It could be the interlock system with the shifter is malfunctioning. Jiggle the shifter while you try to turn and remove the key to see if that releases it. If so, your shifter interlock switch is probably misaligned or sticking. Try spraying some WD-40 into the shifter area under the console. There is a rubber plug about one-inch square on the bottom side of the steering column. If you pull this out and push your index finger into the opening, you'll find a little button that you push. This will release the mechanism so you can turn the key the rest of the way and remove it. Check to see if your battery is dead, put it on a recharger overnight to bring it back to life. If it won't hold a charge then replace it with another one

I have bmw 120d and parked last night this morning the remote control key dead.i tried the manual key alarm went off but put the starter key in and still nothing and cant move gear .everyrthing dead..


Hi Fred
this looks like as you set your alarm ( with key as normal on lock) the immobiliser is in and you will not be able to start your car in the state if you can send me some more information, like year and cubic capacity i will find out if you can reset your key fob yourself or it will need to go to a dealer to be reset.

Opening car with key sets off alarm.


Open up your key and dry it first of all.
Then retry.

Or you could try using your spare set of keys.

Last night the alarm went off locking the keys in the car. We had to use a hanger to get the keys out and now the alarm will not shut off?


The reason your alarm system is going off is because you used a coat hanger to open the door. This only proves that the system WORKS! It simply thinks that you are trying to steal the car - so it is screaming about it to tell on you!

To get the alarm to turn off, close and lock all of the doors (don't forget the keys :) ) Then use the KEY to open the driver's door. This should disarm the system and the security light will stop flashing and the horn and headlams should turn off and everything should be back to normal.

My alarm wont turn off. my car wont start. its a 2004 tiburon.


With alarm activated your ignition is disabled.Find the combination to disable it.With GM's you hold opposing buttons on the fob till it beeps twice. The dealer should help for no charge.
