Could need reset to the car or just needs to be resynchronized. To resynchronize look in your manual. To be reset to car, go to a mechanic. Tell them the procedure should be listed in all data. That is a website that mechanics use to solve some problems. But not all mechanics have access to it though.....

I have a 1996 Mercury Sable 4 door. I cannot program my key less remote. I use to be able to use it until I had to get a new battery for it. I think that's when it stopped working.

I'm not 100% on this one but 99.9% sounds like the body control module was reset. The car would have to be brought to the dealer to SYNCH the BCM & security system. Possibly just SYNCH just
the remotes to the car. Good Luck, Frank M

My keyless entry remote stoped working after i changed the battery in my car so i changed the batterys in my remote also now

If you change the battery, and don't plug a 'memory' saver into the cigarette lighter, the result may mean that you have to take the vehicle to the dealer to have the keys and fob programmed to the computer, again.

Remote key fob suddenly stopped work

Check out page 57 of the manual:

If that doesn't work, it sounds like a trip to the dealer.

Keylesd remote stopped working on 2001 Jaguar vnden plas

Hi! Try cleaning the battery terminals on the remote. Check also the polarity of the battery (+) or (-). If you can, clean the button contacts also using a soft cloth moistened with 70% alcohol (clean both the buttons and the circuit board). Make sure it is dry before assembly.

Changing a battery on a Cobra 7777 remote control

The battery in the 7777 remote is a CR2032. If upon changing the battery the remote fails to work then you should stand next to the car and hold down both remote buttons for around 10 seconds to reactivate it. The remotes LED will flicker rapidly during this process. Keep holding both buttons until the LED stops flickering then release both buttons. The LED should now be on constant, press the larger of the two buttons and the remote should now be re-synced.
Note: This procedure is not to program the remote to the alarm, but to re-synchronise it.
