SOURCE: I'm using a kwikset smartcode

I have reviewed the installation instructions for the Kwikset 907-11P; here is a link to it:

http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/40486-02

I would recommend verifying that the batteries are new and installed correctly. I did not see anything about an insertable/removable battery pack or the need to hold a lock button while changing the batteries. Under normal circumstances there is no need to reprogram the lock codes when batteries are changed.
I did see that if the bolt does not extend when the lock button is pressed that you need to reprogram the handedness of the door (see Step 4.9).
On page 9 of the installation instructions is Troubleshooting tips and a contact number for Kwikset USA :
1-800-327-5625. I'd recommend calling them directly if, after going through the installation instructions, that you have the same problem.
Good luck!

Re-assemble a kwikset front door lever and knob type latch


Since the exterior side of the lock only has a keypad and no lever, I'm not sure what you mean by the "outside lever". Here is a clear, easy to follow video of the installation. Please carefully review each aspect of your installation against it to see if you can spot an installation mistake:

I have the kwikset keypad that is supposed to light up and it did for awhile since I've had it for several months and now all of a sudden it won't light up. The batteries are fine and I tried new batt


"My keypad won't light up when door is locked when you push lock won't light up green."

Try this:

To make the keys light up when you want to enter your code, you have to push the lock button on the keypad first. If the keypad light never comes on, open the door and manually lock the interior lock, then press the keypad lock button. The above instructions should then work.

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

None of the buttons on the device will work. Batteries are fine and blinking light inside appears normal. Cannont lock the device from outside or get the code to unlock the door.


Check to be sure the keypad is still connected to the inside assembly. There is only a one year warranty on the electronics and Kwikset will not sell the electronic parts separately. If you want to replace it, there are other brands that are key-compatible with Kwikset. You'll still have the same problem if the electronics breaks though. The main difference is that other brands don't move the bolt with battery power, they just enable it to be moved by hand.

Kwikset keypad deadbolt will not lock or unlock. Batteries OK.


I have included a link to the installation instructions for the Kwikset 909 lock. I think that if you go through the installation instruction routine carefully, you will solve your problem. Pay particular attention to Step 8, the synchronization routine.

How do i change the entry code on my Kwikset 909 keyless lock? Just bought the house and want to made a code number of MY choosing. Thanks.


slide the cover off the interior of the door. you will see a program button. you can program two individual codes. to program the first code, press the program button once, then enter your code on the exterior keypad and press the lock button. for the second code you would press the program button twice, then enter the code and press the lock button.

The backlights on our Kwikset 909 are not lit. Is this controlled by one of the switches or could something not be installed correctly?

Batteries last only 2 -3 days in keypad and batteries have warped and torn wrapping on the outside label as if they had been over-heating.
