Let me get this right, you purchased a car without a key for said vehicle to start the vehicle? First off I would worry if the vehicle is stolen or not. If the vehicle is not stolen, then you will have to take the VIN to a dealer and have a key cut and program the key to your car. This will cost you an arm and a leg for a $10 key. It is best to have a spare key in case of lose of the original, so be prepared to lose both your arms and legs.

SOURCE: Keyless Entry Key Doesn't Work

Regarding the remote transmitter issue: Take the remote transmitter to your Toyota dealer. Ask them to test your transmitter with their hand-held RF detector. All Toyota dealers are required to have one of these devices. The RF detector will test the remote to see if it is indeed transmitting the proper RF out of the transmitter, and the strength of the RF signal. If there is no signal, the remote has failed (unfortunatly common), and the remote will need to be replaced and reprogrammed to the vehicle. I do this quite regularly, and rarely do I tell customers taht they need to spend 800 dollars for such a simple diagnosis/fix. The keyless system is very reliable. I rarely change the ECU for the keyless, unless somebody somehow gets the ECU wet, then it def needs replaced. Hope this helps.

Can a 98 durango be started without a key


If the vehicle is stock, then the answer is no.
But, you can purchase and have installed a remote start system that allows you to start the vehicle from a FOB remote key, like keyless entry. But you would still have to insert the key and turn the ignition on to drive the vehicle.

What is this Chevrolet part for?


It is not for keyless entry but the built in theft deterrent. Which means if the car is started without a key it keeps the instrument cluster (Speedometer, Gas, RPM, Etc.) from working. It is a lot harder for a thief to drive with no speedometer.

The alarm system has activated and we cannot disarm the system via the Remote Key Fob or by key at the doors or hatchback. Tried disconnecting battery same problem. When the doors open the system...


Hi Edward:
In dashboard, your THEFT warning light is blinking? If the answer is yes, your antotheft system is activated and will need restart and resynchonized. This occurs when battery is disconneting or other un-authorized key is used.

Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) are protected from vehicle theft andunauthorized entry. VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made toenter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights andparking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

VTSS system arms when ignition is off, vehicle is exited, door is locked using power door locks and door isclosed. Alternatively a remote keyless entry transmitter can be used to arm system. A security light on panelwill flash for 15 seconds to indicate system is arming. At the end of 15 seconds, if no door, hood or tailgate isopened, system is armed.

If alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes, and lights will flash for an additional 15 minutes. If hornsounds 3 times when either front door is unlocked, vehicle has been tampered with (tamper alert). If doors arelocked manually or with key, system will not arm (manual override). If an unauthorized entry does occur, VTSSsystem signals Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to prevent vehicle from being driven. PCM reduces injectorpulse width to zero, causing a start and stall condition.

System can be disarmed with the keyless entry transmitter, or by using key to enter vehicle. In both instances, if alarm was activated, vehicle alarm will be terminated. If battery is disconnected and reconnected, alarm will beactivated and it will be necessary to disarm system as indicated.

How does key fob work


Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:

1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking).
2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.

When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.

Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.

Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.


Hope this helps....

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

Keyless entry & mystery key


the spare key that you found could be a non-programmed key that the old owners used as a hide-a-key so that if a thief found it they still could not steal the car, have you tried the 6 digit code for the door? it's a long shot but who knows? a dealer would have a reset precedure but I do not have it, hopefully someone else will chime in and help you find that without having to go through the dealer
