    Actualy the black ring snaps in and requires some force to pull it out. Perhaps prying up on it with a knife will get it started. just dont slip be careful

Noticed bateries plus carries them and they would be able to help with that.
However they appear to use abig six volt alkaline battery. Non chargeable.
Have owned many similar lights, and the lens keeper usuall unskrews off though it may be under a rubber ring that snaps on.
They claim it is water proof so that may raise the difficulty level but still the same principle; a plastic box of baterry with a lamp and lens held in and sealed withe a keeper or bezel ring.

1999 kia sportage battery and emergency brake come on when i start the car


Usually the battery warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. On some models the battery and brake lights are wired together.
Check your owners manual for details.

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Car wont start


Check the fuel. Don't rely on your gauge, and if in doubt add some fuel just to make sure there is enough to start the car. Try to start the car and if it still doesn't start you know that fuel isn't the problem.

Make sure your car is in Park and the emergency brake is set.

Look closely at your dash board when you attempt to start the car. If your lighted panels don't come on or are very dim then it is likely that you are dealing with a dead battery. Either use a battery tester or simply hook the battery up to a charger or use jumper cables to hook up to another car battery in order to charge the battery enough to start the car. After you charge the battery if your car still won't start you may be dealing with a bad starter.
Call a mechanic to find out if there are any other possibilities before you purchase and replace the starter.

Were does it go? Also battery died can i just jump it or do i need to charge it?


Where does what go?

You need to know how old the battery is,first

Then you need to test the battery, before you
attempt to jump or charge it

I don't know why you expect someone on the
internet to know all about the battery history
& then tell you to change it.

If you said it went 8 years,then that would be
a good reason to install a new one.

2003 toyota tundra put new battery in but still dead by next morning


Yes I went nuts with the dead battery problem till I found TSB_EL015-03. Seems the frist half of the production year 2003 Tundra has a problem with the tow package relay being left energized if you leave the lights in the daytime running position so that they turn off by opening the door, it will run the battery down.
Toyota knows this, won't do a recall, but there is a kit you can get that is listed in the Technical Service Bulletin EL015-3. When it tell you to use a special tool to remove a pin from the large connector (red) don't bother, you will never get it out. Just cut the red wire and use a crimp tool to splice it to the kit's wire. There is no room to work it, just cut it and splice it.

if your battery maintainer(charger)has the capability to charge from a higher charge to lower charge as the battery gets charged up and shut off when proper voltage is attained then you can leave the battery in the car as every time you disconnect it you have to reset everything in the car.some now can detect when to turn off and turn on as the car sits and voltage drops to low.don`t know which ones do and don`t someone may be able to answer that if they know about them.

Key to the car does not work even after changing battery in the key. Also the battery in the car is ok only has been replaced in the last few months. Does anyone know what my options are. Also do not have...


Chip in the key may lost contact with your module that receives info. Dealership will probably have to reprogram the key with your vehicle. Don't take long, but they charge $75+ to do the reprogram. We have a guy here that does this work and he does this for Ford, and all other major dealers. He charges $15 for spare cut key w/chip and dealer (him) charges $45 per key.
