Im beginning to think that my truck is possessed, lol.
The key pad on the drivers door is the only way the system doesnt start automatically locking and unlocking. Using my keyring buttons almost seem to confuse the system.
Does anyone know how to reprogram the key pad? I know going thru the jack compartment.

Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.
Maybe you should call a Priest??? Lol...If memory serves that falls in the years of the big frame recall. Sounds like a wire or wires may be pinched or broken. Get a Chiltons book and start tracking the wires of the individual circuts that a giving you trouble
security system has locked the vehicle. it thinks it is being stolen. lock all doors , unlock drivers door with key ( not the fob) crank the car with door shut with the key. if it doesnt work try locking doors leave car unattended for 30 min try again. if that doesnt work connect a battery charger to the battery . leave key in the run ( not start) position for 30 mins and try to start it then. if that is unsucessful tow it to dealer
apparently the VW beetle is an odd machine, there is some kind of module connected to the locks and windows, for instance if you have the door lock, and in the closed position then use the key to unlock and hold it in unlock position the window will roll down showing you that the lock control module is working. if I were you I would seriously consider taking it to a VW dealership and showing them the problem. they might be able to tell you whats wrong or suggest a good exorcist lol good luck
I assume you mean that the central locking system will not lock the doors but you can do so manually.
Get inside the vehicle and close all doors.
On each rear door, lock and unlock the mechanism manually a couple of times. In other words do not use the key pad.
leave both rear doors in the locked position (manual locking) and
operate the lock button on you key pad to operate the central locking
system. Wait a few seconds then hit unlock on your key pad and a few
seconds later hit lock on your key pad.
If the system fails to
lock your rear doors you will need to get the vehicle to an auto
electrician to check out the issue and rectify it for you. There are a
number of possible causes which cannot be identified without physically
checking the system. So you will need to have this rectified by a
Hello, if you're still having this problem it sounds like it is most likely your ignition "switch" itself. This is generally a $300.00 fix at your local Saab dealer however you can replace it yourself with a moderate level of mechanical knowledge. I'm assuming you have the encoded blocky non traditional looking "key" with a backup "traditional" key stored within. This key contains a code which is picked up by the CIM releasing the steering lock and allowing you to turn the key and start the vehicle. In Saabs infinate wisdom?? They found it appropriate to place this delicate electrical device within inches of a cup holder and high probability of being drenched in whatever your beverage at the time happens to be (usually coffee or soda). This can cause failure of the unit, requiring replacement. Are you able to hear the "click" (steering lock release) when you put the key in? Does your message center display any information? "Steering lock malfunction" "key not recognized"? I'm willing to bet that the problem is likely in this area. I do have a used (in good working condition and in nice shape) spare ignition switch and key if you determine that this is what you need. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or take your car to your local Saab dealer to be diagnosed.
Man,I just bought a 96 chrysler lhs(salvage title) and we drove it home...Had no keypad.My girl and I got out and she left her purse...I opened the door and that car started honking and everything...Alarm wouldnt cut off so,What i did was go to the driver's door,Put the DRIVING KEY IN THE LOCK and locked and unlocked the door...Then,the alarm went off.Try that and if it doesnt work...Try to use those buttons.
I have a dodge caravan so I am not sure if it will work for you. My minivan did this while iwas driving as well as as the lights flickering(interior). What I did was to reset the alarm by putting my key into the driver side door and turning it left to right about 4 times this resets the system. Try it maybe it will work for you too.
