Alarm wont set 2008 jeep commander


the car came with 2 RKE FOBs
are both dead.?
alway have 3 FOB if not you can not reprogram a new one. self.
can cost you $300 for more to tow your car to the dealer if the 1 fob dies. never run one fob. or bad happens.
put in a new battery in the FOB for door issues
the transponder part does not use the battery .
the transponder must be good, or the car would never run.
the jeep cuts fuel after 2 seconds if the transponder fails.

Alarm on my 1998 vw sharan keeps sounding off and the drivers door sometimes willnot lock with remote///////can i disable it ////can iturn alarm sensor down so its not so sensitive/////please help its...


When did you last change the battery in your remote key fob. As strange as this may sound, if your battery is slightly down in power, it will not give a full signal to your alarm/imobiliser/central locking. Because you are begining to have problems with your remote central locking, this is a good indication that this could be your problem. You can get a battery anywhere, but they are only pennies from your local VW dealer.

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
