Astrostart got wet won't work now

Got the key fob wet. I dried it and put new batteries in it and it worked great. After a week of no problems it won't work at all. Although sometimes it will start the alarm and not stop.

SOURCE: mercedes c220 ignition key stopped working

Hi! Sounds like the key needs to be coded again, take all relvant details i.e. chassis vin number, Registration document (Title) and key to your local Mercedes Dealership and hopefully they'll rec-code it for youor replace it.
Good Luck and a Happy New Year to You and your family.

SOURCE: problem with ford explorer alarm imobiliser

You should have a switch under the dash and then just turn it to the off position. If you don't or it doesn't work (like mine) then, there is 2 fuses under the dash, put the key in the ignition and turn it forward, pull one of the fuses out and then start the car that should reset it. Then you should be able to put the fuse back. Sometimes if you put the fuse back before starting it the alarm will just continue to try and reset itself, but not start the car. If that doesn't work I have a mechanic who can pull the whole alarm out and when hes done it would look like nothing has ever been installed. Hes very good. I ended having him take my alarm out when I had the same incident happen after the 2nd time.

2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.

Land rover key


Can try, open fob and use a hair dryer to dry it out, could put it in a box (like a small oven) and just use a gentle heat, I have dried out ECU's like this, hand dryers are great for this. Hope it works

.2007 Toyota Camry XLE key fob not opening trunk remotely...also starting to have problems with it opening driver side door


First things first...replace the cheaper part first, the battery. It that works, great! If not, then you may need a new key fob then have it programed to your system.

Washed my remote key to my ford fusion what should I do


Try putting it in some white rice overnight. Rice has been know to absorb moisture out of cell phones so they work again after getting wet. It may work on remote keys as well.

Car key not recognized


I have change several new keys which had the magnetic chips in them which had to be sync to the car, . When you have a new key made you have to sync it to the car/ magnetic chip or fob key. Link which might help sync problems with fob keys, my vehicles were GM with just the magnetic chip key and not nearly as complicated.

I changed my car battery, now my 2008 Nissan Altima key fob won't work


There is a special procedure involved in keying your fob to your car once the battery has been changed. You must lock and open the door with your key. Turn the ignition to "on"(not start) then push the fob's open and close button, then shut off ignition. This procedure is done everything the key battery is changed. Hope this can help you!

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.

Won't start, could it be fob or engine?


Try not using the fob at all open the door with the key. And start the jeep if it works without issue then its the fob. If its still not working correctly remove the battery from the fob and try again(since if it was damaged could be sending the signal for the panic button) the next step is the key try your spare security key can become worn and cause issues with the antitheft system. After that it only leaves computer problems and those can get spendy

2008 Mazda 5 key fob battery changed and it still won't work. how do i fix it?


I have taken a GM key FOB apart before and found a bad soldered connection. If that doesn't work, people sell them on Ebay all the time, look up how to program on the web and reprogram it to match your vehicle.

My FOB got wet is not working, now i cannot open the door without the alarm going off... i need help


The FOB has got an immobiliser circuit built in. It looks like some water has got in.

It may not work but what I'd try is this. Open the FOB, take out the battery (Small silver disk) put the FOB somewhere warm to dry out thoroughly. (At least 24 hours) Now I'd go and get a new battery while this is going on. Once dry, re-assemble with the new battery.

After trying this, I'd be going to a professional or contacting Isusu for help myself.
