Question about Volkswagen Eurovan

1 Answer

My key fob alarm does not work on my VW Touran and the key will not go into the barrel.

I pulled up at home as normal, took the key out of the ignition, as normal. But then the car fob alarm just didn't work. I have two key fobs so I tried the other one which also didn't work. I can lock the car with the key but the key will not go into the ignition and therefore it will not start.

Hi, it sounds like the ignition barrel has got stuck a bit, try tapping the area around the barrel with your hand or rubber ended screwdriver, do not put any oil or spray lubricant in the barrel as this can damage it, your VW dealer will have some lubricant specially for ignition barrels so take it to them

SOURCE: key fob will not undo

If you don't have one that works for the vehicle now, you'll have to take it to your local dealer to have it programmed to the vehicle. Some will charge for this, some will do it at no charge.

If you do have a remote that is programmed and working for the vehicle, then the following steps will allow you to program another remote:

1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold the unlock button on the working key fob and hold for 4 seconds, then also press the panic button.

5. Release both buttons and you should hear a single chime to indicate it is in program mode. You have 30 seconds after the chime to program any additional remotes you want to program.

6. Press and release both the unlock and lock buttons simultaneously on the remote you are programming. You should hear another single chime.

7. Within 4 seconds after hearing the chime, press either lock or unlock button on remote that you are programming.

What's a 99.5 Jetta?

Anyway, there should be a button battery located in the key fob. Swap that out and you may be able to use it like normal. Another option is for your to try disconnecting the battery. There is a chance this will reset your alarm and you can use your car as normal. Or the alarm will just go off. These things are finicky.

If you lock the car with the key, you must open it with the key, or alarm will sound. If you lock on fob you must open on fob. If you use ke y, place in ignition quickly to silent alarm. Good luck

Key fob wont re set on my ssan yan rexton


I recently changed the battery on my key fob for my ssanyong rexton. I then did the following for the key fob to make it work. 1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold both buttons on key fob until red light on fob stays on. Then let go of both buttons. Then pressed the alarm button then the panic button, somthing like that. To be fair the button sequence after the red light came on is a bit vague. The alarm was blaring so i was happy when it just stopped.

Is your 2nd key fob giving you the same problem?

Have you change the battery inside the key fob?


Check the mirror for alarm/immobilize indicator.

If you using a dead key fob then alarm system will immobilize the ignition system.

I need to somehow reset my factory alarm on my 1995 Nissan Maxima


this is how most nissans program the key fobs.
get in the car and manually lock the drivers door with the door switch.
put the key in and out of the ignition about 10 or 12 times until the hazard lights flash once.
turn the key to the ignition setting so all the dash lights are on,but do not start the car.
click the lock button on the remote fob.the hazards should flash once to confirm.
turn off ignition and remove the key.
unlock the drivers door and open the door.
the remote should now work.
if that does not work,the dealer can reprogram the fob with the obd diagnostic system.
