How does the ignition interlock work on the mazda mpv 2003 ? I can't start the car without the remote control : Simply turning the key will not even crank, does nothing.


Often, you need to press the unlock button on the remote twice. First press unlocks the door and second press disables the immobiliser and allows the vehicle to start. The key alone will not start the vehicle.

Alternatively, when the key is in the ignition - press the remote unlock again.

The remote acts as an immobiliser device. The reason your car won't start on the key is probably because the system won't allow any key in the ignition - it is preventing theft of the vehicle. Once the unlock button on the remote is pressed the system then recognises that key is the legitimate one for the vehicle and the disables the immobiliser and allows you to start the car

How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?


Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

Prostart locks and unlocks but won't start truck


Two things, Some Chev's have a security key that will only start the car when the ignition finds the ID chip in the handle of the key, when some places install remote starters they take the ID chip from the key and glue or tape it to the ignition switch so the remote starter will start the car without the key in it. I have seen some of the glue and or tape give out and the little chip falls far enough away from the ignition switch that it cannot find it and thus will not start. this is why it will work with the key in the ignition, You will have to find a service tech that knows how to remove the chip from your key handle (the plastic you turn when the key is inserted) then place it where the ignition switch can read it correctly. The ID chip is about the size of a grain of rice an is located in a small compartment in the plastic handle of the ignition key it is well hidden but a tech that has worked with this can find it. You could do the same if you get a additional key made for your car and place the key in the steering column very close to the ignition switch, but the new key can cost you in the $50 to $80 range so a tech would be a cheaper choice.
The second thing it may be is a bad isolator relay used in the remote starter, this relay is used by some more expensive remote starters to bypass the security system of the car by other means than placing the ID chip on the ignition switch. This would also need a tech to figure it out. But it should not cost more than $90 to fix by the tech, (less any cost to replace the ID chip or relay).

Key fobe button for remote start doesn't always work, even with new batteries.


I had this problem. I read the manual and it states that if you remote start your car and then remote-stop the ignition twice, you must place the key in the ignition and start the vehicle once to reset it. I think it is to keep children (or anyone else) from playing with the key fob and playing the start-stop-start-stop-start-stop game! Hope this helped!

When i turn my key on my wife's 01 mercedes benz s500 there is no ignition light and it will not start.Everything else works just fine.The alarm,the locks and everything work ok.I have changed the car...


If your wife's key works fine and your key doesn't then there is a good possibility that your remote key is faulty. The alarm and locks may still work but those signals go to a different control module the when you try to start the car. If the ignition switch does not read the key then it will not allow you to start the car and sometimes not even turn the key in the ignition. Especially if there is any damage to the front part of the key where the red lens is at. Check and see if the infared signal is working on the remote key. To do this use a camera phone and go like your going to take a picture and point the key right at the lens of the camera phone. If it works you will see it on the screen. If it doesn't then you won't see anything when you push the button and hold it on the remote key. At the dealer they will probably ask for both keys and start by selling you a remote key.

MY PT Cruiser Functional transmitter and the one to be programmed both have no "PANIC" Button . How I programme the spare Fob


If you don't have the Panic button then sorry, you can't program yourself, the dealer will have to program it to the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module in the vehicle, using their DRB scan tool.

I have an o3 ford escape with an aftermarket autopage remote start system.when i try to use the remote start it flashes the parking lights and all the accesories fire up but will not ingauge the starter....


the issue is the securilock system I installed one in my 03. You need a spare coded key (one that starts the vehicle) and a Bulldog 791 kit. ths will store the spare key and tell the vehicle it is not being stolen. Its the only way unless you want to leave your key in the ignition. BTW, the Theft light is on when you engage the remote started w/o the key in the ignition, Been there.

Key Does not Work.


Ok, If it is the Factory Key, It should have the Plastic Finger grip at the Top. This Finger Grip has a Transponder Chip inside that Tells the Ignition that the Key is the Correct Key for this car, Go ahead and Start. These Transponders do Stop working Sometimes. If you will take the Key to the Dealer they can Reprogram the Key to work for you. But, It has to be the Factory key for this. If you have had a Key made, The key will not have the Chip inside it and will only work on the Doors. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
