Remote Keyless Entry TSB 040852002
Dated Mar 30, 2004[/B]

Here's what I gleaned while reading the TSB upside down, and listening to the Service Rep paraphrase what he saw.

It covers several different cars including the SSR. I didn't see any notation indicating that the problem was limited to a range of VIN #s.

Before the dealer can replace any parts they have to follow the service manual proceedures to determine what is, or isn't, wrong.

It can be releated to the transmitters and lists part numbers to be ordered. It specifies not to order remotes from what I assumed was the usual place and specifies where the dealer should procure them, with a list of what the correct part numbers to be ordered are.

It also specifies that should the proceedures not remedy the problem, that the reciever might need to be replaced.

The part numbers of my remotes were the same as those on the list of correct P/Ns to be ordered. 15184352 & 15184353. These two were for the SSR, and correspond to remotes one and two. The other part numbers listed, were related to other model cars. As I recall there were either six or eight numbers in all. Two per model car.

The symptoms for my SSR
Intermittent function of the remote.

Pressing both lock and unlock to syncronize the rolling code dose not help.

If the window is down, I can stick my arm in the cab and press the unlock button many times, and the car may start responding. It will keep responding as long as I keep working the remote. Pause for a short time and it stops functioning again.

Speculations:
This is really sounding like a problem with the reciever not being cleanly programmed. I've had similar problems with a rolling code garage door remote and receiver. (Getting that right seemed to be related to the length of time I pressed the TX button while programming the reciever.)

The business about ordering remotes from a specific place has something behind it. I can't figure out if it's and accounting issue or if the normal supply chain is polluted.

EDIT: This is on 2004 #6043 maybe we can bracket the serial numbers with this problem.

Keyless remotes post mortem

Today my SSR went in to have the Remotes diagnosed.

It's official now, they don't work. The dealer has orderd new remotes, per the TSB.

I did get to read the TSB from end to end. The ordering of remotes from a specific source is to allow the shipment of specially selected key fobs. The TSB also states that this is an interim solution. The final solution involves replacing the reciever, with a new model/version. Not yet available.

Key Fob Problems

I to have gone through the same problems with both of my remotes.

I now have the two new remotes for a few days and I might say I did not think this would be the problem, but they seem to be working just fine. I really thought it was the receiver, but just shows we don't know it all.

Update: I now have had my new keyfobs for 3 days. They work, but I have to unlearn the habit of unlocking with the key.
