Default 94 Passport Keyless Entry Not Working

My keyless entry started working less and less about a year ago now it dosent work at all. I've tried changing the batteries in the remote and nothing. Is there a bad sensor or something?

its not a bad sensor. usually it all comes down to the remotes. i noticed with honda, the remotes crap out over the years, but if you take good care of it and put new GOOD batteries, it should last a while. well does it still work at all or sometimes?

It hadn't been working at all for about 2 months then one day I switched out the battery and it work for the rest of the day. Now nothing again. I'm thinking that could've just been a fluke because I wasn't even trying before. I guess I could try another brand new battery. The new battery that i put in a few weeks ago was sittting in my draw for a while.

try this
open up the battery
check out the battery contacts, bend them toward the battery a little, or put a small piece of carboard in there to press the metal contacts toward the battery better
its a fairly common problem for the battery contacts to slowly get bent away from the battery, causing exactly what you are talking about
good luck, hope it works

You are the man! That was exactly the problem. I had to bend the coil contact over a little and it had some green deposite built up on the end of it that I cleaned off.

Thanks,
Nick
