SOURCE: Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work

This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.

SOURCE: hi,immobiliser problem?battery went flat,,managed to

Hi it sounds like you have done everything you can do, it now looks like your going to need to get the immobilizer reset, this can be done at most garages but its best if you shop around to see the best price you can get as its not cheap.

have you tried locking the door with the key and then opening it with the key then try the car see if it will work.

failing that its going to need the imob re-programming so that it accepts your key fob, it may just be that you need the fob replacing as the chip inside could have failed they will be able to test all this for you.

let me know if you need further assistance, not that theirs much more i can do without being their with the equipment to test the immobilizer, hopefully it will just be the fob that needs replacing.

you could just try one last thing when you get in the car and put the key in the ignition try holding the fob as close as you can to the ignition barrel as this is where it picks the signal up from so try holding it close to their and see if that then lets you start the car

failing that its going to be a trip to the garage.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

This sounds like a bad control or broken wire inside the door, you will need to remove the door panel and check for broken wires, also remove the controls and make sure all connectors are connected good and tight, this is where i would start also just check all of the fuses.

I have a 99.5 tdi jetta a night ago I locked my car using my key fob which armed the system I recently went to unlock my car to disarm the system but my key fob did not work so the alarm is still armed I...


What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

Hyundai alarm


I was having the same issue and just disconnected the hood switch cabling completely. This not only solved my 3 am alarms for no reason but also allows the car to arm the rest of the system, by beeping and flashing lights when arming with the keyfob.

1998 Pontiac Bonneville, Horn & Lights go off for no reason


leave the car unlocked to see if it does it. it sounds as if the bcm is defective or perhaps a door sensor. is the car kept in a garage? check to make sure you don't have animal prints on the car. sounds wierd, but an animal can shake the car just enough to trigger the alarm. then by the time you get to the car it is gone.

The battery keeps dying and the alarm keeps going off. Alarm switch inside car does nothing to stop it.


Does the battery hold charge? Have you load tested the new battery or left the new battery disconnected for a couple of days to see if it is holding charge.
It does not happen often but the new battery could still be the problem.
The other way to find out what is going on is to remove one or two car fuses inside the dash at the end of each day and if the car battery is not flat the following day you have narrowed down the fault.

This is a malfunction of the alarm system, possible that the processor was triggered. if there was some rodents or creatures that had triggered then it would have gone on till you went around to switch off.... it works for a time period.
Check the leads of the alarm unit, Then ARM the car and try to shake the car to see if there is any reaction to confirm.

Check timing belt. Remove the oil filler cap and look at the rocker arm. If you get someone to turn the engine while you watch and you see no movement... it's a broken belt. If you see movement, perhaps the belt has slipped. Replace belt and re time.
