O.k... most likely you have some corrosion inside the remote... go to autozone... get the smallest wire brush they have... it should be 1/2 inch... by 1/2 inch... by about 5 inches long... or something close... and the bristles will be real close together... o.k., go home... remove the battery on the remote... and take remote apart... give it a good shake for 30 seconds... and place a paper towel around the circuit board of the remote... using the thumb and index finger... then ever so gently... apply very little pressure and dry out the remote some, now... leave the board in the towel and go get you a hair dryer and dry the remote the rest of the way... keep the hair drier about 6 inches away from the remote... do that for 2 minutes going side to side, remove the board from the towel... now... using a magnifing glass... inspect the remote... look for anything that looks like a white powder... and ever so gently... clean the board... both sides... when you think you have it all... put the remote back together and try out... if it works for you now... glad to hear it... be careful next time, if not... change batteries... if it still doesn't work... go get another remote and have it programmed... that one's done for... sorry

I own a 1993 DX Honda Civic Hatchback. Recently I had a friend do an engine bay wash that did not end well for me. While driving it home it was running very poorly, shuddering, unable to reach speeds above...

Next time you bay wash your car, leave it running. This way the water evaporates instead of settling in or on your engine. Also make sure that you do not have any exposed wires or leaks in your engine prior to trying it again.

If it was factory fitted You will have to contact isuzu with the V.I.N. and proof of ownership they will get a new fob for you. If it's after market then you can either get a new fob and get it programed or get the imobiliser disabled

Sounds like you are having problems with your built-in alarm system. Like most systems in your Audi, you can read the error codes stored in the controllers. It takes a tool normally only a dealer has (VW or Audi) or an adapter like the VAG Com. (Google it)

I also think you can disable the alarm system and just use the key.

Could the lock button on your remote be stuck? Use a different key/remote. (leaving the suspect key at home.) The keys/remotes can be taken apart....

if a little steel ball also fell out then u need to find it that is the tension for your gears, if nothing fell out then the retainer inside the unit is out of place when you replaced the spring. you might need to have the unit serviced
