Hi the problem you are having is going to be with the control on the radio, their is no way of fixing the control it will need replacing or the stereo will need replacing, but as for turning it off you have 2 options, the first you could try is look in the fuse box and locate the aux fuse or radio fuse and pull it out, how ever on some models the stereo has an in line fuse which is located on the permanent live wire on the back of the stereo so to get to this you need to pull the stereo out but to do that you need a special tool that pulls the stereo out, so for now have a good look in the fuse box and check for an aux fuse or stereo fuse.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

also try pressing the buttons on the stereo a bit harder or try holding them down for few seconds also try hitting the button fast so you shock it as this can sometimes get it working for a short while

My 98 kia sportage wont start

It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

1992 toyota celica key wont turn and alarm system going off

The steering lock may be binding the ignition lock cyl preventing the key from turning or the key may be worn out. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while wiggling and turning the ignition key. To get the alarm to turn off without starting the car try locking and unlocking the vehicle from the passenger side door. There is a micro switch on the drivers side door lock cyl that may be bad and preventing the alarm from dis arming. This is all providing it is a toyota factory alarm sys.

My switch wont turn and alarm keep going off so how can i turn the switch

You can possibly not have the correct key and the door lock caqn be frozen with ice. The lock it'self might not be frozen but the locking mechcaizem may be. Try different doors as all the door locks will reset the alarm even the hatch. Just unlock it twitce and all the doors should unlock and the alarm reset. A locksmith can open the door for you if you think you have a key problem and once oped the battery can be disconnected the doors clsed with the window down and the key in the on position and then connect the battery and the computer will think the car is already on so the alarm will not be on and then you can turn the car to run and start it and get in and go.

I had same problem. Driver door would lock/unlock with key in keyhole in door, but not with fob, and other doors would not lock/unlock. Even once inside none of the doors would lock/unlock with lock switch, or even by pulling handles. Mechanic (very trustworthy) explained I needed a new control module (cost me $600). Good Luck. $600 is better than having to roll down the windows so Grandma can Luke Duke it outta the car.

Key wont open door on Chevy Colorado, only remote entry works. Even duplicate key doesn't work. Battery fine.

Try spraying some wd40 into the lock loads of it and keep turning the key left to right might free off.

Or it could be a rod inside the door has come off so the lock wont move to unlock, the central locking has a motor to open the door that is not attached to the rod so it can work without the lock.

Take the door card/trim off and have a look at the rear of the lock, should have 1 rod for the handle, 1 for the lock mechanism and another for the inner handle. some are cables but most are rods

It might just have came off the back of the lock, they use very small plastic clips to hold the rod in place, when it gets cold the crack and fall off so the rod fall's out.

Hope this helps

96Nissan Sentra Drivers side door/trunk locks broken

my 97 had the same problem. if the key fits the lock and will turn the lock but the lock wont open the door then your problem lies in the linkage between the door lock cylinder and the locking mechanism.

if the key fits the lock and the lock wont turn at all, this is what happened to me, then your lock is seized. Ive actually seen this on alot of 95-99 sentras it seems to be some sort of design flaw. what I had to do was to replace the lock cylinder and locate a new key. the locks from a dealer are a little pricy so i went around to salvage yards, every nissan sentra from said year range door locks were all seized, I even tried the 200sx as its the same car but a 2 door, same problem. luckily i found out that the 94 nissan altimas have the same door locks so I dismantled the inside door panel of said altima and snagged both front door lock cylinders. i also got lucky as the key was still in the ignition, replaced both locks and got a key for about 20 bucks. depending on your problem you might need new lock cylinders

Power locks work inside but key wont turn outside

A rubber boot around the lock motor can disintegrate and get caught up in the motor gear or if the link age assembly to the motor gear has been fixed with epoxy glue ( allowing no free play) then these symptoms can develope which allows the automatic door locks to work but very stubborn almost impossible to open manually.
