2001 Chevrolet Impala Keyless Entry


Common problem, a small switch in the door lock breaks and does not activate the lock, all works from the key not remote, driver door recognises door not locked will unlock all doors, to repair you have to replace drivers door lock or just live with the key, I do

My 2007 keyless entry remotes have stopped working how can I fix them?


Keyless entry remotes allow you to put down and roll up the windows in your car. You would have to have the power windows feature installed on your keyless remote. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keyless entry did not work


If I am not mistaken, this is a safety feature. You manually locked the doors which told the computer you could possibly be in danger and someone on the outside has your key. After you unlocked and started the vehicle it reset the mode and that is why it works now without a problem. You can test this by manually locking it again and trying the keyless entry. If it does not work, then unlock and start the vehicle and try again. If it does work have the dealer check it out as it could be the receiver for the keyless system.

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working


The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.

Keyless Entry and Remote


I have had this problem take you drivers door put your key and un-lock from the out side with key (NO) then open the door push un-lock from the inside button and then set from you remote and it should set if not push un-lock then lock and then do the un-lock with the key. Let me know if that works. what my car did was locked from the inside and I had the problem were it would not work till I un-locked from the out side plus I had to go to radio shack and change the battery from the control.
Hope good happens.

Try "resetting" your keyless entry code. Which is a fancy way of explaining that I broke my keyless entry key fob and had to order a new one. It came w/ instructions explaining how to get the new fob to speak to the car's computer. It was weird (turn key on and off 3 times, open and close door three times, etc. **I'm sure my neighbors were watching and laughing**), but it worked. I'll scan and email you the insrtuctions if you wish. Dan: dcarterlaw@lycos.com
