You will need to reprogram the remote. Look in your manual on how to reprogram. Fairly simple.

good luck

DOOR WILL NOT UNLOCK WITH KEY OR REMOTE


didnt specify vehicle --generic answer --if key doesnt work on door then you have two problems --if fob doesnt open drivers door and other doors try changing fob battery -if no go either need locksmith or AAA service to slim door ---also if key doesnt open door possible lock linkage damage or disconnect --rare that both would happen and lastly make sure using proper fob and key

I changed the battery in the alarm key and now it doesnt work at all. what did i do wrong?


Vehicle key fobs work on a continuosly and randomly changing frequency so that no ones key fob should open anyone elses cars. Whenever you press the buttons, or someone unlocks your doors, the frequency is changed. The fob and computer in the car have a few codes stored so that if you press the button too many times out of range of the car it will still know what frequency should be transmitting. However if your battery dies, or you press the button too many times while out of range, you Fob and computer will be out of sync.

Long story short you may need to have your Fob re-programmed. You may fine this info in your owners manual, but will probably have to go to the dealer.

The other issue it could be is something i have heard of a few times for the chrysler FOBs, the solder in the fob that holds the connection for the battery may have broken, which will mean your battery is not connected right. You may want to consider popping it apart and taking a look to see if the solder is cracked at all.

Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:

1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.

Good luck

Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery


I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!
