Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

So you get the same results from both fobs?

How long does it work?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I've followed the instructions to the T. but it doesn't open the doors
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

Prior you said it worked but failed after time passed. Now the program will not work at all?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

A failure of the lock module could be to blame here.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris

Well what's going on is the key fobs I can program only temporary it won't work after I leave the car it says battery low But I change the battery twice to no avail long as the key fob in the socket it will start but after you leave the car it won't open the door and car won't start is there an special batt for the key fob
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

There is not a special battery. The radio antenna module is what accepts the signal from the fobs. It is saying the battery in the fob is low because it is getting a weak signal. Since both fobs do this then the module is the more likely failure.
