If you look very closely at the lid for the transponder the positive and negative symbols are shown.On the batteries themselves you will see the markings. Once you get them installed hold your lock or unlock button and make sure you infrared light is illuminating in the clear lens There may even be an l.e.d that illuminates. The problem is probably your synchronization. Put key in the door tumbler and turn it. then remove key and attempt to use central locking. You may find you have to put it in the ignition and turn to position 2. The resynch. procedure should be in your owners manual. Hopefully the vehicle starts and you didn't knock the microchip out of the key as well. Hopefully I have been helpful

I have the same problem sometimes
1 Check the condition of your battery, if old, it will not give full power required to communicate with the security system.
2 If you don't have the EKA of your RR, try this next time you get caught, put key in the drivers door look, press unlock button on key fob and at the same time turn to unlock, if all locks unlock then the engine should not be immobilized - Good luck

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Nissan altima key fob broke when dropped


The alarm will sound if the alarm was set before you dropped the key fob. Just put the key in the ignition and start the car, the alarm should turn off.

Hi,immobiliser problem?battery went flat,,managed to disable alarm on the fob,recharged battery,put new batterys in fob,ok for 2 days,fine in morning wouldnt immobilise in afternoon,put good second battery...


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

1996 dodge grand caravan le key fob doesn't work, batteries are good. Can I need to sync it or reset it?


I put a new battery in the key fob for a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, and, at first, it still didn't work. Took it to the Dodge Dealer, who said the fob was dead. NOT SO! My husband put a little piece of cardboard on top of the battery so the battery contact was improved, and the fob works fine now.
