    I have tried starting engine, removing key and pressing button. I used the car on friday morning and remote worked fine, then within an hour it just stopped and LED light started to flash slow. I have another remote key that stopped working approx 4 months ago (also still opens doors and starts engine), but that one still flashes rapidly. I have tried putting battery in upside down. I'm very confused ????

If the key had gone faulty, the key code must be re programmed on the vehicle computer. This can be done only using a PIWIS tool, available at the dealer or at a qualified Porche garage.
Try also the following reset:
turn ignition on,
turn off.
remove the transponder from the column
push any button on the fob within 6 seconds.
This procedure will reset the key synchronizing again with the vehicle computer.

    If you put the battery upside down you risk to short the key remote and break it.

    When the key fob is falshing slower it means that is not synchrronised with the car.

    Try also the procedure below:



    1. Unlock your car using the key

    2. Open car door ( if alarm goes off, put key in the ignition to stop the alarm).

    3. Press unlock button on remote and the remote will resynchronize with the car.

    If it does not work, then you have either two faulty remotes, if you are not, you have a faulty control module or a problem with ECU.

    The best thing to do is going to any authorized card dealer, testing remotes and getting a remote that you know is working synchronised with the car.

Hi Mark you could try to see if re-programming the key might do it, you could also disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if it resets that way...to re-program the key this is what you do, please follow by the book or it wont work, this however is just a trial to see if it will do the job, if reprogramming the key does not do it, then disconnect the battery for ten minutes and then try re-programming of the key...
1, unlock the car with the key ( not fob) get in and shut the door 2, switch ignition on and then off ( do not try to run it just on then off) 3, remove ignition key 4, press and hold unlock button 5, press lock button 3 times quickly all within ten seconds keeping the unlock button pressed 6, release unlock button 7 ( if you have this type of key fob) the led will flash slowly for 10 seconds 8,( if you have this type of key fob) the central locking system will lock and unlock rapidly to indicate correct programming 9 ( if you have this type of key fob) repeat procedure if the led flashes constantly, or the locking system does not unlock and lock rapidly please follow as directed..if you have any problems understanding what to do, please contact me on email address s.e.morris@live.co.uk hope this helps

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

Possibly battery-related problem with '02 Mazda Protege


It sounds like the car's security system is going off. Is there a key fob to lock/unlock doors and turn on alarm? If there is, connect battery, and immediately press alarm/unlock button to turn alarm off.
I have a truck with an aftermarket alarm system installed by the previous owner, my battery died, and when I hooked up a new one the alarm went off, and it took a while before I hit the key fob button, but it stopped it. Let me know if this works for u.
