If you know for sure that the transmitters are transmitting (tested on a key fob tester), and the remotes are the correct ones for your vehicle (haven't been recently replaced with a different part number), then you may need to simply re-synchronize your transmitters to the vehicle. This is different than reprogramming the transmitters, but uses the same method on the remotes.
To resynchronize, Stand within 5 feet of the car, with the remotes. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the REMOTE for about 7-10 seconds. If the transmitter was out of sync with the car, the horn will chirp to confirm it is now synchronized. If this method does not work, then the transmitters will have to be programmed to the vehicle, which requires a scan tool to do. Good luck :)

10 year old remotes go bad often, especially due to moisture retention.

Testimonial: "Thank you, yes both(2) remotes are bad. I found a testing machine at a local auto parts store, even with new batteries the remotes do not send signal."

SOURCE: Keyless remotes don't work; new batteries; back

The remote doesn't work but the lock actuators are in question as some of the locks work pushing the buttons then the ones that don't work can start to check by disconnecting the wires that work the bad ones and then see if the remote will work with the bad ones turned off. replace the bad ones then your ready to go after the remote. With your scanner connected to the vehical ( not a code reader ) put the unit in body mode and look for codes and test for the door lock system follow directions and don't skip any steps. If you don't have these tools and the experience using them hire a shop that does. Expensive mistakes can be made in the ( scanner ) world of repair and your not likly to be wealthy enought to find out. Your local auto parts store can find you a good mechanic that works in his area that they sell parts to. and they know who the good guys are.

SOURCE: 2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system

Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.

Three years and a very unhappy girlfriend who owns the truck. but she's happy now.

I replaced batteries in keyless remotes for 2002 chevrolet monte carlo ss. how do I resynchronize the keyless remotes?


Hello: To resynchronize the keyless entry close all doors, key out of ignition. Hold lock and unlock buttons till the doors (all) lock then unlock. If the transmitter still doesn't work you have other problems. Go to auto zone they can check your transmitter to see if it is working.

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.

My remotes dont work on my 2002 chevrolet 1500 hd


if batteries are good you can resync them to your vechile. It states in the manual and i'll tell you how to do it on a 99 gmc so maybe it will be the same, i don't know. Stand near your vechile with your remotes. Use one remote at a time. Press and HOLD BOTH lock and unlock buttons for 10 seconds. Should hear the doors lock and unlock. If not, this isn't the problem would need more info to figure out.

Do the locks work when using the interior lock buttons? If so, then you probably have to have the car dealer reprogram you remotes

Remote entry system on 2002 GMC truck stopped functioning. remotes are transmitting, still problem. Any suggestions


my first thought was batteries in the remotes. how do you know they are still transmitting? or if they are, if they have sufficient power to broadcast the signal that it can be picked up by the receiver? if you can access the bcm, i'd look for that data. once that is determined, then it's a matter of tracing backwards until the problem is found. personally, i prefer to start at the end (in this case the actuators in the doors) and work backwards. the most common problem in any electrical malfunction is loss of ground. power second, and failed hard parts third.

The following worked for me: get in the car and shut the door, then put the key in the ignition and turn it till all the dashboard lights come on, but don't turn it any further and start the car, then press the "Lock" button on the remote, if the doors then lock then it has reprogrammed.

Hope this works for you.
