    Alright, so I’ve been having issues with one of my remotes over the last few months (on my wife’s 1998 Pontiac, same remotes for most GM cars around this time, maybe up to 2004? not sure exactly). Sometimes it would work perfectly, but most of the time it either wouldn’t work at all or it would take a dozen button presses to fix.

    I tried new batteries numerous times but it never helped for more than 2 days. Tried cleaning all the contacts inside with electronic cleaner, that would help for 2 days. Finally I got out my DMM and tested resistance across the little black button pad things and found it to be super high, 5 Mohms if I remember correctly. Don’t know what it is supposed to be, but seeing as how they were all the same reading and they are supposed to complete a circuit, I figured maybe if I could lower the resistance the remote would work better.

    That’s all you need, replace the rubber mat with the buttons. The graphite material on the back side of the button is wearing out in time.

    WOW, I remember doing this with my grandmothers television remote when I was very young. It was only then that I stopped getting in trouble for taking things apart, lol. Good tip. I’m sure there’s a more elegant way of doing it, but if it works, it works. :thumbsup:

    Were you able to get the remotes programmed? I’m having the same problem on a 2005 Suburban – the door locks cycle before I release the unlock button.I wonder if changes to other Driver Information Center (DIC) settings might adversely affect the key fob programming. Does anybody out there have any comments?For those of you that have programmed key fobs were you able to follow the instructions above?

    Has anyone heard of (or experienced) the problem above? The original poster and I both experienced the same problem. The doors lock/unlock out of sequence when following the programming instructions.
