This is the first thread I have ever started, so please, be gentle.
I am having some issues with my Keyless Entry Remotes (both remotes) for my 2005 Tacoma. Sometimes the unlock/lock buttons just won't work. I have switched out the batteries several times (making sure to use a different brand each time) and I have tried to "reprogram" them both (the reprogram worked, but didn't fix the issue). I have noticed that if they aren't working, if I open up the remote and then close it back, the remote will almost always work right when I push the button, but this fix won't last. I know this doesn't make any sense as to why this would work, but it does almost everytime. I don't even have to remove and reinstall the battery, although I have done that before as well. I have tried finding a solution on the internet, as well as on other threads on here, but no luck. Is there anyone else having an issue like this, and if so, were you able to fix it, and how did you fix it? I'm really hoping one of you out there will know what's causing this, and might be able to provide a solution. My next step is to just buy new remotes, but I would rather not do that just yet. Plus, it doesn't make any sense that both would be dying at the same time. Thoughts?
