SOURCE: how do you change battery in key fob on 2002 vw golf

No problem. The key fob is two pieces. The key part and the remote. Open the key as you would to sue it. Where the key flips open you can see a small recess about where the line of the trunck switch. This is where the key separates. You can pull it off or pry it with a small screwdriver. Once separated with remote part in your hand this also splits in 2. In the same area you split the key off insert the screwdriver in this recess and the fob will open giving you access to the battery. Also can be done by hand. It is a little tight so you will have to force which is normal. No screws just clipped. Make sure the battery is positioned in the right way and that you have 3 volts when you test the battery. 2.7 volts will make the remote not work or act funny.

i had the same problem... go through the menu until you see reprogram remote. hit the check mark button and hold the lock and unlock button until the horn honks. key has to be on car not running though. You will eventually have to do it again but for some reason it will work for a while.

SOURCE: remote key fob does not unlock or lock car

It may just be a battery problem. Replace the battery of your remote fob. If it will not work, try to reposition the controller beneath the dashboard.

My 2011 Ford Taurus key fob not working properly. Keep getting "key not detected message and fob does not always unlock doors. Have changed battery recently, still not working properly...


Hey Jeff it's possible that the battery in the fob is breaking contact with the battery contacts inside try squeezing the remote tightly with one hand and press the buttons with the other if it starts working you found it you must carefully bend out the contacts to make it fit tight and from opening the fob you could have made the case loose so also try putting a small piece of foam inside to make a tighter fit is this a fob with the key in it or do you have a separate fob from the key for the pats system I'll look it up and see but your post back will help also anything that's near the receiver will throw the signal off but I think it's the battery looseness that's doing it

Changed battery and now remote doesn't work. it is on a 2005 ford freestyle


press the helpful button,there appears there is more then one type of remote, I think one has auto start and one does not.

owners manuals in the glove box and in there was the Ford Auto Start Remote booklet. For those of you who need to program a new auto start remote, you turn the ignition to the on position, push and hold the little over-ride button (mine is down on the left side kick plate near the hood release) for about 15 seconds, you will hear a chirp which means the system is ready to be programmed, just hit the lock key on your remote and the system will chirp acknowledging the remote has been programmed, continue to do this will all other remotes you have within I believe it was 20 seconds - then shut off the ignition and test your remotes. Worked perfectly for me.

Free Do It Yourself instructions from your friends at Lessco Electronics

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Key fob not working


Double check the area where your remote is not working. These new key fobs manufacturers are using still operate on RFID signals if I'm not mistaken and those signals can be interfered with by technology transmitting these same signals within 50-200 ft. It might not be your "new electronics" might be your neighbors, or the power company has their low frequency signals interfering with your signals. Do a public search on your neighborhood and find out if any new electrical work has been done to your block.

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Remotes not working. door locks works in side but not with remote. batterys ok and they are transmiting. just stop work one day.


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 :)

Just replaced the battery, now the car won't start unless I lock/unlock the doors using the key fob. How do I set it back to work the way it used to?


You most likely have an aftermarket fob and remote start unit.What is the brand on the back of your key fob?You will have to get the proper reset and registration procedures for the particular unit installed in your car to make your key work normally.
