Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

2006 keyless remote will not work

None of the 5 remote buttons work. Dealer has confirmed that it is not the keyless remote itself but have not been able to fix the problem. Can the fact that the steering wheel will lock not affect the keyless remote?

SOURCE: keyless remote issues 06 g6

FWIW,
I've had a similar problem, but ONLY using the remote to "Unlock" the doors (that's the only button I use on the remote). I found the special coating on the "Unlock" button that makes contact with the circuit board was wearing off. I got another fob from a friend, it worked for about a year and then the same problem. The semi-conductive coating was worn off as well.
I played around and was able to open the doors by touching the circuit board itself with my finger.
If that describes your problem search the web for replacement rubber buttons, it takes less than a minute to swap-out, they range from $700 to $10 plus shipping.
Also your fob shouldn't have needed re-programming, the dealers are making a fortune with this re-program ****.

For the technical types;
The coating is a semi-conductive coating. The resistance of a "good" pad was hard to measure. I put resistors across the circuit board, I started @ 10k, it worked, then 100k, 100k didn't work, 82k worked fine. I just added a small micro-switch and no problems since.

Good Luck

THIS IS THE PROCEDURE, FOLLOW IT EXACTLY OR IT WILL NOT WORK.



Transmitter Programming
No Tools Required
In the event that a transmitter is lost, program the old and the new transmitters into the memory of the remote control door lock receiver. Up to 4 transmitters may be programmed.


Important
Once the keyless entry receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information. You must then program all of the transmitters.

Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If you program multiple receivers simultaneously, the same transmitter could possibly be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver.


Perform the following steps:

Sit in the vehicle driver's seat. (actually it’s much ezr from the front pass seat)
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Close all of the vehicle's doors.
Remove the MALL PGM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Electronic Diagnosis in Body and Chassis.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to the ACC position.
Turn the ignition lock cylinder OFF, then back to ACC within 1 second.
Open and then close any vehicle door. You will hear a chime when the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode. If you do not hear a chime, start again at step 1.

Important
After 7 seconds, you may hear a chime confirming successful synchronization. After approximately 14 seconds, you will hear a chime confirming successful programming.


Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
Repeat step 8 in order to program each additional transmitter.
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Install the MALL PGM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Electrical Diagnosis in Body and Chassis.
Validate that all the transmitters that were programmed operate properly. Refer to Keyless Entry System Operation

SOURCE: How do you take the

You should never try to take apart the airbag unless you absolutely know what you are doing for you can injure yourself very seriously.But on that note,disconnect the battery.Behind where you grab on the steering wheel there should be some screws.Take those out and remove the front of the center of the steering wheel.That will give you access to the airbag.You may have to have special tools to take the airbag itself out.Then there should be the switch.If it is not there you might have to remove the whole steering wheel by removing the center nut then use a steering wheel puller to take the steering wheel off.It should be located on the steering wheel shaft.

Do not circumvent the process. Take all your FOBs to a Pontiac/GM dealer. Pay the $40ish to get it all done and walk away with officially programmed FOBs. There is no other way to do this unless you have the highly expensive scan tools they use. Just bite the bullet

I need instructions to program keyless entry remote for 2002 Hundai Santa Fe


For a 1994 to 2006 Sonata, a 2001 to 2006 Elantra, a 2000 to 2006 XG350 or a 2001 to 2006 Santa Fe, you will need to access alarm system control module. On most of those vehicles it is located on the driver's side fascia panel. But on the Sonata, the facia panel is in the center.

  • 2 Once you have found this module, you will want to ensure that the memory switch is in the OFF position. Then turn the ignition on.
  • 3 Wait 5 seconds and set the memory switch to SET position and then press the remote transmitter lock button to send the code to the alarm system control module.
  • 4 If you would like to program a second remote transmitter then you will need to press second remote transmitter lock button.
  • 5 Next set the memory switch to off, then turn the ignition off. You can confirm your programming by locking and unlocking the vehicle with both of the remotes. good luck my friend

    How to program a previously used bmw keyless remote for a different 2006 bmw 325i


    1) Get in and close all doors.

    5) Hold down the unlock button (which is button 1 on my key) and press the lock button 3 times (center button on my key). Release the unlock button and the doors lock which confirms the operation.
    6) Quickly repeat steps 4 & 5 for key #2 etc.
    If it does not work, try doing the keys in opposite order. Key 2 then key1, vs 1 then 2

    How do I reprogram the keyless entry keypad?


    You can found the code on F-150 up under the dash. There is a sticker on a grey box. That is the code that you need to open the door. You can then use that code to program your own 5 digit code that you will remember.

    For program your keyless pad (clic image), check the procedure in your 2006 Ford F-150 Owners Manual moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png(page 108 and next).

    Hi, Stacie,

    here's the instructions for a 97 TL - I hope they're the same.

    Note:
    Entering the programming mode cancels all learned keyless remotes, so
    none of the previously programmed remotes will work. You must reprogram
    all of the keyless remotes once you are in the programming mode.
    You must complete each step within 4 seconds of the previous step to keep
    the system from exiting the programming mode. You must program remotes
    within 10 seconds of each other

    1. Turn ignition switch to ON (II)
    2. Within 4 seconds press the LOCK or UNOCK button on one of the remotes.
    (An unprogrammed remote can be used for this step.)

    3. Within 4 seconds turn ignition switch to LOCK (0) position
    4. Within 4 seconds turn the ignition switch to ON (II)
    5. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 two more times using the same keyless remote
    used in step 2

    6. Within 4 seconds press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on the same remote.
    Make sure the power door locks cycle to confirm you are in programming
    mode.

    7. Within 10 seconds press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on same remote.

    8. Within 10 seconds press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on all other
    remotes you want to program. Make sure door locks cycle after you push
    each remote button to confirm system has accepted the remote.

    9. Turn the igniton switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.
    10. Test remote(s)

    Hope this helps :)
