Question about 2007 Ford C-MAX 1.6

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

Recently got a keyless entry/start C-max (58 reg) and it has been fine for a few days. Last night the fob struggled to lock the car so I used a normal key. This morning the fob wouldn't do anything so I got into the car with the normal key and I couldn't find a way to start the car without using the start button. The ignition has no key slot. I guess I will have to get the fob battery replaced but any advice on if there is a way to start the car in the mean time is useful. :)

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.

SOURCE: keyless key pad entry code

Ford cars and such will put a sticker on the hinge or back gate with the numbers on it. It will just be a white sticker with black numbers. A five digit code.

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

How does key fob work


Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:

1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking).
2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.

When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.

Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.

Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.


Hope this helps....

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.

Don't understand buttons on keyless entry remote fob.


If it is a factory remote it is either for the trunk release or the "panic" feature. Are the buttons not labeled?

2001 Chevy cavalier Z24 keyless entry not working.


You should have it scaned to see if you have any codes. It has a RCDLR (remote control door lock reciever) this is the module that recieves the signal from the fobs. If it has a problem then the system will not work. If it has to be replaced then a dealer will have to program it for you. Good Luck
