will sound and the SKIS indicator light will begin to
flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the
second key.

May be keyfob needs reprogramming.

Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

Key fobs do not lock/unlock doors, horn or trunk release. Batteries in key fob is good, fuses are good. What's next/


Retrain the fobs following the procedure in your owner's manual:

 Once entering this procedure, programming the first transmitter erases all previous transmitters. You must program all transmitters.
 Program one vehicle at a time. One transmitter could be programmed into other vehicles that are also on
program mode in close proximity.
1. Sit in the driver's seat.
2. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Close all vehicle doors.
4. Press and hold unlock on the door lock switch.
5. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, insert and remove the ignition key twice. Do
not rotate the ignition lock cylinder.
6. Insert the ignition key a third time leaving the key in the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition must remain
in the LOCK position for the rest of the procedure.
7. Release the door lock switch. You will hear three chimes. This chime feedback indicates that transmitter
programming is active.
8. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time on the keyless entry transmitter for 12
seconds.
You will hear two chimes. This chime feedback indicates that the transmitter has been
programmed successfully.

10. Exit this procedure by removing the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY 99 GRAND CARAVAN


INSTALLATION: REMOVE THE TOP DASH COVER USING A FLAT TIP SCREW DRIVER AND LOCATE THE CONNECTOR FOR THE RKE MODULE. THE CONNECTOR WILL BE SMALL AND LOCATED NEXT TO THE HVAC DISTRIBUTION DUCT. MOUNT MODULE AND INSERT THE CONNECTOR. SINCE THE BODY CONTROL MODULE IS INVOLVED WITH THE RKE THIS MAY OR MAY NOT WORK BECAUSE NOT ALL CONTROLLERS ARE THE SAME BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY TO PERFORM THE TASK TRY THIS. FOR PROGRAMMING:
  1. Using a functional key fob transmitter, unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System.
  2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting engine.
  4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum four seconds (maximum ten seconds)
  5. While holding UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press and release the PANIC button. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s)
  6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful.
  7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle (up to 4 total)
  8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s)
  9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob
