keyless entry doesn't work on a 1999 Toyota Avalon, the battery is good, what else can I do to fix the problem?

Asked by Aug 29, 2015 at 04:07 PM about the 1999 Toyota Avalon 4 Dr XLS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have tested the battery on the keyless entry fobs and both are good. But the car doesn't respond. I want to fix it myself to save money but the owner's manual only tells me to go to my authorized Toyota repair shop. What else can I do?

My initial thought is that your car is 16 years old and (assuming you have the original keyfobs)....There just might be something faulty, broken or worn in the inners of the fobs themselves. Replacing them may be the answer...I'm afraid to ask what Toyota would charge for this though, since they have to be programmed to the car.

If you have replaced the batteries, the remotes may just need re-programming. On older Toyotas you could do it yourself. Here's a link that may help. http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/154-1st-generation-1995-1999/214686-help-1998-avalon-remote-key-entry-system.html
