I Replied to your query saying that you were unable to find a solution to my problem.

I then queried whether my bank card details would be cashed, you did not come back to me on that question.

Hi Ken .

Can you lock the doors with the switch on the drivers door .

Need to know if the system is working with the inside door locking switch .

Same problem with the spare key fobs not locking .

Greg
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

In answer to your query, the inside door locking switch does lock the doors.

Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.
Hi Ken ..

Do you have a second keyfob to try as this is normally a bad keyfob issue .

Greg
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes I have tried the second key fob and that does not work either. Do you think it may be battery problems because as far as I know neither have been replaced during the life of the car which is now 10 years old, and do you think that both batteries could be "flat"? at the same time.

Ken

Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.
Yes this is possible Ken.

I would replace the battery's first as this is the cheapest route to take at this time, before
getting hooked up to a dealer scan tool to check for Immo malfunction codes .

After replacing the battery you may have to reprogram the keyfob, this will be in your owners manual ..

Ken after replacing the battery in both keyfobs and you still have the same problem, then you will have to get the immo system hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to check and test to see why you have this issue .

Please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
