Keyless entry doesnt work. Changed batteries still nothing. Tried to reprogram. Won't go into programming mode.
Key fob broke years ago. Finally got around to ordering a new fob but truck won't accept it. Truck does go IN to program mode, but even after holding lock/unlock for up to FIVE Min., still no joy. Is there a way to test the receiver?
Key fob would not open or close the back doors. Panel on driver's side would not open passenger window.
