Question about 2003 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Nothing works, not even the lock button...

I went to start up my 2003 civic, at first a light comes on, it is a red exclamation (when i had turned the ignition), I wonder 'what the hell..' I give it another go and this time there isn't even the red light...I lost the manual :S The battery is new...It was working just fine at lunch time....I just don't know...there's only silence coming from my civic.

    the battery is a *victim* need to get to cause...the battery can be drained in many way..lost commonly is a aftermarket component like a radio/ alarm or gps system wired into it a good detective and search for any modifications to the main battery/charging system as suspect sure all lines are clean and tight (especially grounds)..good luck

    also once you install a new /fresh charged battery first thing is to look for suspect lights on or power drains ..chargers ..cigar lighter accessories, trunk or glove box lights not going off etc.....
    there is a parasitic leak somewhere to be found here or problem will continue

2003 kia sorento keyless entry not working

If both remotes light up and don't work even right next to the car, the car and remotes may need to be paired again. I found where someone mentioned disconnecting the car batter for more than one minute but less than five and seeing if it works again. If not, you may have to get it checked at a dealer. Most of these fobs are only programable with special tools at the dealer. I've purchased nissan oem fobs new on ebay, but still had to pay the local dealer to get them to work.

I have 1998 Chevy Silverado with over 200,000 miles. One morning I started it up just fine, backed out of the drive way, and it just died. I turned the ignition to off, and turned it back on and parked it....

Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.
