Question about 2005 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

Both the key FOB's for my 2005 Pontiac G6 only unlock the doors, they will not lock the doors. Put new batteries in one key FOB but it doesn't work. Is there a way to reprogram without going to the dealer?

No need to reprogram....if they unlock but not lock then you have a problem with the wiring to/from the transceiver which will need electrical diagnose

if you think you have enough electrical and automotive experience let me know and I'll help you further

however, you will need a DVOM, a test light and a few hours to track down the possible source of the "shorts"

How to disarm a Pontiac G6.

Go into your settings on the radio and change it to RKE. The alarm will beep when you unlock the doors via your keys but stop once you turn the ignition on, the alarm will not arm unless you lock your doors either.

Pontiac Vibe is locked with no battery. How to unlock doors? Key doesn't work the locks.

I had the same problem yesterday. I removed the battery (that was near dead) to take to get tested, but I had locked the doors and closed the hood before leaving. When I got back with the new battery the key fob wouldn't work, and the key would not manually open the doors. I ended up having a mechanic friend reach up under the front of the car to manually release the hood (it took him about 20 minutes to figure it out), replaced the battery, and then the key fob worked again. I'm not sure why the keys wouldn't work in the door - any ideas there?

My handheld remote is not working. I have replaced the battery

Often times when you replace the battery in a remote fob you have to sync it to the car by locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key.
Check your owners manual.
