Car wont start when doors wont unlock by remote

Sometimes when i go to unlock my car via remote, it wont unlock and then I have to use the key and when I try to start the car it wont start, after a period of time turning the key in the ignition again and again it finally starts. This is very frustrating, and I have also noticed that when the air con is on the speedometer will jump around, Unsure if it's all related or not? and to top it all off my horn does not work also ? Any thoughts on what this maybe ? Cheers

This sounds like a malfunctioning choke sub-system which is probably controlled by the engine control unit (computer).

The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep

1997 850 volvo, when i manually open door with key, the car won't start and lights flash....so now only use the remote, Now remote won't work - had new battery in remote- suggestions on how to lock doors?


Try this trick, push the lock button once your in the car to unlock first then lock then unlock again, your kill switch is activated as anyone could unlock the door with a key, but to be linked together via bluetooth remote is exclusive and good practice if you choose to stop a thief

My 2005 ford focus has a red light that just came on. It looks like a lock and now it wont start. What is this?


This is the key security system. Somehow youv'e set it off. Used the wrong key tried to open the door with the alarm on. Opened the door or trunk from the inside after locking it from the outside. If your the real owner of the car it'll be no problem to get it fixed. If you have the correct key lock the doors from the outside with the key and lock it twice ( the doors ( all of them ) should lock). Leave the car alone for a minute, maybe 5. Then unlock the door twice, all the doors should unlock the second time. Enter the car and start it with the key. If you with a remote door lock fob that can work too. If this fails then try a different door or even the trunk. Sometimes the driver doorlock switch wears out or gets ice in it and unlocking a different door or useing the remote can get you going again.

you need to reset alarm/immobiliser.lock car with remote, hold button down for 30 secs,then press/hold down unlock button,should reset.another way is with key in ignition/turned on, press alarm button down and hold for 30 secs.this resets immobiliser.toyota
systems vary..depending on market.

My alarm wont turn off. my car wont start. its a 2004 tiburon.


With alarm activated your ignition is disabled.Find the combination to disable it.With GM's you hold opposing buttons on the fob till it beeps twice. The dealer should help for no charge.

Key remote wont work even with new batteries


The remote likely needs to be reprogramed. If you have both remotes you will need to take these to the dealer and have them reprogramed.
