Hi I have Lost the BLACK TOUCH KEY and have been using the master RED TOUCH KEY for a few years now. Someone said it wasn't good to do this as that every time you use the red key it is going into programming mode (Car starts ok though). But latley te red key was crushed by the boot lid and is on its last legs. Have bought a SELCA IM 3.22 Full kit off ebay (cheaper than buying the 2 keys), Bargain, but NO INSTRUCTIONS ... can you help?? Andy Marshall

Is this a USA model? what exactly is the car year make and model, we don't have Escorts here. have u checked your owners manual for programming instructions, if u can do it without the trip to the dealer it will be in there, if this is a Ford as i assume it is.

    u are going to have to contact the maker of the alarm for programming instructions, but based on my 35 years of aftermarket alarm system like yours the system has failed and the new remotes won't fix the problem.

    like i said you need to contact the alarm maker, we can't help here, guess u just don't want to admit that is true, well good luck mate.

Can you help with power windows?


What type of vehicle? Does the drivers window work?

May 01, 2015 | Cars & Trucks

WHY2003 BLAZER ALL POWER WINDOWS NOT WORKING?


A wiring problem or the driver's master switch, probably. Check for broken wires in the harness going into the driver's door opening. A dark green wire is the power wire to the switch (from a 30 amp circuit breaker in the relay block). and a black ground wire from the switch going back into the cabin.
Pull the master switch out and check for power on the dark green wire at the connector, with key on. If no power, wire may be broke from the circuit breaker to the switch, probably in the door opening. If power is good, check the ground circuit from the switch connector to ground. Like this: voltmeter positive lead on the green wire terminal with key on, voltmeter negative lead on the black wire terminal. If voltmeter registers battery voltage, power and ground is good. If no voltage shows on voltmeter, power or ground is bad. Move voltmeter negative lead to a good ground on frame or body. If voltage shows, power is good and ground is lost-look for broken black wire in door opening. Check for the black ground just inside the cabin from door-maybe under the driver's kick panel.
If both power and ground is good to the master switch, try a new or used master switch.

Lost our key that turns off horn


Ok well Lord knows I have lost a few keys! Let the horn blow away!

Just kidding locate the horn should be in the front grill or fender well. And unplug it for the trip to the Nisson Dealership they should have a master key and will order you a new key if not in stock. And don't forget to plug it back in when you get the new key. Hope this helps. good luck

Electric windows not working


Check the fuses first and then the window switches themselves. You will have to remove them and put a meter on them. You can cross the wires to see if the window will go up or down. If you can do it by crossing the wires then the switch is bad.

Anti theft system engine may not restart


In most cases you have to get the computer reflashed or reprogrammed to your car including the VATS key code.

All power windows don't work


Dealers-hmmph.
You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

Can you push it off and pop the clutch in 2nd gear to start.

Lost all power. locks windows radio key ****. battery good.


Sounds like a master fuse, or a fusible link.

Using a volt meter with one end grounded, start at the positive post of the battery. Touch the probe there. Good power? try the clamp. Good power, try the other end of the positive battery cable.

Keep moving down the wiring away from the battery until there is not good power. Whatever device or connection you moved past when you no longer found good power is the culprit.
