Sorry, GM's are the worst for programming fob's. You don't have to go to the dealer though. there are plenty of people out there that can do/will it for less. You will just have to call around. I have the equipment to do it, but I don't own a garage. I don't charge for it. As long as I don't have to tear into the car. Free stuff like this, brings me plenty of other paying jobs. Do you live near Indy?

Changed battery. key fob & overhead controls will not open any doors.

I think you may have contact a mercury dealers service dept to ask if the key has a procedure to restore information in the ram/rom . The ICs in somee key fobs lose some of the data when the current supplied by a cell/battery is absent, you may have lost some of that data or the key may have been damaged. An auto locksmith may also be able to advise further on this matter

Jeep door wont open with the key

Make sure you have the right key. Check and see if it works in another door or the rear hatch. If it works you could have something rusted or sticking. Does it go all the way in? Will it turn freely both ways? If so then something could be broken inside. If it does not go all the way in or sticks try spraying some WD40 or rust out, or penetrating oil into the key slot. If that does still not work you will have to take the inside door panel off. Hope this helps.

Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating

1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
