When I picked up my new (to me) '98 SLE a few days ago, one of the keyless entry remotes did not work. The dealer assured me it just needed a new battery (a claim which I unfortunately believed). Well guess what... I put in a new battery today, and I got nothin'.
I've read a couple topics on reprogramming new remotes in the TechInfo section, but my question is this... do I know for a fact that my current one is fried? It won't work with a new battery, but do the remotes ever lose their memory somehow? I'd also appreciate any recommendations on the best places to obtain replacement remotes. AutoZone quoted me ~$70 and I'm sure a dealer would be more... if that'* the range I'm looking at, I think I'll just live with one working remote! TIA -
