KEYLESS entry not working...

So my keyless entry has stopped working. I checked the remote by taking it to orielly's and confirming that it was transmitting.

What should i look for next besides fuse?

Thanks!

Travis

Keyless entry is overrated... Just use a key. OR leave it unlocked...

Did you try the passenger Front door to disable alarm?

Replace the disarm switch on the back of the lock cylinder. IIRC, it's about $30 from the stealership. Or you can try the junkyards.

That'll atleast take care of your driver door not disarming the alarm.

From what I remember, there Isn't a disarm switch on the Drivers Door. Passenger Front and Rear Hatch only...

Oh there is. I've replaced mine. My key now disarms the alarm from the driver door. Didn't disarm it when I bought my 2nd ZJ.
