Not sure where to go with this, but I couldn't find anything in search. One of my remote keys seems to have developed a problem; it works only a part of the time now. Replacing the battery didn't make any difference. The second works OK. Also have replaced 2 lock\unlock relays in the past 6 months, now 1 is bad again. Are these problems related, and any ideas? Where to buy a relay without going to the stealer? The Standard replacement relays don't seem to be holding up. Thanks

That's what I was thinking. Has anybody replaced one? Any idea about cost? Thanks.

Match the part number on ebay - I have bought them for under $10. There are procedures here on this site to program it to your truck.

Open up the remote and clean the contacts that the rubber buttons make contact with. Contact cleaner is best but rubbing alcohol works too. Also clean the small black rubber spot on the button itself.

Where do I find the part #? Thanks

Found it hiding behind a dealer's name tag.

I tried that, but I guess I am puzzled as to how the rubber makes contact at all as it's usually non-conductive.

:( The reprogramming instructions in the Do-It-Yourself section seem to be incomplete. Does anyone have them they could send me? Thanks.

I couldn't get the reprogramming to work; it wouldn't go into the reprogramming mode. Any ideas? Thanks
