Question about Cars & Trucks

My 202 doorbell does not "react" if the button is pushed AFTER my neighbor unlocks his car by using his remote key. Can I change the frequency range of the doorbell?

Asked the neighbor to use the key to unlock his car AFTER I checked the function of the bell (was ok) and... after the car was unlocked... the doorbell didn't react to the push button! My guess: they both work on a similar frequency and the bell "got confused". I have to switch the bell off.... wait 10 sec... power up and - works.

Just a thought if the bell is wireless your diagnosis may just be coincidental, but look to at swapping out the battery. can you press the bell, say 5 times one after the other ok? Batteries sometimes recharge slightly between presses, maybe just pressing it twice once after each other doesn't work.

    No... the batteries are fine. It's just when the neighbor unlocks his car by using his "remote" key

    Wow, never heard of that before, just a though though, as for a solution, I would talk to the manufaturer and argue the 'not fit for purpose' to try and get it returned for refund. Would imagine they'll be keen to know which car manufacturer causes the problems

SOURCE: programming keyless remote

2003-04 Mazda 6 REMOTE PROGRAMMING


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

Good Luck.

I have found a ridiculous solution for this door lock issue. As many people have mentioned, it does involve the control panel under the driver side dash. I noticed that if I pushed the control panel/fusebox in while working the key fob and/or door lock switch, IT WORKED! So, my silly solution was to insert a t-ball (regulation size) between the fusebox/control panel and the paneling closest to the driver on the top side of the fusebox. IT WORKS!!

Glad I didn't spend $500 for Toyota dealer to fix.

Hope my son doesn't miss his t-ball!!

My 2004 Town and country van had to be jump started and now key fob won't lock or unlock doors.Took key fob to locksmith he said key fob was working, van was not reading signal and he didn't know what


The fob may need to be reprommed to the car. Do the following:

Grab your working remote. Push the LOCK button five times, allowing exactly two seconds to pass between each press of the LOCK button. Insert the ignition key and turn it to RUN. Push and hold UNLOCK on the working remote for 6 seconds. Push and hold PANIC for one second while continuing to hold UNLOCK. Release both buttons at the same time.
Push any button on the remote to program it. Then push any button on the remote that was already programmed. It has to be reprogrammed. The remote is now programmed to the vehicle. Turn the key to OFF.

I changed the battery in the alarm key and now it doesnt work at all. what did i do wrong?


Vehicle key fobs work on a continuosly and randomly changing frequency so that no ones key fob should open anyone elses cars. Whenever you press the buttons, or someone unlocks your doors, the frequency is changed. The fob and computer in the car have a few codes stored so that if you press the button too many times out of range of the car it will still know what frequency should be transmitting. However if your battery dies, or you press the button too many times while out of range, you Fob and computer will be out of sync.

Long story short you may need to have your Fob re-programmed. You may fine this info in your owners manual, but will probably have to go to the dealer.

The other issue it could be is something i have heard of a few times for the chrysler FOBs, the solder in the fob that holds the connection for the battery may have broken, which will mean your battery is not connected right. You may want to consider popping it apart and taking a look to see if the solder is cracked at all.

Well someone in your neighbor hood has nearly the same remote code as lucky you have. That is why only certain things are affected. If they had the exact code your car remote would react exactly to your commands and the unknown users commands. A household television or remote ceiling fan will doo the same.

If that works, now see if the remote will unlock the door or doors..i remember reading in an owners manual once where you can program which doors open and close by they way you press and hold down the two main buttons, also after a battery change in the remote, i think, but not sure, i did this on a blazar i once owned... the owners manual said, that you had to be within 20 feet and press and hold down both buttons till it makes the arming sound.... Can i get some feedback cause im curious..thanks.

Key fob remote start issues


You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.
