Sounds like an immobiliser issue, maybe the anti-theft kicked in, maybe the key wasnt programmed correctly

Replace the battery and it wont start


When the anti theft system was created,the dealers forgot to tell the new car buyers about how much the fob matters to the vehicle,without it,owners are stuck,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.if you lost your fob or never had it,whatever,you need to have the exact fob that came with that car from the factory,the key and fob have a chip in them that only go to that certain car,if you do not have it,then you need to buy a new one from the dealer or ebay and then you need to contact your dealer about programming the fob to your car,you might not have to have it towed if they have the documents from the car,the only other way is to get a junk car,with the steering column,key,fob and all computer boxes and door locks and switch them,(i just did that with a 98 dodge dakota,and it works.)

BMW e46 won't start because of the alarm.


Hi, if the car stay for long time the computer box lost memory. Now is not reading the key. You need to program your key again by BMW manufacturer. Also on bmw the alarm is connected to computer box too.

Hello Edward Garcia,

Indeed yes... you have a 2004 Manufacturer
RECALL CAMPAIN... Notice SC-04-002

FIRST technical Service Bulletin I looked at...

ETACS-ECU Excessive battery drain...

Gives the location and required
>> dealer RE-programming of keys & fobs...

Principally presents on cars left sitting for 7 to 10 days
((they were talking "NEW" cars... I imagine those dynamics change SIGNIFICANTLY with old batteries))...

Attributed to POOR PROGRAMMING...

REMEDY: replacement

Location.. lower dash... between steering wheel & door

Use the FREE TSB database ... provided by
BBB Industries...

Hi,immobiliser problem?battery went flat,,managed to disable alarm on the fob,recharged battery,put new batterys in fob,ok for 2 days,fine in morning wouldnt immobilise in afternoon,put good second battery...


Hi it sounds like you have done everything you can do, it now looks like your going to need to get the immobilizer reset, this can be done at most garages but its best if you shop around to see the best price you can get as its not cheap.

have you tried locking the door with the key and then opening it with the key then try the car see if it will work.

failing that its going to need the imob re-programming so that it accepts your key fob, it may just be that you need the fob replacing as the chip inside could have failed they will be able to test all this for you.

let me know if you need further assistance, not that theirs much more i can do without being their with the equipment to test the immobilizer, hopefully it will just be the fob that needs replacing.

you could just try one last thing when you get in the car and put the key in the ignition try holding the fob as close as you can to the ignition barrel as this is where it picks the signal up from so try holding it close to their and see if that then lets you start the car

failing that its going to be a trip to the garage.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Transponder chip in key fob


This will all depend upon what country you are in, and if the vehicle even has the need for the chip to be programmed at all.

When you put a proper key in the ignition, is there a antitheft logo that cycles with the other indicators?

VW antitheft indicator in the USA often looks like a car with a key under it

In the USA, thought the keys have a MEGAMOS RFID chip, no system was active until 2000, and on some models, not until 2002

A system requires a VIRGIN chip. Once the chip is programmed to a car, the chip is locked to that car. Some new software can unlock and refresh some chips, but not 100%

I had a client come in TODAY with a 2003 Passat, and an EBAY flip key.... I wasted a half hour programming time..... but I carry the lower half of remote, which hold the blade and the chip, so was able to fix client up, when EBAY failed.

If this was helpful, please post a nice review for City Lock in Boulder Colorado listings on Google Maps, Yahoo etc. This listing will link you to my website as well. On my website are resources for finding a legitimate locksmith near you. Be sure you are hiring a REAL locksmith!

Thank You
