If you have confirmed that the batteries in your key fobs are good and your accent lights still will not turn on. You may need to preform a Key Fob Re-Sync procedure.
Symptom: Receiving no response from the fob when pressing any button/ no accent light illumination when using the key fob ON button.
STEP 1: You will need a piece of wire or a paperclip fashioned as pictured. You will also need BOTH Key fobs. They will both need to be synced one right after the other.
STEP 2: Turn the module over and remove the 4 Philips screws that hold the housing together. Keep in a safe place as they are very small and can get lost easily.
STEP 3: Refer to Photo 3. The board containing the flashing blue LED is the Bluetooth dongle and should not be touched or shorted, this is displayed with an (X). We are looking for the highlighted section on the main circuit board with the 2 solder contacts within, it is the key fob sync circuit. These contacts are located on the bottom left corner of the circuit board with the wires exiting to the right. When the contacts on the board are shorted, the Blue LED will light.
STEP 4: Make sure that the remote module has power, then taking your wire or paperclip, touch both solder contacts. If performed properly, the Blue LED will light up and stay lit for about 5 seconds.
STEP 5: While the Blue LED is lit for the 5 seconds, take one key fob and press the OFF button (lower right), if the key fob is sending a good signal, the blue light on the circuit board will turn off.
Note: If the Blue light on the circuit board will not turn off when the key fob button is pushed, check the batteries inside the key fob. An indicator light on the key fob does not always mean it is sending a signal. If the light on the fob is dim or if it is flickering, then chances are the batteries are weak and in need of replacing.
STEP 6: Once the Blue LED light on the circuit board goes out, then repeat Steps 4 & 5 with the second key fob. Make sure that the On button (upper Left) is pressed instead of the off button so that the micro will load both fobs successfully.
Note: This procedure may need to be performed more than once if the sync procedure does not take the first time.
Note: If the Blue LED light on the circuit board will not come on when the contacts are touched, confirm power to the Module. If there is power to the Module, it is possible that the module may be defective and needs to be inspected by a CD technician.
Note: If the Blue LED light on the circuit board comes on, but one or both key fobs will not turn the light off, and the batteries in the key fobs have been verified as good, then there could be an issue with the Key fob and should be inspected by a CD technician.
