SOURCE: lotus elise 2005 fob and key does not work

Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

My mitsubishi eclipse 95 gs wont start and theres no light on my dash bored it will cranck but wont start at all i need help asap


Since the engine cranks, the battery, starter motor/starter motor solenoid are most likely
good, so suspect everything else on the list. When you narrow it down, re-post with a
more specific question about that particular component, since 100s of components must operate
nearly perfectly for a vehicle to actually start.

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Battery Cable Connector -- Broken/Corroded/Loose.
4 Inspect Fuel Filter -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset (aka Spark Plug Wires) -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injectors -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer (inside fuel tank) -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainer.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC (faulty computer)
18 Inspect Fuel Tank -- Fuel Tank Empty.
19 Inspect Carburetor -- Carburetor Flooded or Faulty Choke.
20 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Worn, Loose, Cracked, or Incorrectly Installed Distributor Cap.
21 Inspect Distributor Rotor -- Worn, Loose, Burnt contact surface
22 Test/Inspect Neutral Safety Switch -- Faulty Neutral Safety Switch

I just replaced the battery. Car cranks but does not start. I dont think its the starter. what can it be?


Lotta things - first things to check are tune-up items: spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter,
rebreather filter, oil filter, fuel filter, in-tank fuel strainer, ignition control module/distributor cap/rotor,
PCV valve

Most probable cause: lack of spark from the ignition system
2nd most probable cause: engine starved for fuel due to fuel system problem: fuel filter, fuel pump,
in-tank fuel pump or clogged in-tank fuel strainer.

I have a 1995 Mercedes SL500 with 114,000 miles. The fuel filter was changed approximately 10,000 miles ago. The car has run fine except this last weekend. After filling the car with premium fuel the car...


your fuel pressure between 30-35psi is showing good at the moment. If you due suspect bad fuel pumps try and drive the vehicle with the fuel pressure gauge attached to monitor if it does drop when driving. Also make sure you have spark at all the spark plugs as a bad coil or a bad spark plug connector could be bad. They are available separately. You can also confirm this by doing a resistance check across the ignition wires. The ohm value should be printed on the spark plug connector. Generally they are about 2k ohms. No spark at one cylinder could cause the same symptoms but usually sets a code. The fuel pump will usually sound louder then normal when they are about to fail. Since there are two fuel pumps for the vehicle it is possible one of them is starting to fail. The throttle actuator can also cause drive ability problems but will generally cause the ASR light to come on. I would also look at the distributor caps and rotors as a potential cause as they can cause your symptoms with no check engine light. If possible drive the car with the fuel pressure gauge attached to monitor fuel pressure and with the engine at idle start pulling the spark plug connectors off and on to make sure the engine stumbles every time. Let me know what results you get and I will try to help further diagnose the issue.

1987 gmc jimmy wont start


yea you have no fuel and sound like a bad harness and the gm's are know for there fuel pump harness's! did you change it when you changed the pump? there is a lose connection somewhere in the fuel delivery system and it's pretty simply! i would check the fuel pump relay on the left hand side of the engine compartment and maybe even put power to the pump at the relay position "b" on the fuel pump relay harness and there should be a one pin connector to put power to also connected to the same position on the relay "b" the wire should be tan and white! good luck

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.
