    1. Turn ignition to RUN or ACC. 2. Momentarily jump pins in programming connector located in LR quarter panel area (Connector will not be plugged into anything, it will have two pins inside it, if you have to unlug it you have the WRONG one. Not all vehicles are set up from factory for keyless remotes) All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode. 3. Press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. 4. If programming a second keyless remote, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. 5. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

That only works on old OBD 1 computers - unhook your battery for a couple hours - that might put your computer back to default and you can take it to auto zone and have them scan your computer for free.

SOURCE: key fob no longer unlocks car doors or trunk

you may have to replace the remotes and then have them reprogramed for the car because they do go bad but if there is an autozone near you they will test the remotes for free

Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.

Wireless enteryhow do you reset the reciever and reprogram the remotes


I suggest check the right procedure in your owners manual, and keep in mind this...

Here is a quick HowTo on programming your own keyless entry:

1) Turn ignition to OFF.
2) Locate the Data Link Connector, its a black 16 pin connecter that is under the driver's side dash, right where your right knee would be. You have to look up into the dash from below to see it.
3) Ground pin 1 of the Data Link Connector by taking a wire or paper clip and running it from pin 1 to pin 4. Pin 4 is ground so you can just short pin 1 to 4 and it will be grounded. Grounding pin 1 tells the system you are ready to reprogram it.
4) Close all of your doors.
5) Turn the key to ACC then back off. The power door locks will lock/unlock. This is the signal that the system is ready for reprogramming.
6) Push a button on your key fob, doesn't matter which button.
7) If you have 2 key fobs, then press a button on the 2nd fob within 1 minute of pressing a button on the 1st fob. Both must be programmed at the same time. If you only have 1 fob then press a button 2 more times to signal that you only have one.
8) The doors will lock/unlock to signal the codes were received.
9) Remove the jumper wire from the data connector. This is the same process that I use/used to reprogram my stock key fob. It's word for word on how to do this on your Avenger/Sebring. Since it's not in my own words I used quotes and it was written (or copied) by several folks with either 2G Eclipses/Talons or Avenger/Sebrings,


Hope helps.

Changed oil and cleaned battery cables.Started car up. Ran for 2 seconds security alarm went off car shut down.no power to fuel pump.Is there some way to reset the fuel pump


You need to reset the alarm system.That can be done with the remote entry key fob or by locking then unlocking the drivers door with the ignition key with all doors closed.This is for a factory alarm system.Also check the inertia switch,should be in the trunk,on the side with a push button top.Push button.If already down its not tripped.

My key will open my trunk, but not unlock my doors or start my car.


Open the trunk. Take out the trunk lid light - take the bulb out of the fixture. Place a 12 volt battery in the trunk. Take an alligator clip jumper wire - connect one end to the negative terminal of the battery and the other end of the jumper wire to the car chassis - make sure it is a good connection and is not on a painted surface - I place mine on a bolt on the rear light panel. Take another alligator clip jumper wire and connect one end to the 12 volt positive terminal and connect the other end to the short end of the light connectors (there are two connectors for the light - one is short and one is long). This should give you enough voltage to unlock the doors. I had to figure this out and have used it twice on my BMW.
