My electronic key won't start my car


If your check engine light is on or you have low oil pressure, the ecu will not let the vehicle remote start. All of the doors must be locked, and the hood cannot be open. Are all of your doors locking remotely before you try to remote start the vehicle?

How to repair your vehicle's worn out remote control key


When I saw a friend's worn out remote car key, I knew that other people must have the same problems, and that somebody must sell replacement parts for repairing the case (fob).
The flexible rubber side of her key was torn and one of the button inserts had fallen out making it difficult to unlock her car doors. Water could get into the electronics and ruin it.
I found the necessary parts kit on Amazon for $3.99, shipping included from China. After repairing the first of her keys without any problems, I tried to order another for her spare key through Amazon, but it was no longer available. I found it on eBay for $1.75, shipping included from Hong Kong. It took the first key 15 days to arrive. I just order the second kit.
To find a replacement for your key fob, copy and paste the link that follows, into your browser, enter your vehicle info, and keep scrolling until you find the right one at the right price.

This is the worn out remote key for a Toyota RAV4.

2649-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-2.jpg
This is the refurbished key after replacing the fob (case), using only the electronic module from the original. The key blank is molded into the fob, just like the original. All that remains is getting the key cut. All parts fit perfectly, and in my opinion, the new fob is better designed than the original.



26410-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-12.jpg
First pop the case open by twisting a screwdriver in the slot on the side, just like you do when changing the battery.

2642-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-17.jpg
The new fob has plastic buttons that fit into compartments in a hard plastic case instead of the flexible rubber buttons that wore out. The rubber gasket (upper center in the picture) holds the buttons in place and provides waterproofing in the completed assembly.

2643-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-23.jpg
Remove the electronics component from the old key.

2644-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-30.jpg
That's the switch side of the electronics component showing in this picture.

2645-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-38.jpg
Insert the new buttons in the holes in the face of the new fob. This was a three function remote that didn't include the trunk release, so that was just an extra part in this case.

2646-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-47.jpg
Insert the rubber gasket over the assembled button/fob face.

2647-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-57.jpg
Insert the electronics component into the new fob face.

2649-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-68.jpg
Snap the front and back together and test the functions on your vehicle to make sure everything is working properly. Have the new blank cut at your favorite store ($2.00 charge for this key at a locksmith shop nearby. Any place that cuts keys could have done it.)

My remote transponder key starts the car but does not open the door or lock it remotely even with a new battery.


Remote starts are not a factory option. None do it. Dealers will. But it is all aftermarket. I have taken out hundreds of them. I refuse to install them.

How I can programing my contro of mercedes benz LM 320 OF 2002


if original, try flicking the key 5 times and then hold lock and open at the same time, assuming the key starts the car and is original key and remote, you will see the locks actuate if the battery is also good or new, usually they do not loose the fob memmory. try a new battery to the remote first.

2006 jeep liberty wrong key was inserted now won't start but turns over any ideas on how to reprogram key for my car?


NOOOOOO! Very easy to solve!!!!!
1.) Lock the car with the original key + remote control.
2.) open the car with the original remote control.
3.) Sit into the car, close ALL doors and windows.
4. Put in the ORIGINAL keys into the ignition and turn it right, until the dasboard lights go on.
5. Wait 10-15 seconds.
6. Take out the keys.
7. Leave the car and lock it with the original remote control.
8. Wait a minute or so.
9. open the car w. the original remote control.
10. Start your car and viola! Will start like a charm.
At least it happened to me with my 2006 cherokee.

IF NOT there is another method, one of these 2 will work!

Try Inserting the correct key in the ignition at least 3 times. Don't turn the key, just insert it-let it sit for 5 seconds and then remove-do this 3-5 times, then insert the key and attempt to start again

Hope it helps, BTW, the anti-theft immobilizer was working.

Below a schematic drawing how the anti-theft immobilizer works, just to give more insight.

Can not open the door with remote key and the key


If the battery is dead or so weak it won't be able to run the circuit inside the key. When the key is plugged in the start, it won't emit the signal to be recognized, the engine will not start.
1- There are 2 lithium batteries in the remote key to be replaced.
2- Is it possible that you pick up the remote key from another Mercedes car in the house since they are all look like.
3- Since you can open the door manually it means the key is correct. However, kids in the house and swap keys from FOB from its original ones.
4- After replacing battery then it's still not working, before order a new FOB, I advise you to read this link, it may help you save a couple hundred dollars

Re-programming SAAB 9-3 remote from anoter car.


try and find a saab authorized dealership, not a gm'er who may or may not know. If you have a remote, then they should be able to 'reprogram' ALL keysets at one time to the same signature/frequency that your car is set to.
