Can't start 58 keyless C-Max as possible dead battery on fob

Bough a used C-Max 2.0 tdi car on Friday. It is keyless entry and keyless start (power button is on the dash) Been away for the weekend and all worked fine. Last night I couldn't lock it as the fob seemed to go dead. Locked it with a normal key instead. Noticed keyless entry wasn't working after that. Big issue came this morning when trying to start it. As there is no ignition (I assume anyway) the spare key can't start the car. I can get in but can;t make it go. Is there a workaround or have I just missed something? (I will try a new battery in the fob asap but can't do it right away. I'm looking for a way to start the car without the keyless system.)

SOURCE: My car is acting crazy!

" turn the key on engine off 8 times. the doors will lock and unlock. push one of the buttons on the key fob and the doors will lock and unlock. do this for each remote that you have. when you are done turn the key off. the door locks will lock and unlock. the remote fob should work after this."

SOURCE: Truck having trouble starting.

With the engine running remove the positive battery cable, if the engine continues to run the alternator is good and the battery is probably bad. If the engine dies then the opposite is true.

SOURCE: car still won't start

The taurus is equipped with what is called a PATS (passive anti theft) that wont let the car start until it recognizes the key in the ignition, some things to check, first when you put the key in and turn the car to run (not start) does the theft light blink fast in the dash or is there a red on light on the dash that starts blinking? if so it is a PATS problem, the only ones I know of that can program keys are dealers, if the car wont turn over it probably is not a fuel pressure issue, the most common thing would be the PATS keys either unprogrammed or somthing wrong with the module. hope this helps

SOURCE: 2005 F150 Keyless Entry

There is a technical service bulletin out on this probelm on 2004/2005 F150.
ISSUE: Some 2004-2005 F-150 vehicles built through 2/7/2005, may exhibit an inoperative keyless entry keypad. This may be due to the vehicle security module (VSM) not being configured to accept keyless entry keypad input.

The fix is to reprogam the vehicle security module with as-built data. So it would have to go to the dealer to do this.
The tsb number is 05-5-5.

Keyless entry lock and panic button work. However when pressing the unlock button the locks do not move but the panic button comes on.


the car came with 2 fobs
are both bad, why not try the other fob. never run any car with 1 fob
always have a good spare, or it can get very costly fast.

did you replace the battery in the fob yet, (yes do both , they are both at end of life, for sure) and are dirt cheap, compared to $100 shop labor rates + , why not use an ASE independent shop,,,?

you bought a key, so ... shoe drops.

Can't start 58 reg Keyless entry/start C-Max


Check your Owners Kit for a Owners ID Card is about all I can add. The Security system is suppose to read your chip in the FOB. All I can think of is to have the Keyless Entry Card in hand(inside Kit) while you touch the Start button.
Disconnecting the car battery will reset the Security or do any good, because your car wants a Signal from something. I am guessing Ford would have to give you something to substitute for a dead FOB.
If not, shame on Ford. They finally created a problem by getting too fancy and forgetting basic accessibility. You might try leaving the Key turned in the outside door and then pressing the Start button or entering the Keyless Code. Just don't forget to pull the keys out of the door if the engine starts.

Does sound like the battery - these cars are really sensitive to low voltages. After new battery fitted - cycle the car close + open with the fob - if this does not respond enter the car using the key and also use the key to immediately start the engine. Then check that the fob is okay - you may have a bad fob battery and its possible that the fob has lost its identity ? Hope this helps - good luck

1996 tl keyless entry


Do you have a keyless entry FOB. If you do replace the battery then program the system. Unlock the doors turn the ignition key to the "ON" position then press either the lock or unlock button of the FOB turn the ignition key off.Now turn the ignition key on again and press either button on the FOB. Turn the ignition off again. Do this 3 times. This initiates programming for the power door locks. Press the lock button of each remote one at a time to be stored in memory. this must be done within 10 seconds of each remote.
3 remotes max. Turn the ignition off and remove the key to complete programming procedure. then test each remote.

Dead battery, can't open doors


If you have the keyless entry system, you either have a dead battery in the car, or in your key fob. Regardless, you can gain entry to the vehicle using the emergency key concealed inside your fob. Press the narrow button near the metal end of the fob to separate the parts. They metal piece has a key attached that fits into the lock on the driver's door.

2004 Chevy Impala Keyless Entry System Stopped Working


Do the power door locks work when used with the switches located on the interior doors? If so, then it sounds to me like you got a problem with your key fob. Probably a dead battery in it.
