Keyless Entry Problems

Has anyone been having problems with their keyless entry? On my 2010 ram, the lock feature and the remote start feature work fine. I have been having problems with the unlock portion. It will not unlock 9 times out of 10, doesn't matter if I'm 30 feet away or 1 foot away . If I use the remote to start the truck, it will unlock it: if its running. With both remotes; I have the same problem. I have an appointment to get this checked out, I was curious if others have had a similar problem and what the result was. Thanks.

My 09 sometimes will not unlock as well, hit lock then unlock most times gets it to unlock, too close to side of truck seems to be worse.I have not taken it back for this yet.Been like this since new, 38000 kms ago.

Do you guys have your evic display programmed to unlock/lock all four doors at once. when I changed that in the evic settings that fixed mine. one push of the button and they opened right up.

Pop the fob apart and clean the battery contacts. Check battery voltage while open.

Thanks for the ideas. Mine is set up to open all 4 doors at once. I have the same problem with both fobs. The one I actually use and the one that hangs on the key rack all of the time.

If the fob is getting enough voltage to operate the "lock" feature, why would the voltage be any different for the "unlock" feature?

Maybe the contacts on the "unlock" part of the switch are not making a good contact.

My 2009 Ram does the same thing. The lock operation works fine but it doesn't always unlock. Have to hit the button a few times.

My 09 operates just the same as yours. Lock works every time - unlock sometimes takes multiple clicks.

I'm wondering if the factory has addressed this problem?

There is a flash for 2010 and 2011 but not 2009. Read somewhere that the 09 supplier and part was slightly different so the software would need to be different. So no flash for the 09's.

Got the same issue here and it's not the fob itself causing the problem.
