Default Remote(Lock/Unlock/Panic) key not working

I bought a honda pilot 2005 EXL from an used car dealer.I noted the remore key was not working.The dealer said could be the battery needs to be replaced. Then i came home, changed the battery(same model # battery), but still not working. Dealer who sold the car is 150 miles away. So cant go back to him. Not sure if this key needs re-programming or something

Welcome to the HP>org fam.
too bad you remote don't work, what makes it worst is the fact the he is far far away. Buty try bringing it to a HONDA stealer.. Just to see what they might say about...or test it..etc...And don't forget to post some pic's\\
at least just to se what color you got...

before you bring it to the dealer, check if your central lock is working. if all 4 door locks work when you press the unlock and lock button of your driverside door switch then yes it must be the remote. if one of more doorlocks is/are not working then you need to change the locking mechanism before you can have your remote working again.

I bought a black Honda pilot EXl 2005. Inside Beige leather.
The driver side central locking switch is working fine.
It just the remote lock/unlock.
Also my TPMS indicator is not not turning off.Its showing up after like 10-15 minutes i drive. Got to test the tire pressure too when i take it to the dealer.

i went to Good year tires, and they told that valve stems are missing snd because of corrosion all 4 TPMS sensors need to be replaced. They told it costs 325(parts)+85(for labor). For now they re-set the indicator though. Since TPMS indicator problem was existing when i bought from dealer, i need to ask the dealer.
not sure what I can do if he says he will not bear the expense for fixing TPMS problem.

I have a problem with the remote keys - they will not lock or unlock the doors. It happened a few days after installing a new car battery. I initially thought it might be the key's battery, but my wife's car key remote worked for a few days before it also quit working. I was wondering if I might have done something to cause this to happen?
