Can't unlock my 2007 Chevy impala with the key fab until I unlock the door with the key. When I park the car and exit the vehicle I can lock it with the key fob, but after a few minutes I cannot.

Battery is weak in key fob. You will see a small slit in edge of key fob. Pry it open to see what battery you need. Most are pretty common, cheap and easy to find.

Hello Kenneth,
You should check the Key FOB. The FOB is not near enough to the sensor, so the car security system thinks you are trying to steal the car and therefore shuts it down. Maybe the battery in the FOB are weak?!
Good Luck.

My keyfob for sentra 2007 isn't working

Key fobs are battery operated. The battery may have died. I suggestgoing to an auto parts store. Many of them now have tester by the check out.You point your fob at the tester, push a button on the fob, and the tester will indicate whether it is working or not. There will be batteries there as well. Some testers are go-nogo machines. Some will register a weak signal, letting you know the fob works but the battery is weak. Good Luck.

Panic mode started out of the blue

or battery weak in fob?. replace them?
always have 2 fobs, so you can isolate problems and not get stranded.

is running engine charge lamp out?

or the button on the fob, panic, is bad,
to prove this take the battery out of FOB in use
and use the spare fob with fresh battery.
this proves its the fob, see how?

Immobilizer not disarming

lost both FOBS?
be happy, mine i must keep 3 working.... or cant make my own.
rule 1, never have 1 fob. or get stranded, , you will.....
so does other fob work?

1: check all fuses. both boxes
2: use only the key fob, no other keys on ring, for the test.
3: use the 2nd fob same way , now. with other key far away.
4: make sure battery voltage is 12.6vdc, 10.7v the IMMO goes belly up. (any $10 voltmeter , works)

5: have only 1 fob (transponder-key) near the ignition.
6: do not have other keys near Ignition switch. even just plain keys.
watch out, some after market keys are transponsers but look plain.
I have one for my car. button less fob. very trim, but is transponder key.
7: for sure not other transonder keys from other "cars or anything"

The Lamp means, your transponder key is dead. or scrambled.
buy a new battery for fob. the operator guide tells you what to do.
lost that?
on mine i put in a fresh coin cell and bam, it works.

on newer jeeps, if the IMMO thinks your are hacking the system.
it bricks the IMMO for 24hours, sucks huh?
for example, using a key from another car , in some odd way.
or doing same and battery is weak or remove from under hood.
it thinks its being attacked,, and goes stupid for 24hrs.
i dont think yours has this, , but mine does.

Remote start and door locks will only work from 10 feet or less

i had the same problem... go through the menu until you see reprogram remote. hit the check mark button and hold the lock and unlock button until the horn honks. key has to be on car not running though. You will eventually have to do it again but for some reason it will work for a while.
