Remote control for locking and alarm not working

I am trying to fix my remote control but it is not working even after i changed the battery. Do i have to get a new one or is there a more economical way to fix it. will i have to change the whole system in my car or are there remotes that are compatible with my car original alarm system?

    I have the same problem on my 97 Accord. When I hit the power locks inside the car I could hear a sound like it was trying to lock/unlock the doors, but it never went through. When it warms up a little I plan on ripping the doors apart to see if I can figure out what's going on.

Perhaps the mechanism is worn out that locks and unlocks your doors. Remove the door panel if you feel comfortable with the idea or find someone mechanically inclined to do it for you and try using your remote to see if there is any movement within the powered mechanism. I dont know the history of your cars and if someone else has tried to repair that issue. If the remote itself is the problem, I imagine theres a sight online you could probably find a universal remote to replace your faulty one.

Are you using an aftermarket key or the original? It may have a chip in it. Also if you have a spare original try it.

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have an Alarm remote battery problem. You need to change the remote's battery. The remote's battery gets a little bit of charge whenever you leave it for quite some time. A trip to your mechanic might have been long enough to give your remote's battery a little bit of charge that's probably why it works whenever you get to your mechanic's place. But after that, you've used the little bit of charge that the battery has then It will not work anymore after you get home. Try leaving the remote unused for at least an hour or two then try to use it. Im sure it will work for a bit. Just get the remote's battery changed.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Key thob has stopped working, I have changed the battery but still broke, I am looking for the fuse for the central locking but cannot find it, saab 9-3 linear 2003


Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.

ELANTRA ALARM PROBLEM


If the alarm keeps going off constantly and the remote has no influence on the alarm its most likely a connection problem. A hyundai dealer might be able to fix it but since you can start the car something you might be able to try is....
Check and make sure the remote battery is in the right way. Make sure all of the doors are closed, the trunk is closed, open the hood, connect the battery, close the hood all the way and try to lock and unlock the doors. Hope this works but if not, sorry it didn't work.

Remote not working after disconnecting battery


If car Convenience Control Module(module that control key remote) lose power- remote adaptation to the car will be lost. This apply to some Audi models.
What you can try to do is:
1. Disarm alarm manually by opening door lock with the key
2. Put key into ignition and turn to on position (don't start the car)
3. Press few times remote button (with the ignition in on position)
Depends on your year model it my work (works on the newer models), if not you have to go to the dealership to program your keys.
Good luck!

Alarm wont let me start the car


you need the remote control of the alarm to turn the alarm off.

you may need to change the battery of the remote in case it would no longer control the alarm or if you have a valet switch to turn off the alarm, then use it.

the immobilizer is working that is why you can not start the car.

tnx 4 using fixya,
