I've got 2009 Kia Sportage and drivers door will not unlock or lock with remote the remote does unlock the othe 4 doors how do I reset this?


You probably have an issue with the lock acctuator and need to have your door taken apart and worked on. You either have a rod off from the solenoid or a bad solenoid itself.

Power door lock switch?


Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.

2005 G6 remote . lock won't work but unlock does. Does not seem to be battery. Maybe the connection inside ?


Knowing the poor quality of this remote I would buy another remote on eBay and that will likely solve the problem. Here is a link to an eBay auction. Just $17.99 and free shipping.

I would take it back and tell them they need to fix it. it sounds like a wire for the lock/unlock may of fallen off or there is a problem with the remote stare module. wires tend to fall off if all the used were crimp connectors and didn't solder the wires together.

Remote often fails to unlock the doors on my 2006 Buick Lacrosse. Seems to work better from farther away.


  • I HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES WITH THE KEY FOB, OR "REMOTE" . UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION, I OPENED UP THE REMOTE AND FOUND THAT THE THIN, SHINY METAL FRAME ENCLOSING AND CRADLING THE COIN-LIKE BATTERY (CR2025) HAD BEEN SEPARATED FROM THE SOLDER POINTS ON THE SILICON CHIP.

  • I ALSO DISCOVERED THAT ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF THE CHIP (BUTTONS AND RUBBER COVERING SIDE) THAT THERE WAS DIRT, DEBRIS, AND OTHER GUNK WHICH WILL DEFINITELY SHORT CIRCUIT, CAUSING YOUR REMOTE'S BATTERY TO BE DISCHARGED OR MISFIRE. THIS IS BEST OBSERVED WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE A "STICKY" BUTTON EFFECT ONCE THE "LOCK" BUTTON IS DEPRESSED ONCE, BUT THE CAR FEED BACK SUGGESTS 2 PUSHES OF THE REMOTE WERE DETECTED. ANOTHER EXAMPLE: I COULD HAVE SWORN I PUSHED "UNLOCK" TWICE (UNLOCKING REAR DOORS )ON THE FOB/REMOTE BUT ONCE I GET TO THE CAR, DOOR IS STILL LOCKED! WTF.

SOLUTION:

KEEP KEY FOB / REMOTE CLEAN, REPAIR/REPLACE BROKEN BATTERY +/- CONNECTIONS IN THE REMOTE, REPLACE LITHIUM BATTERY

It sounds like you've got a broken wire on the drivers side door. Usually this occurs at the flex point of the wiring harness. Peel back the outer covering carefully exposing the wires inside. Repair any broken or those about to break. Solder & retape or shrink rap with heat gun.Hope this helps. Good luck!

One possibility is the metal contact within theremote has moved and can't make contact or the metal piece broke from use. I had the same issue, took it apart, found the broken piece and took it to an electronics repair shop to solder it. That was cheaper than buying a new remote.
