Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Remote Start I had the dealer install the system. It is supposed to be configured so that one press opens drive side door and a second press opens all the other doors. This is sporadic. If the car has been sitting for less than three hours, it works fine. When it's longer (it has happened at 8 hours or longer), it opens all the doors on the first press. When it was originally installed, it opened all the doors. They did some work on it to supposedly correct this. It's almost like it's reverting to the original programming that was done when it was first installed. Any suggestions? I've already been to multiple websites (including directed.com...the support website).

The electric motor that pulls the lock button up and down has failed, you will need to pull the door panel to replace it. Yes it is fairly common.

SOURCE: Door will not slide automatically; emits loud beeping noise

Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get nothing...no movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?

2001 Mercury Villager keyless remote is malfunctioning


Keyless Entry
The keyless entry system consists of the following:
  • smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
  • keyless entry remote transmitters
  • power door lock actuators
  • body side door power door lock actuator
  • liftgate actuator
  • power door lock switches
  • door ajar switches
  • Principles of Operation
    All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
    The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
    • The ignition key still in the ignition.
    • A front door is open.
    • A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
    The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
If it is you need a new one .

I have a 2000 nissan primera and when i open the door the hazard lights flash then stop when i start the engin is this ment to happen?


No, its not supposed to happen. It sounds like you have a fault with the alarm system. When you open the door, it thinks its being entered illegaly, but when you put the key in the ignition contact, it recognises that the key is correct and will allow you to start the engine. You should take it to the dealer to check for the fault. Has the battery been disconnected recently ? or has the battery been replaced in the remote handset ?
It may be that the system requires resetting. To reprogramme the handset, do this -
obtain all keys
switch ignition on and off 6 times within 10 seconds
after 2 seconds, indicators will flash twice
press and hold unlock button
press lock button 3 times
release unlock button
indicators will flash once
if required repeat button procedureto programme remaining key remote handsets
switch ignition on
indicators will flash twice
remove key from ignition switch
check operation of all programmed key remote handsets

That should do it, if not then as i said you would have to go to the dealer.
Hope that helps

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected

Remote start function on remote doesn't work for a 2005 Pontiac G6.


Replace battery first and see if that help, if not then follow steps below, if you cant figure it out or it still doesn't work, or take it to the dealer, it could be remote module is faulty. Keep the windows open as a safety measure, then,

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

Close all of the doors.

Close the liftgate.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.

Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, & then back to ACC within 1 second.

Open & close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.

Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.


Press & hold the transmitter LOCK & UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.

Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.

Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

Key for my Suzuki Aerio 2003


Don't buy it from the dealer, just buy a used remote from eBay. Use these instructions to program it.

1. Confirm that all doors are closed and the ignition key is out of the ignition cylinder.
2. Open the driver's door.
3. Within 10 seconds, Insert key into ignition turn to ON position and back to OFF and remove the key.
4. Within 20 seconds, close and open the drivers door 3 times. (Drivers door should be open)
5. Within 10 seconds, insert key into ignition turn to ON position and back to OFF and remove the key.
6. Press and hold both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the same remote for at least 5 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock (that's a very good sign)
7. Within 5 seconds, press the LOCK button on the same remote and release. You just programmed your remote ??

Remote Start on 2008 Toyota 4Runner will not start truck


Is it a Toyota remote start, or an aftermarket remote start? If it is a Toyota remote start, make sure the hood and doors are all closed. press lock twice, then press lock a 3rd time and hold it for 3 or 4 seconds. It then should beep once, and a few seconds later start up. OR the lights will flass once, twice, or etc. Usually this means there's something wrong and the number of flashes is a diagnostic code of sorts. If this is the case, take it in to your dealer for further assistance. This part should be covered under the 3/36000 warranty.

If it is an aftermarket system, it will probably be a similar situation. It may be a misadjusted hood pinswitch, or even some blatent mistake the installer made installing it.
