SOURCE: key fob remote start issues

You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.

SOURCE: Car will not unlock.

To get inside the car .... Use the key in the lock cylinder, unlock the drivers door to get inside. You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob unless it or the keyless module was changed. There may be a blown fuse that supplies the keyless control module (check the owners manual for location). or wires that lead into the Drivers door may be damaged ... The keyless module is located inside the drivers door at the bottom behind the door panel ... do the unlock/lock and trunk release switches on the inside of the drivers door operate the locks and or trunk release? If so it is not the fuse ... and not the wires to it ... And it could be your BCM body control module, located in the dash board to right of your gas petal. Because the number entry keypad (code for that is on the inside of the right passenger trunk bracket arm) also doesn't work I assume it's not the key fobs themselves. Your 98 manual is correct for your car.

Car alarm goes off when unlocking door


You will needs to think of it this way. Once you set your alarm it is looking for the corresponding signal to disable itself. That comes from the fob. If you don't use the fob and just use the key, the alarm system is doing its job and alerting you since it has not received the disable command from the fob. Either lock the door with the button when you exit the car if you want to use the key or use the alarm fob. This will also happen if you use the car manufacturers fob to unlock the car if you have locked it with the alarm manufacturers fob.

Hope that helps - I have hidden all of my original car fobs to help alleviate this problem!

I cannot lock or unlock my car with my key fob


Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.

Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.

I changed my battery in my 2005 cadillac sts, and now it is showing that the starter is locked. fob locks and unlocks the car, but i can't get car to start. what do i do?


you can try this, with the battery connected lock the car using the key fob, make sure no keys are in the ignition. Disconnect the battery again and let it sit for 30 min or so, reconnect the battery and using the key fob unlock the car, it should start, if not repeat the procedure and insert the key into the door lock to unlock the car, both of these solutions should reset the security system. Good luck.

The dash board says key fob battery 1 is low ... what is it ? what should I do?


The push button devise you use to lock and unlock the doors is your Key fob. It has battery's to make it work, they are inside the fob. Think of it as a TV remote, they use battery's to send the signal to the Tv. Same for your Key Fob uses battery's to send a signal to the car to lock / unlock the doors.

Battery in key fob went dead need to reset keyfob audi tt 2000


hi you can do this but you will have to have a key that does not have a remote/fob on it ( basically just go get one cut cheaply ) then to reprogram keys/key fob's first using the key without fob, turn ignition on ( do not turn over, just to position 2) then lock drivers door with other key ( do not use fob, just the key itself with fob now complete the following within 30 seconds within 5 seconds( of locking the car) press the unlock button on the first key once ( this programs that key as key memory1) the indicators should flash once to indicate signal received wait 5 seconds then press unlock on key fob vehicle should then unlock meaning key fob has been programmed and programming ended open door turn ignition off , and that's it, it should work if you have more than 1 key with fob, do the same as above but instead of pressing unlock once, you do it twice, if third key 3 x if fourth key 4 x etc etc,

When we use our key fob to lock the doors, i know we must use the key fob to unlock the doors to avoid the alarm from going off. Recently I parked in a parking garage at an airport (left key fob at home)...


You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.
