The remote may have come un-synchronised. (Due to a heavy knock or interference from a radio transmitter source. Like someones speed radar detector, or when the battery went flat.)

Consult your dealer on the synchronising process. This is an involved process but easy enough to do yourself at home!

Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

I had a similar problem with my Lexus. I went to Lexus and they re-programmed it. Somehow it got corrupted or lost the code. This may sound stupid but are you sure it's not the batery? Is it the glow type?

Programming the garage door opener


I know what the problem is but never tried to resolve it. I have a 1998 XJ8 and went through the same problem. After numerous attempts to program the 4 channel built in opener I researched the problem and learned that the system in the car actually changes the code after every use. It's a security feature built in to the system. I simply started keeping my remote in the car.

There must be a way to disable the automatic randomizer so it retains the code from your remote opener everytime. Check with the dealer to see if it can be disabled and you will be in business. Please post the info if you get it.

Good Luck!
