My keyless entry did the same thing on my cobalt. There are two tongs that get displaced. Atleast that's how it is in mine. I find if i hit the clicker off my hand a couple times it works. Sounds funny i know but that's the only thing i've found to work

You can take the car to the dealer and he can reprogram the remote for you. Or you can buy the programming instructions for $9.95 from here:

You will need a working key to reprogram your remote.

SOURCE: keyless entry not working

Hi I am Vortash .. within is a small cell battery and they last on average about 12 to 14 months mine is actually 2 tears saying that but you get the drift .. some are easy and you merely split the fob apart and replace the battery .. use rubber gloves they are prone to static from the human body.. others however are pains and they have to be taken to your dealer where he will probably try to sell you a new one at some ridiculous price .. some of them need reprogramming as they forget the code .. so it's one of those grey areas that dealers love .. trouble is you can go to the exspense of replacing the key only to find out that the fault is the car system after all .. So unfortunately again this is one of those situations that the dealership must be involved .. as most keys can only be aquired for the car from a recognized dealership .. they say its not a monopoly but a security reason.. so they have the capability to test your system before you go to the exspense of replacing a very exspensive key that you didn't really need .. hope this is of help .. regards Vortash ( [email protected] ) and this is how I know lol

SOURCE: Keyless remote wont work

try to reprogram the remotes using these instructions..........
i assume for 02 explorer not th 05 frestyle listed (although similar procedure)
Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.

  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered and key code programming is not active.
  1. Open the door, then press the driver door lock control switch UNLOCK button.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in ON. If the program mode is sucessfully entered the doors will lock and unlock to confirm.
  1. Press any button on a remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock all doors to confirm that the remote transmitter is programmed. All remote transmitters must be programmed within 20 seconds of each other. Up to four remote transmitters can be programmed to the vehicles security module each time programming mode is entered.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Late Build or Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Early Build in this section.
  1. NOTE: Exiting is acknowledged by locking and unlocking the doors if at least one remote transmitter has been programmed.
    Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following has occurred:
    • The key transitions to OFF.
    • 20 seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last remote transmitter was programmed.
    • Four remote transmitters have been programmed.

I just bought a new battery for my 2005 Softail Deluxe; I road yesterday (10/20 miles) as I was finishinng the run, the bike shut off; could this mean the battery was not fully charged? Will a trickle...

Good idea put it on a trickle charge, however, the battery had enough charge init to start the bike initially, and the bike should have charged the battery after 10-20 miles, worth checking the charge rate to the battery from the rectifier,

Got a new battery yesterday on my 2000 Mit, but today it will not

Sounds like starter solenoid. Use a voltmeter and put it on B+ wire from starter relay to solenoid. Then crakk the vehicle . If your getting 12v there than its the starter solenoid. if there is no B+ there than check ign. switch, neutral safety switch,starter relay .
Good luck ..... you may want to give the battery a 3 min charge before testing.
