Take the battery out of the bad remote, set it in a up of rice for a while and pray. Go buy a new remote and have it programmed where you buy it. If you're lucky, the remote will dry out and work in a few days. If it still acts up, the only way it can be fixed is with a new one. Destroy it in your favorite manner.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing out.

I had the same problem with my 2000 Windstar. It ended up being a brake fluid leak around a sensor on the master cylinder. The sensor is a known issue and has been redesigned. The brake fluid dripped onto some elctrical connections causing fuses to blow. The sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pressed. On some vehicles it was known to cause fires and Ford had to provide a recall. At the time my Windstar was not covered in the recall but it may be now.

If that doesn't work, it sounds like a trip to the dealer.

well go to a dealership that handles the volkswagens,You will have to see if they will service you because there is a slight chance that this is a problem with other users so they might do it for free.plus that is a place where you can definitley get a new remote or battery.

Have a pontiac montana, but lately when I press ths remote start button, the alarm goes off. Door locks work fine.


If its an aftermaket installation, do yourself a favor and have it removed. I have seen them disable a vehicle where they won't start. Sound like the controller is malfunctioning.

Alarm wont let me start the car


you need the remote control of the alarm to turn the alarm off.

you may need to change the battery of the remote in case it would no longer control the alarm or if you have a valet switch to turn off the alarm, then use it.

the immobilizer is working that is why you can not start the car.
