Hello, please can someone help me. I have a W210 (E200) year 2000. The problem is that my car refuses to lock/unlock with fob. Please note, there is nothing wrong with fob, new batteries and both radio...


probably the FOB, just because other functions work does not mean that the lock/unlock will work. This is the most used function and the one that goes first.

Range rover p38 problems


I have the same problem sometimes
1 Check the condition of your battery, if old, it will not give full power required to communicate with the security system.
2 If you don't have the EKA of your RR, try this next time you get caught, put key in the drivers door look, press unlock button on key fob and at the same time turn to unlock, if all locks unlock then the engine should not be immobilized - Good luck

I have a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. The remote locks the doors but sometimes it won't unlock the doors. I have to go to the passenger side, press lock on the remote, then press unlock (I can hear the 'clicks'...


Possible issue with the remote controller unit - main board or sub assemblies. The intermittent behavior seems to indicate that the board is erratic to detect at the same time the individual locks work at times.
So make sure all the connectors to the door and to the main board controller are tight. You can remove the main unit and check for any loose connections or clogging, specially water in all the door units or in main unit. If so dry and test.
Otherwise the main unit is a suspect.

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

Press lock button Fig. 1 [2] briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button [1] depressed. Release unlock button Fig. 1 [1]. Some models: LED Fig. 1 [3] flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Some models: Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously

To change batteries remove panel back of key then screws on plastic bar

Random problem, Cant unlock the car, cant unlock trunk, key probl


Sounds like a ground wire problem (black one) check Both connectors for corrosion. Trace black wire back to chassis remove,clean and reconnect.
The computer module might be bad as well. My friends BMW would lock all doors and close windows when he got out, And not let him back in!! This happend when the car was new!!!

I have a '98 Ford F 150 and the power door locks will lock but will not unlock. Do you have a wiring diagram that will help me troubleshoot the problem or is this a common problem with Ford that someone...


ck if either pass or driver switches will work. the lock actuators are common to be bad, but, if they lock but wont unlock more likely a switch problem.

Ok i have a question. I have a 05' Cobalt LS and sometimes its like the door locks get jammed or something. Sometimes the unlock button wont fully unlock it the unlock thing will pop up but door wont open!...


sounds like you need to replaced the latch in the door. or like my 06 cobalt lt the door was bouncing and not closing all the way, or not opening. they cleaned my latch and i havent had a problem since, but that latch in the door could be your problem.
