Car will not start


What you say is very possible . The security (immobiliser) needs a constant transmission of signal to keep the system operational and if the battery in the key is nearly flat or loose then this flow of signal is intermittent and the immobiliser will eventually take control and shut down . Fit a new battery in the key and have it reprogrammed to the car.

Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...


My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

Car alarm went off while unlocking the door, now


you need to reset alarm/immobiliser.lock car with remote, hold button down for 30 secs,then press/hold down unlock button,should reset.another way is with key in ignition/turned on, press alarm button down and hold for 30 secs.this resets immobiliser.toyota
systems vary..depending on market.
