2003 kia sorento keyless entry not working


If both remotes light up and don't work even right next to the car, the car and remotes may need to be paired again. I found where someone mentioned disconnecting the car batter for more than one minute but less than five and seeing if it works again. If not, you may have to get it checked at a dealer. Most of these fobs are only programable with special tools at the dealer. I've purchased nissan oem fobs new on ebay, but still had to pay the local dealer to get them to work.

How does key fob work


Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:

1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking).
2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.

When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.

Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.

Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.


Hope this helps....

How do I reprogram the key fob on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe without having to pay the fee at the dealership?


Well, you basically have only 3 choices:
1. Pay the fee at the dealership
2. Purchase the high-dollar equipment that is required to perform the programming procedure
3. Forget about adding another key fob to tor vehicle.

Have verified that my newly purchased 03 kia sorento has remote keyless entry, but professional locksmith cannot get new remote to program. Remote is Bontec T009, pretty sure it is correct one. Could it be...


Yes the 03 and up sorento has a keyless remote entry, You do not need to reset the ECU, you however need to reprogram the remote trasmitter to your car so they communicate, otherwise it will never work if you do not program it. You will need to take this to a kia dealership with the remote transmitter. They may or may not charge you for a fee. However I did had a remote, and it became damaged when my kid drop it in the fish tank. I was able to get it done at the dealship, 35 for the remote, and 50 for service fee. I did however found some link referal to manually do it yourself, Please check this forum out http://www.kia-forums.com/2003-2010-sorento-forum/34549-remote-keyless-entry.html. For me, I did not bother, because I did not want to take the chance to mess up something else.

My remote keyless entry stopped working after engine cleaner was sprayed in the engine compartment at a car wash, any ideas what happened?


that is a common mistake someone probably sprayed the power box directly while it was hot and smoked the relay

Keyless Entry For 2003 Grand Am 2.2L 5 speed manual


the mechanic should be able to let you know what is the problem and what it takes to get it to work.
if the car was not equipted with the keyless entry and the dealer tried to sell you the remotes then you need to return the remotes.
by running the VIN on their computer, the dealer can tell you if you have it or not.
if I was you, I would just get a remote starting system from best buy or sam's then either have them install or have a good mechanic to install the system. it may be cheaper too!
