It could be a weak battery or the remote itself. To change the battery you need to pry the remote apart with a screw driver where the two halves come together. Look carefully at the sloder joints inside the remote they sometimes come apart causing a poor/no connection between the battery contacts and the little circuit board inside the remote.

I have a problem. I can not get into my Jaguar. The car would not start last time I got into it so I was going to charge the battery and try again but I can not get into the car.


As i understand your quest you cant open the doors? Can you open the back trunk? If so you can disassamble the back seat wall and enter this way to the car. Post back.

My highlander 2008, the doors can be locked and open with key and remote but cannot open the trunk with key and remote


To make the rear door open, you have to hold the button for a while. If the battery is weak, that will drain the power and the door will not open. Try the other remote and see if it works. At that point, I would replace the batteries in both remotes anyway.
That would be the fastest and cheapest way to eliminate one possible problem.
If the inside open button works to open the door, I would say the mechanism is working fine and it is the batteries.
I had to replace the batteries in both my remotes at the 3 year mark. That should be about now, the second time, for yours.

Remot not working


check and replace the battery on your remote especially if it is the stock battery the remotes are built to withstand alot of abuse but cold water or very hot dry heat can easily short them so if the battery doesnt work replace the remote at a suzuki dealer

Remote on 2005 g6 work some times and sometimes not,where do i check


The first step would be to replace the battery in the remote, if you haven't already. Usually, you pry them open with a screwdriver or a dime.
Does the other remote work OK?

I have a 2005 envoy, my key fab only works if im right beside the car, i changed the battery and it still will only work if im right beside it, the fob is not even a year old, can it be screwed already?


remotes ocassionaly need to be resynched with the vechile. I am not sure on the exact steps for your vechile but it should state in the manual. Like my 99 I have to have door open, and push lock and unlock buttons on remote at the same time for 15 seconds. Works great for a year or so then needs it again. Should be located under remote or key FAB, just look through the manual good.

Car remote not working


Sounds like you need a remote, or the remote lost its program. You need to check at the dealership to be sure.

You need to remove the battery and have it checked to see if it's shot. When the battery is removed, clean the battery terminals and cables. countrycurt0
