Question about 2008 Buick Lacrosse

1 Answer

Remotes worked great, then...The (RKE) remotes only worked sometimes. I thought the batteries where low so I replaced on both RKE remotes, then more problems. Sometimes it opens the doors, sometimes it starts the car, mostly they don't work at all. I tried resetting them through the DIC center, but still only works sometimes. Then just yesturday, my drivers door only unlocks or locks sometimes and the power button on drivers door quit working.

Take it back to the dealer. Manufacturers have a code of practice that says that they warrant cars for three years on parts that not subject to normal wear and tear (brakes, tires etc). The problem is electrical and therefore not part of the component list subject to wear and tear. If you get no joy from the dealer take it up directly with GM. Buick have been building a reputation for reliability and quality construction so they should be keen to keep you happy on what is such a young car

My Ford Focus car doesn't centrally lock anymore, I have to use the key. It's not the fob battery because I changed it.


Sure you did put in a new battery? sure you did insert it correct? not the other way around? sure you did use the correct battery? like CR23 or AAA?
Sure all contacts in the battery compartment and on the battery are clean and shiny?
just a few things you could check.

Why won't my Infiniti M35 remotes work now that i put new batteries in them?


If the remotes are anything like GM remotes - you will have to reprogram them both. Most Auto-Zone stores will do it for free - if you buy the batteries from them. Or google Infinity remotes and they will tell you how to do it yourself.

Im instaling a remote start alarm on my 1999 ford f 150 how do i bipass the anti theft and i do not want to carry 2 remotes around


The 2 Key fob part, is to get a remote start that also has the RKE ( Remote Keyless Entry ) function. The the RMST / RKE system is installed, the RMST fob would be able to operate the door locks ( you can put the factory RKE fobs in the drawer )

the PATS ( Passive AntiTheft System ) part is to get a PATS bypass module for the remote start. The remote start that you purchase needs to be able to activate this prior to starting the truck ( usually pulse / signal outputs, most mfgr of RMST have these ).

There are a few PATS bypass modules, I have only used the Ford branded one ( which I think is also made by CodeAlarm, not 100% sure ).

I want the security feature to the remote disabled how do I do this?


To de-program the RKE fob from the 1st truck ( the 1998 one ? ), enter programming mode. I had to try 3 times on my 2001 to enter programming mode, and thought I did it the same each time, obviously I did not, so do not give up if you do not enter programming mode the 1st time.

Once you enter programming mode ( locks cycle ) wait 30 seconds, and programming mode should exit. Entering programming mode for the RKE fobs erases all previous RKE fobs.

This should cure the problem with the RKE fobs being programmed to 2 different trucks.

The RKE ( Remote Keyfob Entry ) is not a security feature, just a convenience item, so you are not disabling any actual security item.

Keyless remote entry


First try to replace batteries on remotes, 2. try reconfiguring the remotes only if the first doesn't work. And at last just try unplugging the negative of the vehicles battery plus check all your fuses the make sure that you're not have having any electric interference. Good luck !!!

Rek battery low warning light appears


I think you mean RKE battery. That means the car has detected that your keyless remote transmitter battery is getting weak. If you replace the battery yourself be careful not to damage the small metal tab that hold the battery in. Simply slide the battery out from underneath it.

RKE not working


There si a service bulletin that has us replce the module, remotes, antenna, and reprogram. If the car has, say up to 40k miles or so, the dealer should take care of this under warranty, since this is a common problem, and there is a bulletin for it. It has nothing to do with the anti-theft module as a post above states. The module is called the " Remote Control Door Lock Receiver" (RCDLR)-
