Probably would be a idea to remove the carpet cover that hides the cable that releases the boot. if you lay the rear seats down you can look into the boot from the rear seats of the car. the problem may be in the cable that normally dosent get used until there is a issue with the remote on the key. before going to the test run via the rear seats and having some one shut the boot while watching its operation. check where the cable attaches to the latch and get some one to operate the manual cable that is located in the glove box . check that it has full travel and isn't broken or something hasn't fallen into its way of travel. lubricate with lithum grease the moving parts of the mechanism. manually operate the latch by hand then try to shut the boot. but with the panel off and the mechanism exposed some one using the cable in the glove box and you viewing its operation it should become clearer what the issue is

SOURCE: Reset remote central locking key fob for 2003 Kia Sportage

Should be able to take it apart and take the battery out for 15-30 seconds or longer. Then put it back in. While your at it, you might as well change the battery but doing this will reset it.

SOURCE: Trunk not releasing on 2003 E320.

The trunk lock actuator is probably in valet mode. Remove the mechanical key on the side of your smart key and turn the trunk tumbler(ibeleive to the left). and put it in normal mode and it sh0uld start working. Your owner's manual will tell you about this operation. hope i have been helpful

SOURCE: 2003 impala leaks from under glove box

If you want to know the where the water is coming from, water is entering from the passenger side front cowl. ( the vent below the windshield that sucks the air in for your a/c and heat) there is a recall where chevy installs a plate under the cowl and diverts water out. There is your answer.

SOURCE: hi,i can't open the trunk of my lexus es300,it

Hi, W/D here.
I'm not really familiar with your car, but I thought that I should offer this up as a Good Samaritan....
If your rear seat(s) will flip down, do so and open the trunk from the inside. Then determine why the over ride switch isn't working. The trunk button should be worked manually when you get the trunk open. Lubricate the lock and locking mechanisms with graphite, and not oil. You can get graphite at Lowe's, H/Depot or similar, in the lock dept. You can also get it at craft supply stores (Hobby Lobby). They sell it there for the Cub Scouts "Pinewood Derby" race cars.
Hope that this helped a little, --W/D--

SOURCE: I have a 2003 hyundai sonata and i dont have the

The 2003 Sonata is equipped with a 'starter KILL' burglar alarm system with disables the starting system (using a N/C 'contacts' configuration instead of a N/O contacts configuration). N/C=Normally closed, and N/O=Normally open contacts. When the alarm goes off with a MY Sonata, the only way to DISARM it is with the key fob (remote) originally programmed for it (unless you purchase a new remote & have it programmed for the vehicle at an authorized Hyundai Service Department). NOTE: So long as the keyless entry & burglar alarm system is functioning/operating normally, the alarm will keep going off and the STARTER KILL function will still prevent you from starting the vehicle. One option is left without purchasing a new remote and having it programmed.
1. When the alarm goes off, get into the vehicle and insert the ignition key into the ignition.
2. Turn the key to the 'RUN' position (NOT the ACC position) and wait for the alarm to STOP (usually about 3 to 5 minutes).
3. The engine should then start using the ignition key.

If this procedure doesn't work, the problem will need further diagnosis by a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician.

Hope this helps

Keyless entry stopped working for both sets of remotes...what could this be and how do I diagnose and fix the problem for my 2003 Jaguar X-type 2.5 AWD.


Get the batteries replaced in the remotes. AutoZones ussually have RF meters to check the remotes for you but the cause most of the time is the battery. Their life span ussually does not pass 5 years. Good luck

How do i program 2003 dodge carvan key fob


ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system.
If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work.
You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first
remote for you.

Click here to find an Automotive Locksmith in your area to program this remote.

1. Press LOCK button 5 times at 2 second intervals to resynchronize remote.
2. Insert key into the ignition switch. Turn ignition to the RUN position (as far as you can
go without cranking engine). Wait for ignition chimes to stop.

3. Using the working remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote for 4 to 10
seconds.

4. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK button and then
press the PANIC button ( on the programmed remote ) for 1 second and release both
buttons. A chime will sound to indicate that the remote programming mode has been
entered ( allow 3 seconds for chime to sound ).

5. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously then press and release just the UNLOCK button on the same remote.
A chime will sound indicating the remote has been programmed. Press and release
the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously and then press the UNLOCK button on
each new remote you wish to program at this time. A chime will sound afer each
additional remote is programmed.

6. Turn the ignition OFF and remove key.
7. Test Remotes.

My boot won't lock on my jaguar x type 2003


Hi
Try some wd-40 spray this all around the boot lock and on the underside of the bootlid onto the mechanism, sometimes they stick and just need lubeing up. dont be shy with the wd-40 spray all over and into the lock. then try lock and unlock with the key and with the remote fob keep repeating until it free's off. this most often works and wont cost you anything so worth a go.

It's very common in cold weather, Hope this helps

Are you sure it has a remote release for the fuel door? I think that might be optional on the Chrysler 300. Try pushing down on the fuel door and then release it to see if it pops open.
