Hey is there anything I can do to fix the remote lock receiver? The old keys literally died and I had two new ones reprogrammed at the dealership. Unfortunately they still don’t work. I can open all the locks and start the car with the physical keys, but the buttons neither lock or unlock the doors. I suspect that there is a receiver somewhere in the vehicle that might be bad, but someone else said they replaced theirs and it still didn’t work. Am I correct when I call the key a transmitter and the lock a receiver?

There are you tubes for this very thing. Sorry I don't have a link right now, but try to search on YouTube for it- I'm pretty sure you'll find it.
It has to be programmed for the remote buttons.

Did they ever work after the dealership purportedly reprogrammed them?

Maybe try this on your own. Keep trying if it doesn't work the first time.

Get a new fob off Amazon or eBay, with or without the key, whichever is cheaper. Then reprogram all remotes together.

Here's how:

Have all remotes for the vehicle on hand. Make sure all the doors and rear hatch/trunk are closed during programming. Only need to use 1remote to get into program mode but all remotes must be programmed during the same session. Each step must be completed within 5 seconds.

1. Sit in the car with all doors/trunk tightly closed

2. Turn the key to the ON position, marked by "II" on the ignition bezel so the dash lights come on, then within 5 seconds press the "Lock" button on the remote for 1 second or so and release the button.

3. Turn the key to the OFF position, marked by "I" on the ignition bezel - dash lights go off.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times (A total of 4 times) -- each step must be done within 5 seconds of the previous step.

5. Upon the 4th turning of the key to "ON", press the lock button on one remote, the locks will make a cycling sound (clunk), locks will NOT lock or unlock at this point, they will just make a noise. The system is now in programming mode. Do not turn key off.

6. Within 5 seconds of entering programming mode and within 5 seconds of each other, press the lock button ON EACH remote you are programming, for a second or so and release. This step needs to be completed within 10 seconds. Each time a remote button is pushed, the locks should cycle. Up to 3 remotes can be programmed.

7. Turn ignition completely off and remove the key. Step out of car and close door. The remotes should be programmed and should work. If you have a trunk/hatch release, the button for this feature needs to be held for a few seconds before the trunk/hatch will "pop".


Here's a video that might also help.


Keep trying, it eventually does work, if your fobs are good. In the end, what finally worked for me when using the method that goes from II to 0 didn't work: Going from II to I is what did it for me.
