Is it an aftermarket alarm/starting system? If so it may be burnt out. Without the right bosch relays to hold the locks down for 3 seconds the sytem will burn out trying to lock and unlock due to the air pump sytem. They might have also messed with the stock alarm system if you have it on your model which would compound the problem. If the car starts at all I would look at replacing the coil and coil wires as they are some of the biggest contributors to poorly running MB's. Then I would check the fuel pressure, maybe replace the fuel filter and check valve as they can keep fuel pressure low. After that might be a bad ignition switch which I doubt but anything is possible. If you also have an aftermarket radio it is tied into the stock alarm and that may not help your issues either. Hope I have given you a good place to start.

2008 Altima with push button start. Why won't the fob unlock doors?


Insert key into and remove it from ignition more than six times in 10 seconds. When the hazards lights will flash twice insert key into ignition and turn to ACC position.
Then push any button on key fob once, the hazard lights will flash twice. Then open drivers door to END.
Should be all working again.

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.

I can't start my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with either key fob. Once I got a "Service Security Key" message. Another time I got the "Key not programmed - Damaged key" message. What...


Hi Hal,

Did you ever get this resolved? Looks like you didn't get any feedback here! I'm having the same issue sporadically. I turn the key and nothing. Usually if I keep trying it will eventually start cranking and start. Usually within 10 - 15 tries. happened last night. After it started, I got the "Service Security Key" message. I looked in the manual and it does say what that means. Don't know if it is programming (probably not because the fob works 97% of teh time) or maybe just a dying battery. If you can share anything you might have founf out I'd appreciate it! thanks!

Programming a keyless entry remote


Key Fob Auto Learn
This procedure will first erase all known key fobs. The procedure will then program a single or multiple key fobs. Method 3 is a series of three 10-minute key cycles, for a total of 30 minutes. This procedure requires that you have a replacement key fob and the vehicle mechanical key.

Important: All previously programmed key fobs will be erased upon completion of the 30-minute programming procedure. The order in which the key fobs are programmed will determine its numbering position within the RCDLR memory. The first key fob programmed will be key fob #1, and the second key fob programmed will be key fob #2. The number stamped on the key fob case is for reference only: #2 can be programmed as #1.
Do not place any known good key fobs in the vicinity of the vehicle when programming. 

The vehicle must be OFF. 
Place the replacement key fob in the console pocket with the buttons facing forward. 
Insert the vehicle key in the driver door lock cylinder located in the driver door handle and cycle the key 5 times within 5 seconds. 

The DIC will display a message: OFF/ACC TO LEARN. 
Press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button. 
The DIC will display a message: WAIT 10 MINUTES, then it will count down from 10 to 0, one minute at a time. 
When the counter reaches 0, DIC will display OFF/ACC TO LEARN. 
Repeat steps 5-7 two more times, for a total of 30 minutes. 
The DIC will display a message: OFF/ACC TO LEARN. 
Press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button. 
A beep will occur and the DIC will display: READY FOR FOB 1. At this time all previously known key fobs have been erased. When fob 1 is programmed a beep will be heard and the DIC will display a message: READY FOR FOB 2. 
Additional key fobs can be programmed by taking fob 1 out of the pocket and inserting fob 2. If desired, up to 4 fobs can be programmed. Once 4 fobs have been learned, the DIC will display a message: MAX FOBS LEARNED, and automatically exit the program mode. 
If learning less than 4 key fobs, press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button to exit the program mode. 
Operate the active portion of each key fob in order to finalize the programming sequence and verify correct system operation. 

Good luck and hope this help's keep me posted, there are 3 other methods and the 5th method is a tech 2 scan tool that the dealer uses but this should work on your year of cadillac.
