Power door lock swtiches wont work

So basically i got an 03 maxima. i still have the original keyless entry keyfob which is able to unlock and lock the car and open the trunk just fine. however, the inside door lock switches will not work unless the key is in the ignition and turned on. the car doesnt have to be on, but the ignition has to be on, i think its the ACC?

in any case what could the problem be? i got it 2 years ago and about six months later found out itd been in what appeared to be a really nasty accident, which isnt even on carfax or carcheck in any case...what could the problem be??

The lock switches should be on a battery lead,l which means they work when the car is off. The window switches are different because the ign. has to be on for the windows to go up and down. What your problem sounds like to me, is the door has been replaced as a result of the accident and the lock switch is wired wrong. if you can get the rubber tube that houses the wires from the door to the body of the car open or off and see if the wires are plug in or just spliced together, you'll then have to trace the lock wire and see if it's attached to a power wire.

    Is the fob not unlocking your doors or the switch on the door?

I've seen alot of other folks with this.
I would go to the Nissan parts dept. in your town, and see if there's a battery in the fob that goes bad/ Let me know what you find out?

2003 crown vic keyfob only works with ignition in run position .keyless entry and door locks work fine.even tried new keyfob.no change


The keyless entry system consists of the following components:
  • driver door module (DDM)
  • keyless entry transmitter
  • keyless entry keypad
The driver door module (DDM) receives inputs from the digital transmission range (TR) sensor, ignition switch, brake switch, window/door lock switches, lighting control module (LCM), keyless entry keypad switch and remote transmitter. The DDM outputs consists of keyless entry keypad switch illumination, power door lock actuators, luggage compartment release solenoid, horn relay, and lighting control module (LCM).
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses:
    • circuit breaker 7 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB)
    • 4 (10A)
    • 6 (15A)
    • 8 (25A)
    • 13 (5A)
  • Keyless entry keypad switch
  • Power door lock actuator
  • Luggage compartment release switch
  • Luggage compartment release solenoid
  • Connectors or connections
  • Wiring harness
  • If fuse's good have checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
  • B1526 Keyless Entry Circuit Short to Ground DDM Go To Pinpoint Test E . B1553 Decklid Release Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test B . B1751 Park/Neutral Switch Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test K . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization DDM Go To Pinpoint Test L Need a professional grade scan tool to check fro these codes . Not a code reader for OBD2 codes .
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter not programmed.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • DDM.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .

Did you program the new key fob ?

Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
  1. NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification

I have a 2005 cobalt every time I open the doors the alarm goes off I replaced the battery in keyless entry but they do not work can anyone help?


You may have accidentally broke the controller. They are fragile. The newer cars like yours automatically set the alarm when the doors are locked from keychain remote, or locking manually. New remote, $50-100.

2007 gmc yukon denali wont unlock w/ keyfob


Check the buttons.. I have an 06 Grand Prix with the Remote starter on the top and it seems that the conductor on the buttons worn out.. Take the keyfob apart, pull the rubber buttons off the chip, lick your finger and touch the place where the unlock (right side of the fob) would be. That should unlock your doors. I just did it with mine. I would just buy another fob on ebay and change the buttons out.. Hope this works

security module in the trunk ???? There is no security module in the trunk . What light's come on by them self ? Park lamps , headlamps , brake lamps ,turn signals etc.... The module for anti-theft is under the right hand side of the dash . The remote keyless entry module is located in the trunk. Is this the part you hear clicking in ?
Door Lock Control Processor, Electronic NOTE: The electronic door lock control system will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
The electronic door lock control processor:
  • is located on the LH side of the luggage compartment.
  • contains a radio receiver that receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) through electronic door lock control processor antenna, and sends the appropriate command to the power door locks, the horn relay, the indicator flasher, or the anti-theft warning system.
  • is equipped with a battery backup which holds the programmed code in memory in the event the vehicle battery is disconnected.

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working


The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
