You should be able to access your vehicle options via the driver information center usually on the instrument cluster where the mileage is located or the overhead console if equipped. there should either be a button on the steering wheel or on the instrument cluster its self

SOURCE: My Spare Key Won't Start My Car

ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.

SOURCE: key fob remote start issues

You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Venture shows gas gauge as always full..

if the remote works but the switches inside the van doesn't then the most likely fix would be the switch, tthough it is strange that both would quit. the place too start would be pop out the switch with a small screwdriver and disconnect the connector. the top left pin and the top middle pin is the unlock circuit in the switch. check continuity with your multimeter while pressing unlock. if no continuity, then get a small piece of wire and jump those pins in the connector,( the top right and center ) you should hear the doors unlock, then you know for a fact that the switch is bad. the unlock is used more than the lock so it is a more common failure. you can also use a continuity test on the rear wiper switch. though it is more common that the motor would stick from not being used. hope this helps if you have any more questions i am glad to help... dustang

sounds like your steering column lock is binding you need to slightly turn the steering one way or the other while turning the key at the same time. this happens if the steering wheel is turned after removing the key. or when parked against a curb.

I have a2001 Dodge Dakota quad cab and the window switches don't work but the driver switch works on all four


On the driver's window control panel, there is a lockout switch that disables all other window switches. This switch is probably bad if it is in the unlock position.

How do you turn off an alarm for a 2005 Saturn Ion


Disarming an Armed System/Silencing an Alarm
If system arming has been requested by the keyless entry transmitter, it must be disarmed.
Important: Using the power door unlock switch or manually unlocking the doors does not disable the CTD armed mode. Also, disconnecting the battery or pulling fuses does not disable the armed mode, since the BCM stores the CTD mode status in memory.
?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in arm pending mode, SECURITY indicator flashing and doors open, perform 1 of the following:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system in the armed mode:


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.


?€¢
To disarm the CTD system when activated, alarming mode.


-
Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry transmitter.


-
Insert a valid key into the ignition and start the vehicle.

Doors unlock by themself


Assuming you mean door unlocks while parked? Toyota will not allow door to be locked using the remote control while key is in the ignition or if you with a wireless proximity key (now referred to as a FOB), while the wireless key is still in the car. If these are not the case, you may need to check out the sensor in the ignition or if using a FOB, the computer interface between the FOB circuit and the door lock.

Have 2008 Dodge Avenger, left key and remote in car, Triple A says they can't unlock it that they think battery in remote went dead and if so, does different lock to whole car and you need security...


Is the remote battery dead? And why can't they unlock the car? It sounds like you got a rookie for unlocking cars! I would call another tow company, then send the bill to AAA. Unlocking the car should have nothing to do with a dead remote. I know this because I have done thousands of lockouts for a wrecker company. If the door locks are on the door their is a tool called an under over that should reach the lock or door handle. If not they can carefully wedge the door and reach them with a rod also to unlock it. Even though it's electric it should open with the manual part for safety reasons.

It's probably an anti theft lockout device that disables the ignition and /or starter. I would say there's no way to reset it without going through a dealer. If you have a key fob that unlocks the doors electronically you might try using that. Or try locking the open door then closing it and unlocking it again then getting in and trying to start it. Try all kinds of combos but I'll tell you...replacing batteries, fuel pumps, things like that will just be a waste of money. Try all those little combinations of locking and unlocking the car, if none work...call an Infiniti dealer. I know it stinks but with a car stolen every few seconds it's really for your protection. Good luck.

Locked keys in 325


you will have to call a profesional locksmith who can make you a key for the door only to unlock it, i do auto lockouts for a living but we are unable to unlock them with standard tools for unlocking cars, I can pump open the door and hit the unlock switch but it will never unlock the door, the car alarm prevents this from doing so. Slim jims dont work on these also, nothing works, BMW actaullay requires us to tow them to the dealership whenever we get lockouts for BMW's. give the dealership your VIN number and they can send you another key for about $150, if you ca afford a BMW then u can afford $150 to get a new key.
