The it sounds like someone put something in the lock like a broken off tooth pick. You will need to call a automotive Locksmith to try and clean it out or replace it.

You don't find much with the door jamb switches any longer. Its all done inside the door with the switches being on the door latch.

Chevrolet Tahoe, still can`t disable alarm system It`s remote radio system, NO PASSLOCK ! Only 3 buttons remote has - Close/Open and Panic All remotes is ok, all buttons are working, but car accept only...


Not sure of the year of your Tahoe but I can tell you the standard procedure to program your key for say like a 1999. First make sure your battery has a full charge. Next if you have any security related trouble codes stored in your computer, you will need to clear the codes either by clearing them with a scanner or disconnecting the battery for at least 10 minutes to clear the codes. The first step is to turn the key and just let it turn over quick but not enough to where the vehicle starts and shuts down again. Just kind of tap the key as if starting it so the starter turns the engine for a second. When you do that just release the key so it stays in the "Run" position. Lights will be on in the instrument cluster including the security light. The security light may flash on and off. Leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the security light usually goes out but not in all cases. After 10 minutes in the run position, turn the key to the off position but do not remove the key. Wait 10 seconds and do the first step again (Tap again let key stay in run position for 10 minutes). You will need to do this 3 times totally about 30 minutes. On the 3rd time when the 10 minutes is up, turn off key, do not remove the key and then start the vehicle. This procedure should work to progam your key. If it doesn\'t you may have another problem with the security system. Let me know how it turns out and I hope there isn\'t another problem and the computer just lost the transponder code. there is a security relay/module that sometimes goes bad in those Tahoes but try programming the keys first. If that doesn\'t work and you need further help as far as that relay/module & to let me know how it turned out,

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

I have a 2003 hyundai sonata and i dont have the remote for the stock alarm. My alarm keeps going off and my car wont start. I bought a new battery and even tried the key in the door still no luck.....


The 2003 Sonata is equipped with a 'starter KILL' burglar alarm system with disables the starting system (using a N/C 'contacts' configuration instead of a N/O contacts configuration). N/C=Normally closed, and N/O=Normally open contacts. When the alarm goes off with a MY Sonata, the only way to DISARM it is with the key fob (remote) originally programmed for it (unless you purchase a new remote & have it programmed for the vehicle at an authorized Hyundai Service Department). NOTE: So long as the keyless entry & burglar alarm system is functioning/operating normally, the alarm will keep going off and the STARTER KILL function will still prevent you from starting the vehicle. One option is left without purchasing a new remote and having it programmed.
1. When the alarm goes off, get into the vehicle and insert the ignition key into the ignition.
2. Turn the key to the 'RUN' position (NOT the ACC position) and wait for the alarm to STOP (usually about 3 to 5 minutes).
3. The engine should then start using the ignition key.

If this procedure doesn't work, the problem will need further diagnosis by a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician.

Hope this helps

TRY TO START. DASH LITES GO OUT AND NO SOUND FROM STARTER TRYINGTO ENGAGE theft lite appears says car wont start can a bad alternator cause this problem?


No it wont. But disconnecting the battery or running it completely dead can. When the battery is disconnected the cars security goes into theft mode. I believe on yours you have to lock all the doors from the inside lock button, then shut the door. use your keys to unlock the door, put the keys in the igntion and turn it on, dont start it. wait for the light to go out. if it doesn't then start it after a minute or two..

THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.
