Need help with FOB not responding to commands to lock/unlock doors or open trunk and panic alarm won't work? Replaced battery (CR2032) already. The doors, trunk and starting the car will still function...

Your best bet would be to have the vehicle scanned for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes first . Do you know which of these your vehicle has ?
Keyless Entry System Inoperative (Active)
Keyless Entry System Inoperative (Passive)
Does the customer complain about other symptoms related to this, such as poor range when the key fob buttons are pressed or intermittent Tire Pressure Monitoring issues? (It's possible the RF External Antenna at the RCDLR may have a poor connection.)
YES - Go to Step 3
No - Go to Step 4
Inspect the external RF antenna connection at the RCDLR. First, gently pull on the coax connector at the module. If the coax comes out, then it wasn't seated properly. Remove and carefully inspect the coax connection for bent blades or a bent center pin. Fix coax connection if necessary and re-seat connector until a "click" is heard. Gently pull on the coax connection to make sure it is seated properly. Was the inspection made?

Press each button of the transmitter one at a time.
Does the system operate normally?
YES - Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections
NO - Go to Step 5
Lock and unlock the door locks using the controls inside the vehicle.
Do the locks operate properly?
YES - Go to Step 6
NO - Go to Symptoms - Doors

Operate the rear compartment release and the fuel door release from the controls inside the vehicle.
Do the rear compartment release and the fuel door release operate properly?
YES - Go to Step 7
NO - Go to Symptoms - Body Rear End

Important: Ensure that the keyless entry transmitter is the correct model for the vehicle remote system. A wrong model transmitter may pass this test, but will not activate the keyless entry system.
Turn on the J 43241 Keyless Entry Tester.
Place the transmitter on the J 43241 test pad.
Press each button of the transmitter one at a time.
Does a tone sound and the green light illuminate on the J 43241 after each button is pressed?
YES - Go to Step 12
NO - Go to Step 8
Do any of the buttons on the transmitter sound the tone and illuminate the green light when pressed?

Replace the keyless entry transmitter. Refer to Transmitter Programming.
Did you complete the replacement?
Go to Step 12
Perform the programming procedure. Refer to Transmitter Programming.
Did the drivers information center (DIC) beep and display a message ready for next fob?
Go to Step 14
Go to Step 13
Replace the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). Refer to Control Module References for replacement, setup, and programming.
Did you complete the replacement?
Go to Step 14
Operate the system in order to verify the repair.
Did you correct the condition?

My 2001 pt cruiser auto door locks no longer work nor does the key fob. The door locks were acting like sssharp's - doing their own thing and locking or unlocking on their own and rattling in the back door...

As stated above, it is most likely your RKE (remote keyless entry module). It is easy to find and relatively easy to replace yourself. I just recently did so on my 2002 PT Cruiser. Got a used module from a 2005 at a salvage yard. Put in the module myself. However, you do have to take it to the dealer to reprogram so your remotes work with the module replacement. That cost me $50. If you are interested in doing the labor yourself, email me.

Car will not unlock.

To get inside the car .... Use the key in the lock cylinder, unlock the drivers door to get inside. You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob unless it or the keyless module was changed. There may be a blown fuse that supplies the keyless control module (check the owners manual for location). or wires that lead into the Drivers door may be damaged ... The keyless module is located inside the drivers door at the bottom behind the door panel ... do the unlock/lock and trunk release switches on the inside of the drivers door operate the locks and or trunk release? If so it is not the fuse ... and not the wires to it ... And it could be your BCM body control module, located in the dash board to right of your gas petal. Because the number entry keypad (code for that is on the inside of the right passenger trunk bracket arm) also doesn't work I assume it's not the key fobs themselves. Your 98 manual is correct for your car.

The auto door lock feature dose not work.

There is 3 relays in one of the fuse panels that are labeled doorlocks one of them is probably bad. Push the door lock button and find the one that is clicking this is the one that is back. This should fix your problem
