my key fob remote not working anymore,replaced batteries in both and still no go,cleaned contacts,no go.one of my remotes opens/closes door sometimes,what is wrong?hate to let dealer mess with my car...
The same thing happened on my wife's 2003 SX. One remote worked , and the other stopped working. The dealer replaced the non working remote, and it was covered under the warranty, she has 15,000 miles on the car. Make sure you bring in both remotes in, they have to reprogram them.
There is a problem with the remote censor in the car on the 2002s, not quite sure what it is, or if its been fixed, but basicly from what I can figure out the censor is on the under chasey of the car and can be exposed to the elements and if flooding occures can get wet and will short out.
I got the extended warranty and its been golden to me.
I blew my speakers a few months ago and it was covered, with the exception of a small deductable.
One of the boards on one of my remotes died too, I have yet to replace it. It too is under the extended warranty, so I'm not too only concerned as long as I have my other remote, which I am sure I have at least another 2 years life out of. Seems as though the smaller electronics in the vehicle seem to have a shorter life expentancy.
My thermometer and clock died, the power windows, the climate control lights are dying slowly - seems to be that their might be a defect in the wiring harness somewhere. I checked all my fuses and they look fine but for so many minor electrical issues to happen in 2 years to my 2004 aerio - seems like Suzuki got it going on mechanically but lets leave the electronics up to specialists like Sony and Samsung!
I just purchased my aerio in September and in December both remotes went out! I changed the batteries and reprogrammed according to the manual, no go. I had to take it to the dealer where they just ordered 2 more remotes. I had read in a few forums about the remote problem with this vehicle so I was kind of expecting it, just not at 2000 miles! I love my aerio and what not, but d### it seems like Suzuki could have spent a little more money on the remote system.
Mine stopped working at around 30,000 so I had the dealership look into it when I took the car in for its service. They gave me a new one but they couldn't that one to work either. Then I ran the programming sequence in the manual when I got home and it started working.
Thanks for the helpful hints on programming my key fob, but I found that for mine to work for my car I had to have the door closed, put the key in, turn it to ON, take it out, open and close the door 3 times (make sure it's closed when done), put the key in and turn it to ON again, take it out, press the unlock button and then it worked. It's really sad that the instructions that came with the car don't work - and I don't want to have to pay to go to a dealer! So hopefully this helps the next person when their instructions don't work. Another variation in how to program these Suzuki Key Fobs!
The procedure in the owners manual and service manual is wrong. There is an updated bulletin on programming the fobs with the correct procedure.
Also...2002, and some 2003 models have a keyless module that is NOT programmable. If the fobs that come with the car quit working and new batteries don't fix it you have to replace the remotes, and the keyless module together. The new one is programmable. You can tell what you have by what color it is. I forget which is which though. I *think* if the box is gray it's non-programmable, and if black you can program it.
