Where is the keyless remote receiver. Key fobs are not working properly. Batteries just changed recently.

Lube the locks and check your settings in the control panel to make sure they did not get changed to not allow the remotes to work

Keyless entry remote doesn't open doors anymore on my 05 ford focus

Sounds like the contacts in the buttons are not making contact.. you may want to try taking the remote apart and cleaning the contacts and seeing what happens. If the remote is truely dead you may need a new remote

2005 toyota 4runner remote lock works intermittently

very simple fix, open the remote as if the battery was going to be removed, remove the chip were the battery is attached, remove rubber cover were the buttons indicate what they are, get a napkin or paper towel or a cotton ball with small amount of alcohol and clean all the contacts on the rubber pad and on the board, no too wet, and dry the surface right after, a good practice will be ro use a pensil erasor to clean the metal contacts first with the erasor, then clean it, it well work like new.

Remote not workinggoes off when I insert key in door lock. What can be done?

The remote may have corrosion on the circuit board. Do you have multiple remotes and have you tried it with both? If its only one remote then you can get a new one for around $50 depending on the car. You can try to crack open the remote case like you would when replacing the battery, then remove the battery and use some alcohol and a Q-tip to clean the little circuit board where the buttons touch and make contact. Clean up any buildup of skin and grease, let it dry for 30 minutes to be sure there is no remaining liquid. (Alcohol dries faster but its always better to be safe with electronics.) Put the battery back in and put it together and go try it out. If it still doesn't work then you will need to probably take it into the dealer or whomever installed the alarm. Sometimes the module in the car get out of sync and needs to be recalibrated. This happens more with after market Alarm installs more than OEM equipment.

My remote to open doors stoped working

step one is to replace the battery, you can get new ones at radio shack, walmart, anywhere hearing aid and watch batteries are sold. instructions for opening the transmitter are in the owners manual. if that does not work you may need to take the remote apart and gently clean the electrical contact surfaces with a clean pencil eraser. if that does not work then you need a new transmitter.
