Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.

My Lotus Elise turn signals and hazard lights are not working. IS there anything I can check before taking it to the dealer?


Check fuses. Have you by any chance changed to LED bulbs? If so, flasher units must be changed as the new bulbs draw less current. If bulbs not changed, might try changing flashers anyway as they are cheap. These should be located in the fuse box for most cars.

Looking after supercharged elise in garage - went flat so charged battery, now won't start and there is a circular ring on the speedo just above centre - what is this?


If the alarm was on, when the battery went flat - and I suppose it was - then you have to follow the manual to teach in your keys again.

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

My 2005 corvettes battery was drained after sitting for too long. I recharged the battery but when I tried to restart the FOB were not being detected and the horns and lights go off like someone is trying...


The car's security/keyless entry system needs to be reset, and it's not recognizing the keyless entry FOB.

Check this LINK for how to re-program the FOB, which should allow you to turn off the alarm.

I don't know how to reset the alarm without the FOB, but it should be in the Owner's Manual.

where is the leak from sounds like brake or clutch fluid as oil is coloured. Check the level of the brake/clutch fluid reservoir in the front of the car it is a common reservoir supplying both. the slave cylinder fo the clutch is located on the gear box in the engine compartment left hand side towards the bulkhead on a large black steel bracket these are the most common componets to leak. easy to change and not very expensive.

Can't start it


I would remove the battery and have it tested... many stores that sell batteries will test for you including AutoZone. Then I would test the starter solenoid then the starter itself. Pulling it out and touching some leads from a 12V battery charger to it to see if you get any motion.

Nothing wrong with pulling the terminals and cleaning them.
