Key fob not working car wont start

I have had intermittent problems for a couple months with not being able to push unlock on fob or by sensor handle on door. So, I changed my key fob battery. Stopped having problems for about 2 weeks. However, this morning I couldnt unlock or start vehicle at all. Tried other fob and same thing. This is a big problem - what is going on?

SOURCE: toyota avalon 2006 key fob apparently doesn't work

It looks like you have the "Smart Key" (a small rectangular box) that does not look like a traditional key.
What you also have is a dead battery inside the Smart Key.
Look closely at the box; there is a little button on the side. Press it. This will release a small hidden key. After you remove the small key, use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the case of the box open at the slot provided. Take the unit to a store that sells miniature batteries, and have it replaced. You will NOT have to reprogram it after the battery is changed. The life span of the miniature batteries is roughly 20 months, less if exposed to RFI, like sitting on a TV, a monitor, or other electrical device. The Smart key TRANSMITS all of the time, even when you do not press the buttons. This is why the battery only lasts 18-20 months. Let me know if this fixes your issue..

SOURCE: Drive Door lock only works manually

It is not that hard to fix. Actuater is sold as part of the assembly. You can't just replace it by itself. Order the part online for a lot less than dealer. I learned that when the passenger side did the same thing a couple months later and I saved $150 on line. Remove the inside door panel. Remove lock assembly from door. Remove door handle.

SOURCE: Toyota Celica '91 ST184R - Key fob remote does not unlock the car

The ST18x didn't come with a factory fitted alarm, so this is going to be more general.

Your alarm will have a manual disarm somewhere. If you have a small cylindrical device with your keyfob, there will be a receptacle somewhere near the drivers seat. You need to open the door and press the two items together. If not, you may have a button hidden somewhere around the place. In this case the procedure is usually to hold the button while you insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.

Some alarms have a small round key. If your alarm has one, or if your keys came with one and you didn't know what it was for, you can open the bonnet, pop a little cover on the alarm box (it will be bolted to the firewall, usually on the right hand side as you look at it) and turn it off until you can get it repaired, or get a new one fitted.

If none of this works and your alarm is an alarm only and not an immobiliser, you can simply open the bonnet and cut all the wires going into the alarm. If it is also an immobiliser, don't touch anything unless you're handy with a soldering iron and multimeter and have a few hours spare. (You would need to pull the cover down from under the steering wheel, then start taking electrical tape off the big block connector with thick wires, and then start rebuilding the wiring that's been chopped to make way for the immobiliser system on a colour-matching basis.)

Drivers door lock unlocks intermittently with key fob


Steve, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

When a door lock is active intermittently it can be a couple of things. (1) The door lock actuator can be a the point of going bad.(2) The Key Fob unlock button can be bad and you have to press it several time to work OR if it is unlocking the door by itself at time a sticking button can cause this issue as well. Hope this helps and have an awesome day. If you like visit my auto repair website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

probably the FOB, just because other functions work does not mean that the lock/unlock will work. This is the most used function and the one that goes first.

The key fob for my car will not unlock the doors or start the engine


You say that your key fob does not unlock the car. Try to open the door ordinary and try to start the car. If the car wont start means that your key fob has lost the program and needs re-programing. The other option is either you by any case confused the key fob with the standard key which is only to unlock the doors. The last senario is when you have opened the key fob to check the battery lost the microchip and that is the reason for not starting. Check following my advice. Good luck.

I have a VW Golf 01 and the key fob opens and shuts the doors fine. But as soon as i put the key in the ignition to start the car it wont start all lights go off and the alarm goes off. Help please!


Okay, this sounds like theres a problem with the switch inside the door, try this, go to the passenger door and unlock it with the key, note if it has a lock, most newwer cars are only putting locks on drivers door, but if it has one use the key to unlock it and then try to start the car, if theres no lock then try the truck lock, unlock it with the key and try to start the car, if that doesnt work then use the fob to unlock all doors by pushing it two times and then start the car, the problem is the switch inside the door lock, this switch is part of the latch asm, good day.

Depending on the year, anything over about 1998 has whats called a 'central convenience module' that controls the windows, locks, sunroof, alarm, etc. It sounds like the one in your car is faulty. Its possible that the bad alternator caused some sort of power spike that has semi-fried the module, but not completely. They can be had used for < $100 generally.
