Just a thought, but battery may need a charge, possible alternator not working.

SOURCE: my scion xb will not start up. when i try to start

Yes, it could be. If it is the original, it is 5 years old.
Before I bought a new one though, I would remove the negative battery cable, then clean both battery terminals and the clamp that goes on them. With the battery negative still disconnected, you should trace both cables to their terminus, remove those and clean them too.
If that doesn't help, you can have your battery checked at any chain auto parts store. Their tester will tell you quickly if the battery will accept a charge and function as it should.
BTW: If you have a password protected stereo or alarm system, you will need that to get them working again.

SOURCE: The other day I heard

I couldn't really tell you if the noise you are describing is related but the first thing you need to do is find out what Trouble Codes your ECM (Computer) is giving you, that's why the Check Engine Light is on. Once you have the codes it will give us a better indication of where to look. You will need to hookup a OBD II Scanner (On-Board Diagnostic) to you Diagnostic Port located under your driver's side dash panel. Once you retric=ve the Trouble Code out of the Computer you can start pin-pointing what the problem is.

I will tell you it most likely is related and has to do with your Trans-axle (Transmission), maybe a bad soleniod or a bad sensor. You can have the codes retrieved at no charge from most Auto-Zones, O'Reilly Auto parts, Pep Boys, Aamco Transmissions and there may be other shops may do it for you for no charge.

2006 Scion Xb - The battery light came on and all the lights slowly got dimmer until the car stalled - Any suggestions

How old is the battery? Most batteries, are good for about 5 years. If you get a battery from Walmart, that is not the wisest choice, they are second-hand / bottom of the barrel type batteries at Walmart and Kmart. Get a reputable brand like from Napa. That's where I would start. Check your doors, make sure there is nothing keeping a door open and your dome light on.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?

I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

How can i start my car without Remote keyless entry?

Use the driver's door key cylinder> Lock and unlock the car with the key after all doors are closed and this should solve the problem. If not, then it has nothing to do with the RKE Transmitter.

My 2004 v6 ford explorer won't start new batery and new starter no luck wont even click ?

Did you check the start relay for voltage? Ohms reading?

If I remember correctly the circuit goes like this:
Key turns ignition switch which puts voltage to the start relay which engages the solenoid.
So if it isn't even clicking and your headlights seem to be working fine then it is either the ignition switch or the start solenoid coil.
On older Fords the start solenoid used to be remote mounted on a fender. I heard newer Ford vehicles had it integrated with the starter like GM does.
A quick visual inspection will tell you which and where you need to look.
You might check if there is a fuse for that as well.

Wont start. 06 commander. Battery and connections are good.

have you tried jumping it off?If that doesnt work all i can think of is maybe the master relay,or the security light. when u turn ur key on does your security light blink? If so then your security is active an you'll have to have it towed in an have it deactivated.No promises though but in most my cases thats been it.

Security light flash no security system on truck

sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working

The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
