and sends a serial data message requesting the appropriate function from the BCM.
• Keyless Entry Antenna which is a coaxial cable that runs from the RCDLR to the back glass. It attaches with a 9 volt battery style connection to a grid on the back glass, this style antenna is used to increase range and performance for Keyless Entry and Remote Vehicle Start systems .

How do I get my key remote to lock/unlock my toyota rav4 2002 model? I changed the battery because I thought that was the problem but it is still not working. The red light on the remote comes on but then...


You will need to try reprogramming the remote 1st, below is the complete procedure. If the reprogram doesn't restore function then you will need the dealer to test the keyless entry system, you may have a bad module or remote (only applies if both remotes don't work).

Start with the key out of the ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Close the drivers door
D. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
E. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically
indicating successful entry into programming mode.
Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
Press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door
locks should lock and then unlock once indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

Automatic side door will no longer open with remote or console button in car. Also, both side door's locks will not pop up using all of our 3 remotes (1 door is automatic, 1 is manual). Lastly, the back...


Did these doors quit at the same time or over a period. It seems that the actuators for the locks have gone bad. With the mentioned doors, that's a lot weight for the actuators to unlock and pop open. With the remotes and console not working , that's more reason to think the actuators are the problem.

Automatic locks do not work except on drivers side door. whether using the remote or the automatic door lock button. when either is pressed it makes a horrible sound. what could this be?


When the door locks make a buzzing sound this means the lock actuator for that door is bad and will need to be replaced. If the locks do not work at each door and only from the drivers switch. Then either the lock-out on the drivers switch is on or the drivers switch is staying in lock-out. The other possibility could be that the lock actuator for the other door is bad.

Central Locking does not work


You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.

To reset remote you would:
1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds
2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES
3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding
4)All doors should automatically unlock

And exit the door and lock with the Remote.

Automatic door locks will not work.


you need to take it to the dealer and have them check the bcm for codes.... also have them check to be sure you have the latest software in the bcm.. its possible that you just need a software update... there are several TSB's covering the concern you have..... it can be a very simple fix with software or even a stuck lock switch may need to be replaced... without the proper diagnostic codes being read from the bcm all that can be done is guessing..and that can be expensive...
