1. Get remote in known working range and push both the lock & unlock bottons at the same time- this will reset the unit. 2.Replace the battery in the remote. Your local radio shack should be able to assist.Repeat step one. 3. New battery - remote still not working - open unit and remove battery even if you didn't install it, you should have watched your Radio Shack guy do it. Proceed with cleaning your remote with Q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Use dielectric grease and apply to o-ring seals very very lightly if handy otherwise never mind. Now reassemble and repeat step 1. 4. It may be time for a new remote entry unit. Shop around, you can usually get an alarm system for your truck with the remote entry unit for just a fraction more than a replacement unit which is dealer only at this time. GOOD LUCK == == Also, if you have installed or had installed any type of window tint, this frequently interferes with remote entry systems and gps receivers. They make a high end type of tint known as ceramic tint which causes no interference, but it is very pricey and is not worth the initial buy. Hope this helps!

I do not know, I have a 1999 and mine quit just about two months ago, I have replaced the battery and that didn't help, maybe you should try your battery though. I will probably just order a new keyless entry.


can soneone help me? i lost all my remote keyless entry for my 2003 Chevy express van and i just got a new repacement. but i don't know how to program it.. can soneone help?


Look around the tailgate jams or dealership with your VIN #.


Thanks to no help from Chrysler or Dodge....I ended up figuring this one out for myself. I hope this will help you out. Start your Durango and leave it running for about two minutes. Once you do this, press both the lock and unlock button on your keyless entry (key fob) and do this three times, each time holding it pressed down for about two seconds each time. After this, your keyless entry should be reset and working. This had to be done on my Durango after I changed my battery.

let it be known that if you have stock keyless entry on a 96-98 civc ex that disconnecting the radio will disconnect the dome lights and your keyless entry. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THEM UNLESS you keep the old raio connectd and splice the new radio into the wires. go to installdr.com and they can help you


Is that the only problem? Chimes, dome, map, courtesy, keyless entry... all fine?


Go to a FORD/ LINCOLN Dealership, they can help you....... its written on the right arm of the trunk on a paper sticker




Just came back from dealer, cost is about $25.00 they can reset it for you. work's fine


I bought a 1998 ford explorer and the owners manual showed how to reprogram the keyless entry system if you have the manual read it if not you can look on line for that info i had to locate the computer module to find the factory 5 # code on it before i could reprogram mine.May be different on 2008 just trying to help.


AnswerLogic dictates that you go to the dealer and give him the vin# they should be able to help.Good Luck and Remember.Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.See My Bio For more information.On mine the control box for the keyless entry is up under the dash board, lay under the steering wheel and look to the very back and as close to the driver's side that you can, you will see it there. It will have 5 numbers on it, use these numbers for your keyless entry.


I was wondering the same thing and after searching the internet I found this very useful link: http://www.mysporttrac.com/MySportTrac/projects/LocatingYourKeylessEntry%20Code2001FORDSPORTTRAC.pdf Hope it can help.


The question is too general to answer completely. We can only say that it sometimes works, but it is best to have help.


Tell Honda to stop making cars that way! Seriously, I heard there's a way you can change the mode on your keyless entry, to make it just the lights. See your owners manual. Try typing "honk lock" on Google and see what pops up. Sorry I can't help you more.


first you cut the power wire to the alarm which should be connected to the battery and then you disconnect the battery fo at least 10 minutes


Go to "the install doctor" website and look it up. It requires removing lots of panels and the entire glov box to access the screws necessary to access the head unit. However, with the 96-98 civics, the keyless entry electronics are built into the factory head unit (if the car has factory keyless entry). The website should help you out or you may want to get it professionally removed especially if you plan to install an after market HU in the car. Hope this helps!! -I am MECP Cirtified

i'm forms bangladeshi, net visas for iraq i,m before in Kuwait 13 yer works for steel can you help me plz


This has to do with a bus which is located in the kick panel by the passenger door. This started after I lost my keyless entry. I have heard that it is the anti security system. Try locking then unlocking the doors twice with a key. This should disable it if it doesn;t then you might need to take it to a jeep dealer to get the keyless entry. when you hit it with that it should turn security off.


A lot of newer VW's have to be reprogrammed by the dealer just to restart after the battery has been completely drained. Sure hope it's not that, costs a lot from the dealer, sometimes they even have to come to the vechile itself to reprogram it since it won't come out of park sometimes. Good Luck!!!!


I have just replaced some batteries in my 2001 ml 320 keyless remote and its not activating my security system. How do I get the remote to work again? Please help!!!


as a ford tech i can say that yes! but it can only be done to your keyless entry pad and at time of key reprogram you will need two keys for this process to be performed ask your ford or Lincoln service advisor for info he can help!!
