Why do I have to push my car remote unlock button 5 times before it will open?
If you have to push the buttons on your car remote several times before the doors lock or unlock you might need a new rubber pad for your remote. Sometimes this simple fix does the trick. Inside your keyless entry remote there is a rubber pad that connects all the rubber buttons together. On the back of the button parts (especially GM remotes) there is a conductive metal paint that can wear away over time. The cheapest and easiest fix for this problem is to replace the rubber pad in the remote. You can simply snap open your existing remote, remove the remote board and the rubber pad, insert the new rubber pad, replace the remote board and snap your remote back together. 9 times out of 10 it will work as good as new.
