Remote control buttons operated repeatedly while vehicle out of range and system becomes inoperative. System malfunction.

chapter 2 covers, programming the remote (fob)

if this is a panic button post>
do you know that is a feature that
is defeat-able, all mine are, hate it.
having it go off in pocket is a pain.(max pain)

so I kill all mine, as many do. (1 of 2 ways)
some cars you can program it to go off
the operators guide covers that,

does car drive perfectly day and night?
does alarm work as it should, otherwise?

here is the free version online

i see only extra key programming
not defeating features.
in that case, i hack the fob by killing the panic button with a button block hack, I use plastic film
under the switch button, (can be regressed)

here is how a googler would hack a FOB
see twinturbo here, (he's the man)

i use mylar plastic strip.

2000 Grand Vitara remote. Why can't I program it?

wrong remote.
Pcm has many rules for programming the fob.
im not looking yours up, (you can at the FSM link below for 4 bucks)
1: wrong remote
2: too many remotes programmed,(some have 8 limit)
3: some cars (newer) takes 2 good remotes to make a 3 or more..
see how rules matter (logic in the PCM) varies by maker and year, on all cars made......

USA spec, cars, we are USA forum. so....

there it is , read how the IMMO works and door fobs program.

Why do the doors keep locking themselves on my 02 suzuki grand vitara?

faulty ground

if the unit re-inits power it locks the door

you could also have a faulty battery that voltage has a low 11 or 10,5 v

so will start up and run just one cell has died

if this isnt the case then its some sort of ground leakage of the supply to the alarm triggered central clocking relay feed {from alarm to doors ..
i suspect a ground with rust

2004 Grand Vitara. Warming the car this morning, locked it.Came back with remote and a key and the doors would not unlock.Engine was running with the other key in it. Had to have a locksmith break in. Why...

don't have 2 fobs?
it cam with 2,
and the battery must be good.(for buttons to work on fob)
never run any car with only 1 fob or one key.
or get locked out.
are you saying the metal cut key end (pure mechanical ) failed?

my car has a real key with a a transponder inside .
it can open 2 ways, the keyfob buttons, (takes a good battery)
and the key metal end.

get a spare fob and program it.

now you have 2 like you should.

My suzuki grand vitara has keyless start/entry but I have never been able to lock the doors with the starter token in the car when it is not running is this a safety/security feature?

most newer vehicles will not lock the door with the keys in the ignition and/or the keyless start remote fob in the vehicle. Vitara has a small button on the handle that will unlock the door if you have the fob in your pocket if the fob is in the car it can"t be secured since it is set up to unlock when the fob is within a couple feet of the vehicle. I know this is a late post for your question maybe it will help others

Is it possible to program a new keyless entry fob for a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara?

try this...

1. Make sure vehicle is in Park
2. Press Vehicle Information button (has the icon of a car and an 'i')until 'PRESS *check mark* TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY' displays.
3. Press set/reset button. The message 'REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE' will display.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for about 15 seconds. A beep will sound indicating that the transmitter is matched.
5. To match additional transmitters at this time, repeat Step 3. Each vehicle can have a maximum of four transmitters matched to it.
6. To exit the program mode, you must cycle the key to LOCK.

If that doesnt work, go to:
