1993 SLE is on a distinguished road
Default Key FOB issues

Ok So i have both fobs for my car, they are the orignal, they both have new batteries, but the one that I dont use, has a VERY weak signal its pretty much useless, the fob that I use all the time will unlock the car from about 5-10 feet away but sometimes I have to press the button 3-4 times before it unlocks, but the FOB WILL NOT lock the car or Pop the trunk at any distance? is the FOB just bad, i mean the unlock works which is most important to me, and not being able to lock really dosent matter since i lock the car before i close the door,but having to just the key to get into the trunk is killing me

BTW The button on the door inside the car works to open the trunk

any ideas??

sure they wear out over time. nothing last forever right. check your local dealer
to see how much to have a new one programed. I have also heard of people
buying off of ebay and programing it themselves. I think there is a thread on here
about it.
question? does your trunk have a valet switch?
and now for the big question??????

What does the letters FOB stand for

A short chain or ribbon attached to a pocket watch and worn hanging in front of the vest or waist.
An ornament or seal attached to such a chain or ribbon.
93'* don't have valet switches. Take both fobs apart, clean them very well with contact cleaner or alcohol, and reassemble them with new batteries.

New ones are sold on E-bay all the time for around $10, which includes information on how to program them to your specific car.
