    How does the broken lock respond to the fob? I have fobs that came with the car, but the broken lock does not open or close when I hit the buttons.

      Mine worked just fine. Sounds like yours are more bound up that mine were.

    Ditto, my 2003 EX has a remote entry fob already but the drivers side door won’t budge.

      Going to guess it is bound up with the lock itself. Not a fun project but you may need to pull the door apart to get it loose.

    I wish I would have looked on here first now I need to put my door back together where did you get your remote?

    Hello. I have seen some conflicting information about whether or not my 2008 Element EX can use this remote unlock fob. Both of my tumblers do not unlock the doors, or actuate the auto-unlock. But within my element, I can still push the inside lock button to lock and unlock the passenger door. If anyone can help me with this. I’d be super grateful.
