SOURCE: I have a 1995 Mercedes Benz s320 and my doors wont lock

There is a central door locking pump under the back seat, the motor has gone in it, cheap way to repair is to strip it down and put a motor in it from a tyre compreser from argos for under £10 very easy to fit just two wires

How to get into programming mode to program a remote?


Few Toyota models came equipped with remote door locks before 2008 - surprisingly!

Your car may not have the radio receiver to work with door locks. In that case, you need the radio and some wireing to pair with your remotes.

Bypass the theft deterrent module


The security light is a indicator that one of the parts of the antitheft system is failing, this then disables parts of the car due to the antitheft thinking that the car is being stolen. You may have broken something while turning the ignition when trying to learn your key fob. Did you make sure to pull the radio fuse before trying the key fob process? A lot of GM's 2000 to 2004ish ran the antitheft thru the radio. Its really hard to tell. Here is a link that explains the anti theft system. A lot of information and some ways to get around the system.

Here is what i found for reprogramming your key fob remote

1. Be sure ignition is OFF.

2. Remove RADIO fuse from fuse box. Fuse will be number 17 and located at LH side of instrument panel.

3. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 3 times within 5 seconds ending in the RUN position. Off is the position where you can remove your key and Run is the position shy of starting your vehicle (do not crank engine or start vehicle). Be sure you are turning the key from off to run quickly.

4. Doors will Lock and Unlock indicating entry into programming mode.

5. Hold Lock and Unlock at the same time on first remote for approximately 15 seconds. Vehicle will respond by locking and unlocking doors indicating successful programming.

6. Repeat step 5 for each additional remote including working remotes.

7. Switch ignition off. Replace RADIO fuse. Test all remotes.

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.

Resetting 1998 honda civic remote control


ok here is the porcedure that i have for it

Remember , these steps must be preformed within 5 seconds of eachother also all doors should be closed, radio and lights turned off

im not sure what you mean by a bypass, you can always just not use the remotes and go into the body control computer and turn off keyless entry

1) Unlock Doors
2) Turn ignition key to "ON" position (II)
3) Press the "LOCK" or "UNLOCK" button on the remote
4) Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position (0, I)
5) Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position
6) Press lock or unlock
7) Turn key to off position
8) on position
9) lock or unlock
10) off position
11) on position
12)lock or unlock - doors should cycle to indicate successful programming. If you only have one remote, turn ignition to off or don't touch anything. if you have 2+ remotes, go to 13:
13) lock on each transmitter that you need to program

*Steps 2-12 must be performed within 5 seconds of each other. Step 13 can be performed within 10 seconds of step 12.

A maximum of four remote controls are allowed to be programmed:

ALMERA
ALMERA TINO

TERANO II

Ensure all the doors have been unlocked, either by using a good transponder key or remote
control plip key.

Procedure:
1. Turn the ignition switch from Position 0 to ON 6 times within 10 seconds.
2. Next, turn ignition switch to OFF position. Leave key in ignition switch.
3. Wait 2 seconds then the system will enter programming mode and will flash the warning
lights twice.
4. Press and HOLD the unlock button on the Plip.
5. While pressing the unlock button, press the lock button 3 times.
6. Release the unlock button.
7. The warning lights will flash once to indicate successful programming.

9. When completed turn ignition ON, and the warning lights will flash 2 times.
10. Remove key, and check all plip key's for operation.
NOTE : The programming mode will stop when either the ignition is switch ON, 4 plip keys
have been programmed or no input signal either from the switch or plip keys has been received
