Battery with a dead cell can still show 12.5-13.8 volts but when any draw is put on it will drop voltage like a rock such as cutting on the headlights. They may look ok to begin with but will dim very quickly. I would start here by having the battery load tested.

    Had a 98 Grand Prix and had to take it to the dealership to get it programmed. Have also had others make similar statements. I would say yes, fob must be programmed to vehicle code.

I had a skim module go out in mine in the ignition, and I have a 2001. It's a 100 part, and now it starts fine.

SOURCE: car won't start

Either an interior light or head lights were left on all night, or there's a dead short in the electrical system, or... the battery completely failed internally such as a weak spot or defect in the plates. At any rate, it all obviously points to the battery. Replace the battery.

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.

My 2002 passat wont open with the fob but the key itself only fits in half way. Battery is dead and cant get in to charge it


Without power in the car battery the key fob won't open the car. If the key fits only halfway in the lock spay some wd-40 or some other maintenance spray in the lock and work the key in and out CAREFULLY. eventually you should get in.

Nissan terstar dci 120 not starting flashing red stop light


no year, now that makes for a long story, huh?
what is a terstar?
you ment , INTERSTAR (so says google.)??????
a VAN.
ouch wiki is only in German....
2003-10 (transated)
Analogous to the revision of the Renault Master II / Opel Movano I also received the Interstar 2003 a revision of the body, engines and interior. Since then, an automated manual transmission (Interstar X70) was for the revised model now available and optional ESP (vehicle dynamics control) available. Also belonged from now a Brake Assist besides the previously installed anti-lock braking system standard on all models. Since then, the Interstar has been delivered as a minibus with up to 16 seats. 2010, the Interstar was replaced by the Nissan NV400.

NO START.
but to start any DIESEL engine,
IT MUST Crank first. does it?
if NOT, the the battery is dead, or bad. (or discharged)
DOes jumper cables used, (donor car) crank engine now?
if it DOES, crank, and robustly, then Id bet the glow plugs are bad.
if not glow plugs, lack of FUEL , ever change the filters per schedule>?

open glove box, extract the operators guide, I PROMISE
it tells you what the RED lamp means..
if lost , get one. from NISSAN , they are free.

Central locking fob ok but central locking totally dead


Does the central locking still work when you open with the key. First place to start is a new battery in ur fob even if the lights still coming on

My car is shutting off why im driving it is getting fire and fuel we have tried everything we can think of can you help me with this 1998 nissian pathfinder


1. Did you open the door with the key rather than the key fob if it was locked with the key fob? Some engine immobilizer will let drive a short distance and then shut down.
2. Is the engine oil level correct. Some cars wont start if too low.
3. Is battery fully charged? Some cars will shut down if the battery voltage drops too low.

My 99 jetta wont turn over out the blue...its not the battery AAA said it fully charged ..my locks wont work...the radio works but it wont turn over at all


Sounds like its the battery in the key fob, the door clicker thing, some times the fob battery will not reserve enough power in it to open the doors to prevent a lock out. I would start there as it is the cheapest route, if that does not fix it the next thing to try is the starter. as this will not hinder the locks I am confident that the Fob battery is the issue here.

Dead battery, can't open doors


If you have the keyless entry system, you either have a dead battery in the car, or in your key fob. Regardless, you can gain entry to the vehicle using the emergency key concealed inside your fob. Press the narrow button near the metal end of the fob to separate the parts. They metal piece has a key attached that fits into the lock on the driver's door.
