First thing to do is to clean the contacts on the switches. Take the remote apart, and use alcohol on a rag, and rub the copper contact points on the circuit board with it, and also do the same for the backs of the rubber buttons. While you're in there, check the solder joints on the battery holder, as these like to crack and give you a bad connection. If none of these work, you may just have a transmitter that's getting weak, and should replace it. You'll find that there are places such as Ebay where you can find new or refurbished ones for much less than you can find at a dealer.

Keyless entry stopped working on 2002 suburban; all locks/windows work when pressed but no keyless entry; batteries have been replaced on both remotes


I have a few ideas for you:

1) I know this sounds crazy, but try disconnecting the vehicle battery (both terminals) for at least 10 minutes, then reconnect them and try the remote again.

2) Replace the batteries in the key fob.

3) Take the circuit board out, wipe it down, and try again. Here is a video showing this process: How To Clean Your Key Fob Circuit Board

4) Reprogram the remote using these procedures:
1. Close all vehicle doors. 2. Insert the key into the ignition.
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver?s door panel-continue to hold
down until instructed to release in step 9.
4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the
engine).
6. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
9. Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock
the doors automatically.
10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until
the door locks and unlocks.
This step may take up to 30 seconds.
11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing
transmitters).
12. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming
mode.
5) Order a new remote from us online at https://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/Chevrolet-Suburban-Remotes-and-Keys-s/3679.htm

4. Within 5 seconds, push & hold the FUEL INFO button on the DIC until
the PKE light comes on and stays on.
5. Turn the ignition to the OFF position, but leave the key in the ignition.
The PKE light will begin flashing.
6. Bring one Keyless Remote into range. The PKE light will stop flashing
and stay on to show the code is stored. Move the Keyless Remote out
of range. The PKE light will begin flashing indicating the system is ready
for the next Keyless Remote.
7. If more than one Keyless Remote is being programmed, move the first
Keyless Remote out of range and repeat step 6 for any additional Keyless
Remotes. Up to three Keyless Remotes can be programmed.
8. To turn off the programming mode, simply remove the key from the ignition
or turn the ignition switch on.
9. The programming mode will shut off after two minutes if.
A) You have not programmed any Keyless Remotes.

Ford Keyless Entry Remote Programming Instructions


For most Ford vehicles you can self-program the remote for keyless entry. However there are some of the newer models that require professional equipment to program the keyless entry remote. You can check out what vehicles have self programming and which ones need professional programming here: https://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/Key-Fob-Programming-Instructions-s/1856.htm

In the meantime here are the most common Ford Keyless Entry Remote programming instructions:

*** THERE ARE 2 POSSIBLE PROGRAMMING PROCEDURES. ***Procedure #1Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
Note: Do not depress the brake pedal during procedure.
  1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  2. Within 20 seconds press any button on the first keyless remote to be programmed. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. If you only have one remote then skip to step 4.
  3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. Repeat step 3. For all other remotes.
  4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

    Procedure #2Note: Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle.
  5. Fasten seat belts and close all doors.
  6. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 6 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. (Off is the position where you can remove your key, RUN is the position just shy of starting your car.)
  7. Turn ignition to OFF. Acoustic signal will sound and system warning lamp will illuminate to confirm programming mode.
  8. Within 10 seconds, press and hold any button on the first keyless remote. Wait for acoustic sound and warning lamp to flash (confirming programming) then release button on remote. Wait 2 seconds but within 10 seconds repeat step 4. For all other remotes. If you only have one remote then continue to step 5.
  9. Turn ignition to Crank or wait 10 seconds to end programming mode.
