As long as it is working it is reliable but to be on the safe side it might not hurt to have a spare. you can get them at any Lexus dealership that has a parts dept. they usually cost around 100- 150 dollars

Replaced CR2032 battery in my pacificas keyless remote but it still wont work. I did not drop nor did water hit the remote. Was working fine one minute then died


First thing to do is check with your local Dodge dealer and see if the keyless remote is still under warranty. I had this same problem with a Dodge Durango Keyless remote. Problem was the + and - neg. connecters from battery to circuit board broke the solder connection going to the small circuit panel in the keyless remote, if this is the problem with yours, go the Radio Shack and buy a small 15watt soldering iron and solder for PC circuit boards and resolder it and it should fix the problem. If this did not fix it, the only thing to do is buy a new remote at your local Dodge dealer

Can a keyless entry remote work properly after dropping in a bucket of water?


As with just about any electronics, they don't mix well with water. The best thing to do would be to not push any buttons and remove the battery and open the remote so it can fully dry out before seeing if it still works.

Have verified that my newly purchased 03 kia sorento has remote keyless entry, but professional locksmith cannot get new remote to program. Remote is Bontec T009, pretty sure it is correct one. Could it be...


Yes the 03 and up sorento has a keyless remote entry, You do not need to reset the ECU, you however need to reprogram the remote trasmitter to your car so they communicate, otherwise it will never work if you do not program it. You will need to take this to a kia dealership with the remote transmitter. They may or may not charge you for a fee. However I did had a remote, and it became damaged when my kid drop it in the fish tank. I was able to get it done at the dealship, 35 for the remote, and 50 for service fee. I did however found some link referal to manually do it yourself, Please check this forum out http://www.kia-forums.com/2003-2010-sorento-forum/34549-remote-keyless-entry.html. For me, I did not bother, because I did not want to take the chance to mess up something else.

Intall Remote Keyless Entry System in an 02 Honda Accord


You got the Wrong Information! Go to Wal Mart and Purchase a "Bulldog Security Keyless Entry" System for your Car. It will cost you a Quarter of the Price and is Just asw Reliable as the Factory Unit! Got one on My Truck with Remote Start also and it works GREAT! Should cost about $50.00 Bucks or so.

Keyless remote


Disconnect the battery from your car (negative cable only) overnight. Make sure you have your radio reset code before doing so.

Then reconnect after 10 hours, and make sure you have remote handy as alarm may go off. Then if that doesnt fix it, go to driver door, then insert master key, pull up on handle first all the way and hold it. Then turn the key slowly all the way so the doors unlock and continue turning the key. This will reset the central locking system as yours may have gotton stuck. then remove key let go of handle, open door and try to lock and unlock doors from switch inside car.

Then try remote. It should work, this is what the dealer will do and charge you about $350...if it doesnt work order a new remote b/c yours may have become damaged by liquid or dropping?

Have a great day,

Thanks,

Mark

Keyless Entry Key Doesn't Work


Regarding the remote transmitter issue: Take the remote transmitter to your Toyota dealer. Ask them to test your transmitter with their hand-held RF detector. All Toyota dealers are required to have one of these devices. The RF detector will test the remote to see if it is indeed transmitting the proper RF out of the transmitter, and the strength of the RF signal. If there is no signal, the remote has failed (unfortunatly common), and the remote will need to be replaced and reprogrammed to the vehicle. I do this quite regularly, and rarely do I tell customers taht they need to spend 800 dollars for such a simple diagnosis/fix. The keyless system is very reliable. I rarely change the ECU for the keyless, unless somebody somehow gets the ECU wet, then it def needs replaced. Hope this helps.
