Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2010 Toyota Venza with the push start convenience package. My key fob stopped working a couple of weeks ago. It won't do anything. The car doesn't recognize it. The doors won't unlock. The car won't start when I enter it with the normal key. The trunk won't lift. It's completely dead. My husband's spare fob also appears to be on the brink of dying soon. This week he's had a couple of instances where the car didn't respond to his key fob, but then it started working again. We're worried about being stranded somewhere. We're going to purchase a new battery for mine and see if that works. We read that it may need to be reprogrammed after a new battery is inserted. We've searched for instructions on how to do this ourselves, but they all include steps to enter the master key into the ignition - this won't work for us because we have a push start ignition. Does anyone have instructions on how to reprogram the key fob with a push start convenience package? We're going to try this on my fob first before we risk messing up my husband's fob, since it's the only remaining one that works....but probably not for long. We don't want to pay a fortune at the dealership to fix this issue.

SOURCE: Hi! My name is Sharon

Hi, the key fob has contacts on a circuit board, much like a remote control for a tv, or a calculator. These contacts are what the buttons touch, to make it work. the buttons, or contacts may be dirty, with a carbon film on them causing the two buttons not to work, leaving only 1 functional. If you take it apart, much like putting a new battery in, you can actually pop out the green circuit board, and see the contacts. These can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Try cleaning the contacts, and the back side of the buttons. A re program is not in order, because you have 1 function, and will either work as a whole, or none at all. If cleaning does not work, You may need a new fob. Good luck...coop442000

Does the remote key for push button start have anything to do with it not starting


If the remote is damaged the car might not start. If battery in remote is dead it also might not start. However, there should be a key fob slot somewhere inside the car ( usually around the driver side knee area or inside center console ). I never worked on a 2013 Accord so I don't know the exact location, but your Service Manual should show you exactly where it is located. From my experience with Nissan dead key fob has to be in slot for car to start. Lexus/Toyota you have to tap push button START/STOP couple times with the remote fob for it to start.

This one you may be stuck paying the 50 dollars but what I would do first is contact the manufacturer of the remote control. I would bet they will help you out. The other option is to go to an after market installer of car alarms that is a bit smaller. They will most likely help you in the hopes of you coming back for further business.

2010 Toyota venza started making noise in the front end sounds like mud grips roaring on the road. we replaced the tires as they had 51000 miles, but the sound did not stop


A couple of ideas for you.
1) When the tires were replaced, in the process of doing that , the car was lifted off the ground somehow, causing the front wheels to "drop".
Please check most carefully the plastic liners ( there are several) that surround the wheels, and see if one or some are rubbing the tires whilst you are driving down the lane.
2) If that is not the problem, jack up one front wheel at a time, and block or "scotch" the other three, and start the engine, and engage the transmission, and see if you might have a bad wheel bearing. ( it should be noisy).
You may choose, ever so carefully, to use a "mechanic's stethoscope", which is a long handled screwdriver, wherein you put the wood handle to your ear, and the metal tip at various places under the car to try to identify the source of the noise.
God bless your efforts.

I have the 2010 Toyota Venza push to start. I lost the original key, so i bought a new key with the remote and its was programmed successful but this remote only had the three buttons on it, instead of four buttons ( Including the Hutch button). So i bought another new remote with the four buttons today and I want to know if it will work when i switch the programmed key into the new remote?
