    A weird thing happened the other day. I opened the door lock with the
    remote got in and put the key in the ignition and turned it and the
    door locks clicked closed and the horn beeped. Turned the ignition off
    and back on and the same thing happened. Now, the remote switch won't
    lock or unlock the doors. I checked the fuse under the hood as well as
    the battery in the remote unit.They're both ok.
    Anybody have any ideas about this??

    Is the door switch working correctly? If it doesn't, the car doesn't
    know you got in, and it might relock the car, just like your Owner's
    manual said it should.

    I got the keyless entry working. I reprogrammed the receiver. At first
    I couldn't get the receiver to go into programming mode. Had to pull
    the fuse for the radio.That after checking the fuse for the power
    locks. All the fuses were ok. Then when I pushed the valet/disarm
    button the door locks cycled indicating program mode.
    Why did this happen in the first place? Gremlins. Cosmic alignment of
    the planets. I don't know but if it ever happens again I'll know how to
    fix it straight away and so will you.
    BTW, my library has Alldata car info. Lots of good info there and found
    directions to program this model (in accessories). I checked the
    Chilton and Haynes manual at the library. They didn't tell me jack!
    Said to see a dealer as special tools were required. Right!! A dealer
    probably would've charged me 150 clams and the entire service dept.
    would've laughed about it for days. Don't be a chump. Fix it yourself
    and save big.
    Good luck,
