Keyless entry system loses memory.
You can do the re-program steps. The FOB will work for about 10 minutes,then loses memory again.
How is this repaired?
What causes this problem?
Keyless Entry/ Start only works after a door has been manually opened or unlocked. It only works after that when the vehicle is activated and only a few minutes after the vehicle has been deactivated.
Remote key stopped working? Only works after manually locking the door, then works for about 30seconds after?
Key fob stopped working. Will only work for a few minutes after manually opening the door with a key
Key FOBs program well and work for short period (continuously while car is running/powered). After a few moments, car will not activate on FOBs commands.
Both fobs suddenly will not unlock or lock the unit unless.....the truck is started and then it'll work for about 1 minute after shutting off the truck. Very frustrating.... So the only solution is to replace the fobs and or replace the transmitter?
Both key fobs failed to unlock, lock, start truck. Problem occurred same day for both fobs. Not diagnosed or fixed yet
keyless stop working. After door is opened manually, keyless starts to work again only for 1 minute.
