We just picked up a 2005 LX. It's got one of those key fobs that the key swings into. Cute. But it doesn't work... At first I thought it might be the battery. I opened the fob and tested the battery and it shows 3.07 V. So I tried reprogramming the key (http://www.mpvclub.com/diy.php?id=43). Still no dice... The doors all lock and unlock after pressing the 'door close' switch three times, but pressing a button on the fob two times does nothing.

Just to add to the problem, when you turn the key in the driver's door and hold the extra second to unlock the rest of the doors, it doesn't--only the driver's door unlocks.

Fuse 17 'D.LOCK' looks fine.

Is there a way to test a transmitter to see if it actually is? Any other troubleshooting steps? Thanks.

Update: both issues solved!
1. I replaced the battery in the fob and it works now. I guess 3.07V is not enough? Who knew... Anyway, glad for the cheap fix!
2. The "door key cylinder switch" had failed. It's a switch that clips to the back of the lock cylinder (see images). I stole the one off my 2001, as I can't seem to find a replacement online. Does anyone have a different name or a part number that would help me locate one? Any help appreciated!
