You have a bad door switch, which is sticking. Try to clean it with contact cleaner or WD-40.

Doors on the 2005 2500 hd chev truck wont unlock or lock


They are very common for the door latch actuator assembly. Usually it starts when one particular door stops locking or unlocking. The lock rod will only partially go up or down, then gradually stop all together. The actuator used to be a separate component, however now it is integrated into the entire latch assembly. It most likely is the problem and will need replacing. If its just an issue that your key fob doesn't work anymore try replacing the battery in the fob. Then hold the lock and unlock buttons for 7 - 10 seconds to re-synchronize the transmitter.

My switch wont turn and alarm keep going off so how can i turn the switch


You can possibly not have the correct key and the door lock caqn be frozen with ice. The lock it'self might not be frozen but the locking mechcaizem may be. Try different doors as all the door locks will reset the alarm even the hatch. Just unlock it twitce and all the doors should unlock and the alarm reset. A locksmith can open the door for you if you think you have a key problem and once oped the battery can be disconnected the doors clsed with the window down and the key in the on position and then connect the battery and the computer will think the car is already on so the alarm will not be on and then you can turn the car to run and start it and get in and go.

Car alarm won't shut off.


Lot's of things can make it do it but with the drivers door window open. close and lock all the doors. ( said close the doors as in open them and close them back and make sure they close good ) Once all locked up unlock the drivers door with the key twiced once unlocks the door the second time it unlocks all the doors and the thrid time it'll unlock the hatch too. If it does'nt and the alarm is still going off open the hood and close and lock all the doors again. disconnect the battery, ( the alarm will certainly stop then), With the battery disconnected and all the doors closed and locked, put the key in the ingtion and turn it to run ( nothing will happen as the battery is disconnected ) This next part is important. The batterycables should be clean anyway but if their not they need to be clean for the next operation. With them clean put the positive on first and tighten it down now put the negiative onlike you mean it ( don't let it bounce and connect it. The alarm should'nt be going off as the car has the key on. Reach in and start the car ( I did'nt say open the door). with it running it should'nt be alarming either. Turn the key off and remove it them open the door and get in and restart the car itshould be back to normal.. Most of the time one of the door switches said to the computer that it was opened as it was supposed to be locked or it was opened after it was supposed to be locked and you left.

Security system went off after replacing battery now car wont start nor fuel pump will turn on.how do i fix


You might just need to reset it. Roll the drivers window down and close all the doors. Lock all the doors with the key ) turn the key to lock twice, The electric locks should lock all the doors. wail a few minutes and unlock and open the trunk with the key. relock the truck or just close it. unlock the drivers door with the key, twice. all the doors should unlock, get in and start the car. Now this does'nt always work. If it does'nt we'll make the system think it's running. Close and lock all the doors. open the hood and disconnect the battery, one ccable will be fine. wait a few minutes. Reach in though the open window and turn the key all the way on. Don't open the doors, go around and connect the battery hard so it does'nt jump or skip. Reach thought the window and start the car/ once it's running. turn it off remove the key and unlock the door from the inside and open the door ( as if you were inside.) get in and start the car and everything should be back to normal.

My jeep alarm wont stop going off even it is a 1995 jeep wrangler


allright,thank you for consulting fixya.com. try to reset your computer in car by disconnecting the positive cable on the battery for 10mins. but make sure your vehicle has not been vandalized 1st. inspect the key switch please. if all good there, look at your radio system, if all good there, reset the sysytem by disconnecting the pos. side terminal on the battery for the 10mins please. when you reconnect the battery, you may need to manually lock the doors with your key. lock the doors for 2mins then unlock the doors with key and then attempt to start the car.this should reset the alarm. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

HELP please!! My daughter has a 96 sebring convertible and today she put her key in the door to unlock it and the alarm started going off. It wont stop, have disconnected the positive and negative battery...


Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey

Hi i have a land rover freelander 00.back door wont open or tailgate windoe wont go down,the rest of the doors work. help


try a hard restart, if that doesnt work then you need a new rear window motor. for the hard restart all you have to do is disconnect the battery cables and touch the positive and negative together for about 8 seconds. if that fails then a new motor it is.
