You might have something left on inside your car (map lights, vanity mirror lights ....  the car has a module that will shut off the power to all the assy options if it senses a drain on the battery for 20 mins after the car is shut off .  the module will then wake up again when the door lock is turned or ignition is turned.

All BNW's have remote key openers built into key, so what doesn't work, the manual lock, or the remote key, or both. When you say you don't have keyless entry, on a BMW the remote is the key.

My keyless entry pad stopped working replaced the battery and still will not work. I have a 2001 ford taurus ses. how do i resolve this problem by reprogramming the keyless entry pad? I tried the code lock...


Try it with a new remote pad, turn the key back and forth untill the locks jump up and down.. do it slowly , when they jump make sure to leave the key in the on position while pressing both lock and unlock buttons on the remote, they should then jump again telling you that the remote is now programed.

I have a 96 ford conversion van with a 600 plus addon keyless system and need to program new keyless remots , need to know how to get system in program mode.


Hi.

To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:

1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock.
2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A.
3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
4. Turn key off.
5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock.
6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.


I hope this helps you.

Thanks!

Keyless Remote Won't Work - But Car Starts


The remote receiver unit is located in the rear view mirror. This may be faulty. Since the car is new (less than a year?) you still may have the factory warranty.

Remote key fob does not unlock or lock car


It may just be a battery problem. Replace the battery of your remote fob. If it will not work, try to reposition the controller beneath the dashboard.
