Question about 2008 Toyota Prius Hybrid

1 Answer

My car won't start

Key will not unlock doors with button, I pressed the power button and it turned orange. Then the check engine light came on. I just changed the oil, my lights were off, and the engine light was not on when I drove it this morning. Only half of the doors were locked when I came out to my car, which leads me to believe it is the key itself. Help!

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on

I talked to you on the live chat, and I think that you may have missed the end of my typing...

What I went on to say is that more often than not, on the 02 4Runners, the Check and VSC lights in tandem look mainly after the emission system, and, since you stated no issues during the road test, I would guess that it is a fuel issue (too full/loose gas cap). But, if you can get the vehicle scanned, I will be very glad to provide you with more and better info if you provide me with the DTC codes. That would require your guy or an autozone hookup to a scan tool. I hope my clarification helps; and the graciouness of a FIxYa rating for this question would be greatly appreciated

Sounds electrical/relay to me if you cannot lock by pressing the lock button on the door itself. Driver and passenger acting the same AND the remote all the same result point to only one culprit.
Let me know how it goes and best of luck!

SOURCE: can not lock car by key remote . toyota rav 4 53 plate

If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

The alarm goes off when you open the door and the car will not start, but has power


Try pressing the lock and unlock buttons on the remote, holding for a few seconds, then trying the unlock and lock buttons to see if the alarm disarms...your description indicates the car alarm is still armed!

98 cherokee turns over but won't start no power to wiring at fuel pump an on the dash ther is a orange key with a line throw it what does it mean


This indicator light is related to the vehicle security system, which checks that the key you are using is authentic. If it is flashing, you have a key with no chip in it, a bad ring antenna, or other fault in the security system.
Instructions
    • 1Turn the ignition switch off.
    • 2Insert the key into the driver's side door.
    • 3Turn the key clockwise to lock it.
    • 4Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock it. The alarm system recognizes an authorized key was used and the system resets.
      As a side note if that doesnt work try it in the rear hatch. good luck hope this helped.

I have a bmw 330i and the doors will not lock using key, i have replaced the key but it didnt solve the problem... what needs to be replaced?


if the door locks work manually with using the key in the door then probably will need to just reprogram/initialize the key especially if its a new key. if the power door locks dont work at all using the key manually then first check the fuse.

initializing key:
all these steps must be completed within 15 sec. of cycling the key i.e. turning the key off
step 1: get in vehicle close all doors and trunk
step 2: turn ignition on tell all dash lights are on but engine is not started
step 3: turn ignition off pull key out
step 4: press and hold the unlock botton down while then at the same time press the lock button three times in a row
step 5: door locks should initializ at this point they will lock and unlock on there own to show process is completed

2004 Passat TDI won't start


using the key,lock car/hold key over for 30 secs,then press/hold unlock button for 30 secs,that resets the alarm/immobiliser.OR does the pre heater coil light up orange then go out so that you can start car,or are you trying to start the car too soon or waiting too long after the light goes out.also try spare key,sometimes key looses code...as the pre heater is operated by opening the drivers door any delay...
have you tried wynns/redexe diesel treatment,could be dirty injectors.....
after trying all the above and you have no joy, come back to me, ta!
