You just get this car.
or it worked before but not now? key questions.

door switch driver and RKE not working right.

and some cars the driver has a master switch and local switch.
and some have a kids safe switch that kills the other doors.
i dont have the opr,guides. for liberties.

in this case , this is a programmable feature. most newer jeeps.
you can program most cars. for (only driver door works with fob)
this is for security, (like airport parking , alone, at night)
the operators guide (lost already )covers this. in the glove box.
most folks don't read it ,they just drive to jeep service and
ask to have it set like you want. and pay $100.
it could be a fault too... but that will take checking above first.
on my other car, i must click 2 times to open all doors, (GM)

the dealer will scan the PCM/BCM puters. to see if they are throwing
DTC errors. any good scan tool can do this.
and check fuses first. never last. or get egg in face.

did you read this?

lost it , then get it and put it on a flash stick and put it back in the glove box or burn a CD . (or kill a tree and print it)

page 21
To Unlock the Doors and Liftgate
Press and release the UNLOCK button on the RKE
transmitter once to unlock the driver's door or twice to
unlock all doors and the liftgate. The turn signal lights
will flash to acknowledge the unlock signal. The illuminated
entry system will also turn on.

Remote Key Unlock, Driver Door/All Doors First
This feature lets you program the system to unlock either
the driver's door or all doors and the liftgate on the first
press of the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter.
change the current setting, proceed as follows:
• For vehicles equipped with the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC), refer to "Remote Key
Unlock," under "Personal Settings (Customer-
Programmable Features)," under "Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC)" in Section 4.

end quote.

my GUESS, you didnt RTM.

My 2002 jeep liberty door locks keeps making a clicking noise when I drive. Weeks later now the keyless remote want work. I changed the batteries. When I drive the door lock will lock in 15 seconds. I have...

Sounds as if the key remote had one of its buttons stuck down.this happen to me when a girlfriend used her nail to press the remote and the rubber flap got pushed inside the fob and kept the remote sending signals.unfortunately you can't just swap out batteries as most key fobs have to be reprogrammed.if you use the dealership that your make is serviced by it is better to ask how much they charge as sometimes independent auto locksmiths can reprogram key fobs cheaper.

    Jeep liberty 2006 power lock will lock but not unlock

    there are 3 ways to lock.
    key metal
    on door switches
    and the FOB, RKE.

    so is this a fob question? key fob? only failure???????
    did you know that many fob modes are PROgrammable?
    the operators guide tells you how to do that.
    did you try both fobs, that came with car new., if not why not?
    did you replace the 8 year old fob batteries, no , why not now.?

    on my 08 (for example) :
    can program it to only open drivers door. or all.
    and autolock feature off or on.

    on my other car all was worked fine. then drives door failed
    to open (all 3 fobs fail, one is new) the door solenoid was bad.
    $100 part. now fixed, by me.
    so do all fobs fail. if in fact this is a FOB question
    RKE (called remote key entry by jeep)

    i have 4 fobs for my jeep now. you must have 2 good keys.
    to make a 3rd by self.
    so keep 2 , never ever used. to be self sufficient.
    this is not a door issue, above 3 lines, its a not getting stranded issue.

    Some of my doors will lock and unloc by remote and som will not how do I fix this

    do they work when using the master switch on the drivers door panel? if only the drivers door unlocks when pressing the button, it may be a personal setting change needed. in this case usually pushing the unlock button on the remote twice will then unlock all doors. if there is only one lock that doesn't work it is most likely the door lock actuator that is at fault or a broken wire in the door opening wiring harness of the door that the lock does not work on.

    2008 Aura XR, Key FOB will unlock all the doors but the drivers, and will only remote start the car if the Fob is in the car.

    Interesting. My best guess is that there is problem with driver's door lock actuator or switch. The remote start won't work because the car has to confirm that the doors are locked before initiating the starting sequence.
