    My 98 Toyota Corolla was left outside, battery went down. Electric door locks would not unlock, used key to open doors, security alarm went off, horn honking lights flashing until battery was completely dead. Recharged battery, starter will turn engine and the headlights will come on but nothing else. Car will not start.

    Since the vehicle won't start, I can't get it to the mechanic.

Your remote controller can be reset by most auto mechanics.  Go to any trusted mechanic - it takes a couple of minutes - usually no charge;  if you go to a dealer, they will charge you for it. But, if you are still the first owner, your dealer will do it for you for free.

Yes, I would rule out a fuse or relay, because the other locks work. It would not have a separate fuse and relay for that one door. Probably is the motor, as the body shop advised.

Key thob has stopped working, I have changed the battery but still broke, I am looking for the fuse for the central locking but cannot find it, saab 9-3 linear 2003


Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.

Program remote control for mazda mpv 2002


Courtesy of: forums.mazdaworld.org

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done

If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.
