    Neither of the fobs will unlock the doors. It also is a push start , but won't start the car unless I plug them into the dash board charger.

You may have to replace the remotes and then have them reprogramed for the car because they do go bad but if there is an autozone near you they will test the remotes for free

My trunk wont open after un locking cars security system but after unlocking trunk from inside of car trunk latch works as long as trunk is open


No mention of make/model but does key fob open doors OK? If so it isn't the fob batteries... Could still be a bad button on the fob but it could be a balky solenoid on the trunk latch. Maybe try 12V direct to the solenoid?

2006 Cadillac STS driver side door lock doesn't activate when I approach the car (as it's supposed to). Key fob also doesn't activate the lock or unlock features. All other doors and trunk operate...


It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

My key fob for my 2006 LaCrosse unlocks the doors & opens the trunk, but doesn't lock the doors. Can it be cleaned, or does it need to be replaced?


It is not clear whether the problem is with the fob or the receiver in the car. You could try replacing the fob (they are available online from various sites) but the receiver will need to be programmed to use it, and that usually requires a trip to a dealership (unless you have access to the OEM service manual). Your best bet is to take it to a dealership and have them diagnose and repair the problem.

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.
