    2004 camry, the remote to the alarm stop working, was not the battery.Had it checked. I called Toyota Customer Service and they sent me to dealer so I went where I purchased the car. they could not get it to work and said they think it was in the wiring and it would cost $300.00 to do a complete check plus any repairs that could cost up to $800.00. I have had several things go wrong inside (speaker cover cracking & falling in, fabric tearing away from the side, the top console that works the moon roof fell out), it feels like it is dientergrating inside.A Dealer did repair the speaker/fabric no charge but that's it. Toyota intergrity has gone down the toilet, this was my first & last one. I only have 31,000 miles and the warranty is out but this should not be happening, my last car i had 11 yrs and nothing inside ever fell apart.

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.

Disconnecting the battery erases stored memory,after you connect the battery put the key in the ignition cylinder and turn the driver door switch on(open) and off (closed), on (open),the entry,exist function then becomes complete, and the return operation can be operated,

2008 HHR Remote Starter not working


Is this an issue with all 2008 HHR remotes??? Highly doubtful , probably the vehicles keyless entry system . Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having the keyless entry system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Do you know what a DTC is ?
The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors, or release the rear compartment lid when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Remote rear doors (Panel only)
• Vehicle locator/panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR
• BCM

Guessing will not fix this .

I replaced batteries in keyless remotes for 2002 chevrolet monte carlo ss. how do I resynchronize the keyless remotes?


Hello: To resynchronize the keyless entry close all doors, key out of ignition. Hold lock and unlock buttons till the doors (all) lock then unlock. If the transmitter still doesn't work you have other problems. Go to auto zone they can check your transmitter to see if it is working.

The radio may have a theft lock activated....unlocking it may be a pain. As for the keyless entry (assuming it's factory), make sure you start with a new battery in the remote(s) and try the steps on this page:

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working


The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
