My 2003 Honda Pilot keyless...
My 2003 Honda Pilot keyless entry has stopped working. I've changed both batteries in both remotes, but the doors will not lock or unlock, except to use the key manually. If I use the driver's side interior lock button, all doors will lock and unlock electrically, but they won't respond to the fobs.

OK, thanks. I don't have the car with me right now. It's my daughter's car so I sent her this sheet and asked her to do the steps and see if that works. If not, is it likely that I have to replace the keyless receiving unit itself?

no, if it doesnt work you need to replace the transmitter. (remote)

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
OK, I'll see if that works first. But neither one of her remotes will work and I just thought it was unlikely that both would fail at the same time. We'll try reprogramming first. I'll let you know. Thank you.

ok, if both remotes dont respond after that then yes it would be the receiver.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
