Are you saying the car won't lock with the key in the driver's door?
Does the Central locking pump work ok?
The test is to sit in the car with the doors closed and the ignition on and press the door central locking switch (located just in front of the driver's interior door handle).
If this fails, there's a problem with the pump - repair or replace (replacement will need coding/adapting).

If the door locks with the switch, but does not with the key (assuming key turns in the lock), it'll be a lock micro switch. I don't think these are replaceable on their own. You may attempt cleaning it, or replace the lock assembly.
Is there a key lock on the passenger side? Does that work? Odds are both failing are pretty remote...

Otherwise do as George says and try to get the remote working.
Does it only have one? They came with two and they're quite expensive to replace...

It needs to be adapted using dealer scan tool or if you know someone with VAGCOM.  Make sure you have all your remotes.  When performing this.

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

Intall Remote Keyless Entry System in an 02 Honda Accord


You got the Wrong Information! Go to Wal Mart and Purchase a "Bulldog Security Keyless Entry" System for your Car. It will cost you a Quarter of the Price and is Just asw Reliable as the Factory Unit! Got one on My Truck with Remote Start also and it works GREAT! Should cost about $50.00 Bucks or so.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Keyless Entry/Security System


Your keyless/security system may have been damaged by the spikes. But, assuming you've already checked all the fuses, I would start by having the alternator tested. I would also check the alternator wire connection to the power distribution center (pdc). It can loosen and cause different problems.

Good Luck!
