SOURCE: Remote door opener... key fob

Are the OTHER remotes working properly? If so, there is no wiring issues. It is rare that wiring can cause the remotes to be inoperative...Sadly, I have observed many remote/fobs that simply fail. I would advise both of you to take your fobs to your local Toyota dealer, and have the Service Dept check the RF output from the remotes on their hand-held detector. This is the only way to determine if the fob/remote is indeed working. No RF = no lock/unlock. All Toyota dealers should have this box, it is a required special tool. The part number for the detector is 00002-09001-01

SOURCE: 2003 saab conv,what does the second maxi fuse do

With the fuse in,and the engine off,start pulling ,relays,one,at a time,the relay that you pull that drops the voltage will be the one that is stuck,this fuse controls the ignition relay.This relay is stuck,and needs to be replaced,by the way,try unplugging the alternator to see if the voltage drops also,cause the 13.5 voltage that was tested on this alternator concerns me,this is not good,really should be 14.25 when bench tested,on the vehicle,with everything on,headlights and ac on high blower motor setting,it should read 13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts at the battery.Now on the bench,it should have read closer to 14.25 volts.If it is any lower than this range,the alternator is not working correctly.If this was at all helpful,please rate,and thank you.

You will need a auto electrician that specialises in alarms to disconnect or reprogram it. The alarm system has a back up battery usually inside the main controller, this will not solve your problem, you will find it has several ways of immobilising your vehicle, the remote will need to be re programmed to your alarm system, i have seen an auto electrician fix this problem in 10 minutes but they will not tell you how, toyota might also be of some assistance but they are not very helpful unless they have the car. Find yourself a cheap tow truck and get it towed home unless you can find a mobile auto electrician. Do not waste your time with disconnecting things, they are designed for that specific reason, keep the thieves from cutting, disconnecting, towing etc to steal your car.

SOURCE: My car isn't turning over

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If that's the case then the starter is surely faulty that's why you hear a tick sound but be sure that the battery has a good charge. If the battery is strong and it still fails to start then surely is a starter problem. But if it starts on a new battery then the old battery is worn out and needs replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

They are mated, there is no need to reprogram them. I assume that the key starts the car and the problem you are having is that the remote does not lock and unlock the doors. If you have a second key and it works properly then your first key/remote is broken or you have the new batteries in wrong. If you push and hold one of the buttons there should be a light that flashes on the remote. (some do not have this). A replacement remote has to be ordered at the dealer and will either come pre-programmed for your car, or they will do it when the key shows up. Nothing the home user can do here really.

You people ARE NOT ADDRESSING MY PROBLEM!!!! My car isn't getting ANY power to it since I hit a deer!! What do you suggest I do to start it??

There is a reset switch on your car that has to be reset, It is under the dash on the passenger side right behind the dash pannel. Or it may be behind the foot pannel on the side of the car. There is a button that you have to push in order to reset the switch. There will be a red light come on when it is reset. Good luck.

Something is draining my battery, there was a short in the headlight switch... i replaced it now my rear parking lights arent coming on i dont know where to start checking the wires..the fuses are fin

The most methodical way to check for wiring shorts is to start at the fuse box. With the ignition turned off, and the key out of the ignition switch, most circuits should be dead. So, using a volt meter or perhaps even an ammeter, pull out each fuse and test whether current is flowing over the circuit. Expect to see current flowing over the fuse that powers your clock and any receiver for keyless entry / remote locking remotes. You might also see current for one or two other systems that are still on "standby" when the car is powered off. However, you shouldn't see current flowing for circuits that could be on but aren't--think dome lights that turn on when a door is opened, or a cigarette lighter outlet that is still active if you plug something into it.
Checking the fuses in this way will show you the system that's got an unexpected drain. I know you suspect something involving the headlight switch, but you might have shorted an unrelated system when you were installing the switch. That's very hard to tell from a physical inspection.
Once you have identified a circuit with unexpected current drain, check your owner's manual or maybe even in the inside of the fuse box cover to see which systems that fuse covers. Unplugging one component at at a time (i.e., radio and 12v outlet are often on the same fuse; dome light is often on the same fuse with other components, etc.), check to see whether the current drain is the same or different. Eventually, you will identify the component that is causing the problem.
At this point, I would suggest charging your battery, disabling your suspected component if you can, and letting things rest a day. Did this fix the battery drain? If so, you're definitely on the right track. If not, you may have found a lesser problem you didn't even know you had.
This is only a starting point for your troubleshooting, but I hope it gets you pointed in the right direction. Good luck!

I need a fuse diagram/layout for a 2006 Ford E150. Lighter fuse blew and I don't want to pull every fuse to find the bad one.

Here's a solution that will help in the future. If you look at the fuse(s) they have two small exposed metal tabs. You can get a $5.00 test light and ground it. turn the key on and probe each tab. That's what they're there for. As I said, with the key on, probe each side of the fuse in the fuse block. Both tabs on each fuse should light the light. That means there's current passing through it. If only one side lights it then the fuse is blown and current isn't passing through it to operate accessory. I hope that helps. If so, please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. Thanks for using Fixya.

Do you even know that you have
a blown fuse?

If you do,are you aware that if you replace
it,it will blow again.

Are you aware that a fuse isn't a repair
or fix for anything. It is just a link in completing
a circuit, that will melt to protect everything
down stream, if a circuit experiences a
high current load

I went to get in my hummer this am, the key remote did not work, manually opened lock and then went to start veh and everything was just dead, now I can't even get the key out, would this be the fuses or...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You should go ahead and check all your fuses in your fuse box. There is a chance that you activated the security system in the vehicle. It may need reset. If the code isn't in your owner manual, you will need to get the code from the dealership. Since the key is stuck, you may have a bad ignition module or lock cylinder. Make sure the shifter is firmly in park and you could also try moving the steering wheel left to right, while trying to get the key out. I am not sure if the security system can lock the ignition module up. It is possible. If it is not the alarm and the key is stuck, you will have to get a new ignition module and lock cylinder. The part alone is a few hundred dollars. Go ahead and check your a/c fuses. Check your battery and make sure it is holding a proper charge. Clean the terminals and battery post and make sure the terminals are not damaged. Make sure the wires are not damaged as well. When you are checking the fuses, check the entire fuse box. Make sure no other fuses have blown and make sure nothing shorted out. You could have an electrical issue. Once you check the fuses, try looking in your owner manual for a security code. If you can't find one, check the dealership. Make sure you have your VIN number and vehicle info. The alarm could have caused it to not start. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.
