SOURCE: key fob will not undo

If you don't have one that works for the vehicle now, you'll have to take it to your local dealer to have it programmed to the vehicle. Some will charge for this, some will do it at no charge.

If you do have a remote that is programmed and working for the vehicle, then the following steps will allow you to program another remote:

1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold the unlock button on the working key fob and hold for 4 seconds, then also press the panic button.

5. Release both buttons and you should hear a single chime to indicate it is in program mode. You have 30 seconds after the chime to program any additional remotes you want to program.

6. Press and release both the unlock and lock buttons simultaneously on the remote you are programming. You should hear another single chime.

7. Within 4 seconds after hearing the chime, press either lock or unlock button on remote that you are programming.

SOURCE: Car will not unlock.

To get inside the car .... Use the key in the lock cylinder, unlock the drivers door to get inside. You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob unless it or the keyless module was changed. There may be a blown fuse that supplies the keyless control module (check the owners manual for location). or wires that lead into the Drivers door may be damaged ... The keyless module is located inside the drivers door at the bottom behind the door panel ... do the unlock/lock and trunk release switches on the inside of the drivers door operate the locks and or trunk release? If so it is not the fuse ... and not the wires to it ... And it could be your BCM body control module, located in the dash board to right of your gas petal. Because the number entry keypad (code for that is on the inside of the right passenger trunk bracket arm) also doesn't work I assume it's not the key fobs themselves. Your 98 manual is correct for your car.

SOURCE: could a bad neutral safety switch cause my car not

HI. Yes, this is possible, but there are other reasons for this issue, as well. Use this step by step troubleshooting procedure to help isolate the issue. Step 4 deals with the neutral switch issues.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4

Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

SOURCE: How to program a used

Hi,

If this is an used FOB,you will need to take it back to the dealer as the only way to program the fob is with a scan tool. They should do it for free any way as they lost the progra.

Procedure to program NEW FOB :-

Programming The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Module
1. Unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System.
2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch.
3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting the engine.
4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum five seconds (maximum ten seconds).
5. While still holding the UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press the PANIC button and release both at the same time. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s).
6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press and release any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful.
7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle, up to 4 total.
8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s).
9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Kindly accept my solution.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Anti thief light not blinking. Car wont start. key fob red light will flash but car wont turn on


If it doesn't start with the key either. Remove the aftermarket alarm/remote start system. Some thing you might check first is the neutral safety switch. On the transmission close to the shifter cable. Any way. after market alarms don't last that long. Even the best on the market seem to only last about 6 to 7 years. Cheap ones are lucky to last up to 2 years. Once the start going out, they can cause all sorts of different problem.

Car will not turn over it has a new battery ,starter and selinoid and alternator. ItS a 1992 Cadillac Devvile kop


Power goes from ignition switch to neutral safety switch then to starter. Neutral safety switch used to be on steering column. Find wire harness for switch. Verify power is coming to harness when key is in start position. If not then bad ign switch or blown fuse. If power is coming to neutral safety switch but not going to starter then either bad switch or out of adjustment. Try putting car in neutral and starting then back to park. Or you have funky aftermarket alarm that is disabling starter. Also if car was financed thru small car dealership they may have put gps with starter disable on it. This helps remind you that payment is due. You can run jumper wire to starter solenoid to make starter turn over. That would be the small terminal.

Vehicle has power but want turn over


If you are saying the truck has power at the battery but the engine will not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.

you may have a bad door switch, theres a switch on the drivers door lock, when door is unlocked with fob or key the switch is activeated to shut alarm down,the lock moves to hit switch with key or fob,so if the switch is bad it will not shut down alarm, i would start there,door panel has to be remove,then latch has to be remove to get to switch, then test with a meter see if it opens and closes the connection, hope this helps.
