Your computer may be bad or you will have to reprogram the keys.

  1. Get in your car and put the key in the ignition. Make sure all of the doors and the trunk are closed.
  2. Step 2 Turn your key one click to the right to begin the programming sequence.
  3. Step 3 Turn your key one more click to the right and then back once to the left. Repeat this process five times in quick succession within ten seconds.
  4. Step 4 Press the lock key on your keyless remote within five seconds of completing your fifth rotation with your Volvo2007 disel V6 sprinter wagon key not 'recognised'  - 2.gif key.
  5. Step 5 Turn the ignition off on your Volvo, and press any key on your keyless remote to test the programming.

If I buy a new central locking key for my sprinter can I programme it myself ?


Def not,

Take it to a key cutter with appropriate software to mate it to your spare key

As a second note keep your key bunch light on 2008 sprinter or you'll break the esr ring

Electronic sensor ring - big bucks to fix and lots of downtime. This happened to me.

Esr ring if it goes will leave electronic solenoid in steering lock engaged and once you've had the sprinter put on the back of a truck and taken to main dealer they replace key box and then everything has to be re- paired with ecu

Big big bucks.

But a great van :-)

Starter wont engage, jumped starter with key on but dies immediately. repaced ignition switch and starter relay. even tried 2 extra spare keys. security light is flashing


This is a pretty common problem on GM vehicles. This is what is happening. Your vehicle has switched itself into ANTITHEFT mode. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle.

I have a 2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500. Battery exploded when I turned the ignition on. New Battery got installed but when I turned on the radio a signal appeared CODE. What does this mean?


any time the battery is removed without a memory saver the radio gets locked-this is for security purposes-if you bought the vehicle brand new there should be a radio code card in with your owners manual-if not you will have to contact a dodge dealer to get the new radio code or to get it reset-if you have to go to dodge for the code i recommend writing it down in case it happens again

My 1998 ford expedition won t start and the theft


the light blinks when the system is armed. Normal.

Your key has to be able to communicate with the receiver in the ignition area. Does your other key work ok?

Anti-Theft The passive anti-theft system (PATS) uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a driveaway theft. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
  • During each vehicle start sequence, the ignition key identification code is requested by the PATS module.
  • If the key's ID code has been programmed into the system, the vehicle powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) is allowed to operate; this allows the vehicle to start.
  • If the key's ID code is not programmed into the PATS module, or if no encoded key is detected, then the vehicle PCM is disabled.
The PATS module, located under the driver side instrument panel, communicates the state of the security system to the PCM via the module communications network. The PCM, based on the communications from the PATS module, will determine if the vehicle's engine will be enabled to start. If the PCM prevents the vehicle from starting because of PATS, the PCM will store a DTC in memory.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The anti-theft vehicle protection system utilizes the THEFT indicator, located in the instrument cluster (10849), when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN/START position. The indicator provides system prove out and operating status to the customer or technician.
Each PATS ignition key holds electronics that give each key a unique ID code.
The PATS will activate the indicator signal when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN/START position. The THEFT indicator will turn ON for two seconds, then turn OFF.
If the THEFT indicator flashes for one minute or more, this indicates that there was no key code received.
When the vehicle ignition switch is placed in either RUN or START, the PATS module requests the ignition key ID code. The PATS module requests the ignition key ID code by supplying power, ground, and the carrier signal to the transceiver to energize the ignition key. After the energize period, the key transmits its ID code to the transceiver module, which sends it to the PATS module.
The PATS module then compares the received KEY ID code to those stored in memory (16 maximum). If the ID matches, the PATS module sends an enable signal to the PCM over the module communication network.
The passive vehicle protection system utilizes the engine management capabilities of the PCM to enable or disable the vehicle engine. The module communication network is used to send and receive messages to and from the PCM.
Within one second after engine start, the PCM must receive an enable signal from the PATS module through the module communication network or the engine is disabled before the vehicle can be moved.
If the PATS module recognizes a stored ignition key code but there is a module communication network concern preventing the PCM from recognizing the start enable signal from the PATS module, the vehicle engine will be disabled. If this happens, the PATS module will flash the THEFT indicator for one minute, then flash diagnostic trouble code 16 ten times to indicate there is a problem with the module communication network circuits or the PCM is not responding properly.
The passive vehicle protection system will disable the vehicle from starting if there is a:
  • Damaged encoded key.
  • Unprogrammed key.
  • Non-encoded key (key has no electronics).
  • Wiring concern.
  • Transceiver concern.
  • Control module concern.
  • Module communications network concern.
