You may have to get it reprogrammed at the dealership sometimes if the batteries were dead for to long then the remote loses its codes

My doors keep unlocking themself even after i lock it remotey or manuel?


a. When you lock the doors (with the Switch) with you inside... do they stay locked?
b. Do your Doors lock automatically when you put it in gear?

Power door lock switch?


Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

Remote control won't lock/unlock doors, but will open the trunk. What;s wrong?


There is a fuse box under the right rear seat cushion behind the driver. In that box is a 10 amp mini fuse marked "TRUNK DR RELEASE". That is the fuse that powers your remote receiver. If that fuse is good, the receiver may have failed. To remove the seat cushion, pull the front of the cushion up and then forward.

I got the Viper 5101 remote start installed in my 2007 Hyundai Sante Fe at best buy. The remote works for auto start, but will only lock and unlock the doors sometimes. It seems like if I unlock or lock...


I would take it back and tell them they need to fix it. it sounds like a wire for the lock/unlock may of fallen off or there is a problem with the remote stare module. wires tend to fall off if all the used were crimp connectors and didn't solder the wires together.

Door lock won't function


If you cannot lock/unlock any doors at all, change the battery on your remote. If all the other doors work, but not the driver's door, there's a malfunctioning magnetic switch on the door.
