hey guys..been having to push down really hard on the key fob to get the locks to open. any qiuck fixes for that? i've seen some stuff online of ppl putting metal or sumthin under the buttons to help.. n yes i just put a brand new battery so its not that!

also if you hold down the keys for a few seconds does it do anything different? just asking because when i do pop the locks open only the driver side opens.

thanks

Any hardware store has this. But foil will do if you have some glue to stick it there with. Dealer wants over a $100 for one of these.

Press unlock once, only drivers door unlocks, press twice all doors should unlock. This is factory default but can be changed in menu.

Did you do what I showed you? It could also be the two blue and gray connectors on the BCM that need cleaning for better contacts.

Did you see how I verify the ones I repair?

I forgot to mention when you add these little metalic circles to the buttons you should also clean the surface area of the contact. I use pure alchool.
