Does the second remote work?  Have you changed the battery and then done any reset required by the manual?  Ten year old batteries are probably shot.

Doors not opening even if they are unlocked


My 2009 Sebring does the same thing occasionally but only the drivers door gets stuck (dead locked - even though the locks appear to pop up).
The solution I have found once this happens is:
1) The car needs to be driven (crawl in thru the passenger door) -even just a short distance
2) Engine shut off & doors locked with remote (after you've exited from the passenger door of course)
3) Leave turned off for 10 minutes
4) Doors will now open when unlocked with the remote

Power lock


check door locks fuses and relays.if all is good and you cant operate door lock buttons manually problem could be in the generic electronic module.if door locks dont work from the remote battery could be dead in remote transmitter.try to reset door locks control module first obtain all remote transmitter.sit inside vechicle with all doors closed.switch ignition from off to on 8 times in 10 seconds. doors should lock then unlock.when this procedure works then press any button on any of the remote transmitter doors should lock and unlock.if all fails let dealership fix..

Drivers door will not open with key or battery hand piece,,other doors okay with both. 2002 crv


-If the problem is that keyless remote does unlock or lock door, but the lock lever still move when pulling up and down by hand. Door still open and close with both inner and outer, then might the driver door lock actuator is bad. The actuator lock and unlock the door for you when using the keyless remote or door lock/unlock switch.

-if you try using the key to unlock door and the key doesn't turn the door cylinder, then you have a bad door lock cylinder.

-if the lock lever doesn't move up or down and you can't open door using any handle, then you got a bad lock latch assembly.

I'm not sure what the issue is but hope this helps you.

1996 chevy corvette passive keyless entry light stuck on


This is an indication the passive reciever has been set to off. Press and hold the door button on the hand held passive remote for 2 seconds the door locks should cycle locked then unlocked. The passive indicator should go out and the system should see the remote when you walk away from the car (dors lock, horn blows). If nothing happens test the hatch button (if you ha a coupe) to see that the remote battery is good.

I am not able to use the hand held lock/unlock now. The driver door lock tries to work, but it won't. If I push the lock down manually, it will lock all locks. What could be wrong?


Note:
Entering the programming mode cancels all learned keyless remotes, so none of the
previously programmed remotes will work. You must reprogram all of the keyless
remotes once you are in the programming mode. You must complete each step within 5 seconds of the previous step to keep the
system from exiting the programming mode.

1. Turn ignition switch to ON (II)
2. Press the LOCK or UNOCK button on one of the remotes. (An unprogrammed
remote can be used for this step.)

3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK (0)
4. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 two more times using the same keyless remote used
in step 2

5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II)
6. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button the same remote. Make sure the power door
locks cycle to confirm you are in programming mode.

7. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each remote you want to program. Make
sure door locks cycle after you push each remote button to confirm system has
accepted the remote.

8. Turn the igniton switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.
9. Test remote(s)

Two of my door locks will not unlock w/ remote or inside button.


The door lock actuators or 'solenoids' have failed. This seems to be pretty common on Windstars - I've just replaced a couple on my '02. (Ironically, the original batteries in the remote fobs are still going strong, they lasted longer than the actuators). You can buy third party replacement parts, the front door ones are 'handed' driver & passenger, but a common part will work for both sliding doors. I don't have instructions for removing the door panels, but search online - it's not tricky. The original actuators are riveted in place - you'll need to drill out these rivets. The new actuator can be held in place with a nut, bolt & couple of washers. Replacing these parts isn't too difficult - the first one took me about 1.5 hours, but once I knew what I was doing, the second one took about 0.5 hours. Good luck.

My remote for the keyless entry does not work.


does trunk button work? panic button?
here's 2003 info:


  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter.
  • Driver door module (DDM).
  • Go To Pinpoint Test G .

SECTION 501-14: Handles, Locks, Latches and Entry Systems 2003 Town Car Workshop Manual

  1. NOTE: When the first keyless entry remote transmitter is programmed, all other keyless entry remote transmitters are erased.
    Press any button on the transmitter to be programmed.
  1. If additional keyless entry remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 2 within 7.5 seconds.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.

We have a 2007 Entourage and you cannot lock it with the car running. We installed a remote starter and it will not lock the doors when it is remotely started. Can this feature be disabled?


i think that this is to prevent you from locking your keys in the car with the engine running.
Some remote starters have a feature that when the car is running (and in park) you can hit the remote start button twice for one second each - then you can take the key out of the ignition and still have the car running.
At this point....if you would hit the 'lock' button on your door the doors would immediately unlock. However, if you get out of the car and close the door leaving it unlocked and then you hit the 'lock' on your original car remote the doors will lock and stay locked. So now the car is running the doors are locked and you have the keys in your hands. Then you can run into the store or house real quick with your car locked.
Once you come back, you hit 'unlock' on the original car remote. the doors will unlock - you can get it - and then before hitting the brake put the key in the ignition and turn it (dont crank it) as if you had when originally using the remote starter.
Maybe this will work for you.....
