Keyless Entry/Door locking problems - possibly solved with aftermarket alarm? *HELP*
Okay; so amongst all of the problems I've been solving little by little on my GS4; there is one that is puzzling me to this day.
I haven't troubleshooted it to the max, but here is my problem:
- My key fob doesn't unlock the doors or lock the doors or unlock the trunk on my GS400. It's a 2000. The battery has been switched out in the remote; the red led's both light up in the remote and the car.
- I tried to program it 7 different ways including standing on my head while chewing gum and spinning and rubbing my stomach and I always get it to unlock and lock the doors but once I open my door and get out the car the 'programming' quits and doesn't 'save' in memory.
- The door mechanisms lock and unlock within the car. Just that the remote doesn't function at all. The car does start.
Now let's say if I get an aftermarket alarm i.e. Viper 7700?? and its wired and all that jazz; will I be able to completely 'disable' the factory keyfob and use the aftermarket alarms key fob to lock and open the doors?
Any help would be appreciated on this subject. I don't want to go and take it to an alarm/audio shop and have them tell me that I need to replace part by part of my system and end up spending a small fortune.
Thanks in advance!
