Make sure the new battery is connected properly, and all the wiring is back the way it was.
Check the battery voltage to see if its at least 12.4 Volts.
If it's not, then have the battery charged.
AutoZone , Sears and others will check and charge the battery free. Hope this helps.

    New batterys don't have to be charged. You can test it yourself by turning on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim or off, then the battery or it's connections are weak. Hope you can try that.

This is something a good DIY mechanic can only fix by being there when it happens. There are too many variables to do online.

SOURCE: Key fob stopped working the door locks. I changed

the circuit boards on those factory remotes, sometime break where the battery is clipped in, check to make sure the solder is holding the clip properly and it is not loose, also they remote may need to be programmed to the vehcile with a scan tool, usually only found at GM, Also the rubber part of the remote on the inside where the pad touchs the circuit board, uses a small screwdriver and touch the exposed circuit, if the remote locks the doors, try putting in tiny peice of alumumn tape of the inside pad, the connectiveness of the rubber wears off. If not try above or dealer.

When the battery in the key stops working what can happen?


Sounds as if the van lost that code for the PATS(Passive Anti-Theft System) key. You will have to have it programmed again. Some well equipped key and lock shops may be able to do this, otherwise off to the dealer.

Noise like doors-power-locks activating when driving


One or more of your speakers might be blown. You might consider checking each one to rule it out then check your fuse box for blown fuses as well as the connections to your battery.

1999 Jetta GLS - Key buttons stopped working - no longer could lock/unlock doors remotely. Using key manually worked for a while. Now key can be inserted into driver door (only exterior door lock) but...


Have you replaced the battery lately? If so , you could have a bad battery in your key. It is a small microchip in some cares and will effect unlocking and starting the car if the battery is weak or dead.

Interior light / electric locks chattering with no key in switch


Yes, you are missing something. The days of removing the battery cable ended with Generators. An Alternator will self destruct if you do that. Be certain to remove it and get it bench tested. Usually kills diodes and often regulator.

the doors clicking sounds like a problem in the door lock circuit, often in the door jamb. If you inspect and find broken wires in the door jamb, do not repair there, you need to replace the entire length. All repairs fail quickly. The wired need to be new and flexible.

On the no start with new battery, be sure to test the neutral safety switch.

Autolocks clicking on 97 P/A ultra


It sounds like a bad ground. Something on the car is searching for a ground and finding one through the power lock relay. Not sure what it is but it shares a ground with that relay.
