SOURCE: Key remote battery replacement

Make sure that you have the Batteries Installed Correctly. If these Remotes take the Flat Round Batteries, Look and see if it tells you inside the Remote which way to Put the + On the Battery. Most of them have the + at the Top during Install. If it takes the Small Regular Battery, Looks like a Smaller AAA. You will need to Push the Connectors in a Bit Before you Install the Battery to make Sure that It connects with Both ends. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

SOURCE: programming keyless remote


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

Good Luck.

Avital is one brand of remote starter that features easy-to-use keyless remotes. These remotes can be programmed wirelessly to your engine and then added to your keychain. Once programmed, you will be able to use the remote from as far as a couple hundred feet away in your house, the street or a parking lot. If your remote is not working, you can troubleshoot the remote and get it resynced in seconds.

    The remote key chain transmitter stopped working all of a sudden, replaced battery still won't work.

    I believe with the remotes on your vehicle needs to be reset to vehicle. You will need all remotes and in the owners manual it will tell you how many times you need to turn the ignition to the on/off position and then you will hit a button on the remote and it syncs them up again. It will probably be something like turn the key to the on position then turn off like 3 times then leave in on position then press a button on the remote, the dash lights will flash to inform you that the remote is now sync'd and now you will press a button on second remote. Good luck.

    Try reprograming the remote. Some models allow for you to do your own programing from the console. If it does not work E-bay has a wide selection of OEM inexpensive remotes. Good luck

    Changing a battery on a Cobra 7777 remote control

    The battery in the 7777 remote is a CR2032. If upon changing the battery the remote fails to work then you should stand next to the car and hold down both remote buttons for around 10 seconds to reactivate it. The remotes LED will flicker rapidly during this process. Keep holding both buttons until the LED stops flickering then release both buttons. The LED should now be on constant, press the larger of the two buttons and the remote should now be re-synced.
    Note: This procedure is not to program the remote to the alarm, but to re-synchronise it.
