You will need to get a new remote, first off.

Unfortunately the only foolproof way to do that is through a dealer parts department, giving them your VIN. Failing that, you can try matching up part numbers, if legible, on the back of your existing remote and buying online.

You will also need to have a jumper wire ready and familiarize yourself with the DLC3 connector under your dash..
Once you have a new remote, do the following procedure. Timing is critical, so read it thoroughly as you do not have time to look back at the steps once you start!

Get into vehicle and put key in ignition but do not turn it.

Insert a jumper wire into your DLC connector (under steering column, your 'computer port') between terminals 1 and 4

These are the terminals you need to connect:

Within ten seconds of connecting the jumper wire, do the following:
1- Turn key to ACCY for one second
2- Turn key to OFF for one second
3- Turn key to ACCY for one second
4- Turn key to OFF for one second
5- Turn key to ACCY for one second
6- Turn key to OFF for one second

The doors will lock and then unlock to confirm program mode.

Press any button on the new remote.
Within 10 seconds, press a button again, TWICE.

The doors will lock/unlock again to confirm registration.
If you have additional remotes, you need to program them now by repeating the last two steps again within one minute.
Each time you enter program mode, all previous codes will be erased so you must program all remotes at once.

To finish, cycle the key, remove it, close all doors.
Your remote is now programmed!

If you need clarification on anything, please ask. If I have been helpful please be sure to rate my assistance!

I have a thumping noise on my 2000 Volkswagen beetle when I drive it

Check to see if one of your tires is old and breaking apart. Look at the Dot info on tire to see when it was made. First two digits is for the week and last two is for the year. Any tire more than 6 years old is subject to dry rot and inability to sustain high speeds - they just fall apart when you are scooting down the road! Until you resolve this make sure you have a good working spare in car!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep your speed down until..........

I have a 2005 reg toyota verso D4D every time I try using the central locking key it does not work when I try to use the mannual key the alarm goes off I can drive the car but cannot get the alarm to go...


Thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have an Alarm remote battery problem. You need to change the remote's battery. The remote's battery gets a little bit of charge whenever you leave it for quite some time. A trip to your mechanic might have been long enough to give your remote's battery a little bit of charge that's probably why it works whenever you get to your mechanic's place. But after that, you've used the little bit of charge that the battery has then It will not work anymore after you get home. Try leaving the remote unused for at least an hour or two then try to use it. Im sure it will work for a bit. Just get the remote's battery changed.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

The remote only works some of the time. can the

it could be a weak battery or the remote itself. To change the battery you need to pry the remote apart with a screw driver where the two halves come together. Look carefully at the sloder joints inside the remote they sometimes come apart causing a poor/no connection between the battery contacts and the little circuit board inside the remote.

All Accessories will quit working while driving 2002 Chevy Z71

It sounds as if the main power lead could be loose powering the dash. There are several main power blocks, make sure your connections are clean and tight. I have seen the circuit board for the dash fail but not often. Hope this helps.

Remote not working on my 2003 Jaguar S..have replaced battery on both remotes...I have looked in manual to find appropriate fuse.. guess I am blind..which fuse is it?

You may have to have the remotes recoded at the dealer. My remotes to my Jag don't work either. But hey the parts falling off my Jag ARE of the finest British make. LOL I really love my Jag. Call the dealer and see if they can't recode the remotes for you.

92 integra randomly won't start, won't even turn over

I had the same problem in my 92 Integra. I bought a new relay from the dealership for like $60.00. What happens is if the car gets too hot, like on a long drive it will lock out the starter. This fixed the problem for me. Let me know if you need the part number and i will dig it out, i still have my old relay.

Grand Cherokee Ltd, '96 - serious electrics issue

Hello there. I am going to take a stab at this issue you have. First off make sure that the remotes have fresh batteries. You can take them to any autozone and have them checked to make sure they are working correctly as well. But start with new batteries in the remotes. As for the door locks working and not working might be a bigger pain in the bottom. My first option would be to have the ignition sensor tested. I would be will to bet it is bad. Its a little sensor that is supposed to detect when the ignition is on and the vehicle is put into drive to lock the doors. Its a built in answer to car jacking. But if the sensor is lose or malfuctioning then it can cause the system to go nuts. If that does not work then I am willing to bet you have a short somewhere in the vehicle security settings. I would try to find a way to bypass the chrysler sercurity system and see if that fixes your problems. I am willing to bet it will.

How remove drive line from 2000 gmc 1500 truck?

Take off the drive shaft?

PUT BLOCKS IN FRONT AND BEHIND THE FRONT WHEELS so the vehicle can NOT roll anywhere... into you, over you, into your kids, through the garage wall, down the driveway onto the neighbour's lawn.. etc.. these stupid things happen to people.. so start safe. (and work somewhere reasonably level)

Jack the truck up so the rear wheels are slightly off the ground, put stands under the axle on either side for safety.. put the vehicle in neutral.. climb underneath

and undo the drive shaft spider. There's four bolts.. two each side, that hold the bearing caps to the differential.

Once you have the bolts out and caps off, (in some vehicles they're little U shaped bolts) you should be able to just **** the drive shaft a little bit forward towards the engine or wiggle it a bit.. it should slide forward enough to release the rear spider. Try to keep the bearing caps on the spider.. should they fall apart or fall off you'll have needles all over the place (needle bearings). You can replace the spider if the caps are sloppy or the needles are really rusty. I usually just wrap them on with some electrical tape to keep them on until it's reassembled, and carefully remove them to inspect them before reassembly.

Don't, pull the front of the drive shaft out of the transmission. While it accidentally can happen, it makes a huge mess, as transmission fluid will flood out of the transmission. You can reinsert it if this happens, just make sure it's clean. It is free to move slide, and fall, and can also result in a nasty little bonk on the head, should you accidentally pull it towards the rear of the vehicle until it falls out.

Once you have that apart, you should be able to spin your blocked up rear wheels if the diff's good.. or not, if the diff's shot.

Was a vague question.. I hope I said something useful..
