#8 of 9 Keyless Remote Entry Issues (LH gen I)
Oct 08, 2010 (10:34 am)
Got a strange thing going on with my '93 Eagle Vision. At least it's strange to me. Remote entry acts very inconsistently. The car only has 67,000 original miles on it and the key fobs didn't work at all. So, I get one off of eBay. I follow the instructions for programming. It all makes sense. When I first tried it, the system would not go into programming mode. The next morning it did though. But the system would not respond to the remote. I tried about an hour later and then the programming deal seemed to work. Exited programming and the fob worked very intermittently from mostly just inside the car. Half hour drive into town and then the fob worked perfectly even from a distance. Shortly after that though it didn't work any more. Try to enter programming mode again and nothing. This morning entered programming mode just fine. But again, no response from the fobs. Tried again later this morning and it wouldn't go into programming mode.
It is acting very inconsistently. The only thing that seems somewhat related might be morning temperature vs. afternoon/evening temperature. When it starts to get pretty warm it doesn't even go into programming mode. Haven't confirmed that connection yet but after several tries it's starting to fall into that pattern.
So... I doubt it's the fob. Perhaps the BCM? Or what about the remote entry receiver? I have a possibly insignificant question on that... according to spec books and other online sources, my car is supposed to have a receiver pn of 4759220. But it actually has 4469340 which is for '92-'96 Viper.
So, any thoughts on any of this??

have you verified the freshness of your remote batteries? they hint at being near dead with the better performance when cool. they are the coin type batteries.
your keyless entry module is directly on top of the dash, under the plastic valance cover, in the center windshield area next to the solar eye sensor. [if equipped] those can get cooked. I have a 94 vision tsi I bought in july 2010. there is a procedure for checking this system. let me know about the batteries first. todd in carlsbad, ca.
