If the key isnt ruined by the moisture, you may be able to have the dealer reprogram it. you'll need to dissasemble the key and allow it to dry. (remove the battery as well). You can speed this process by purchasing some electric contact cleaner from your local auto parts store.

Car key not recognized


I have change several new keys which had the magnetic chips in them which had to be sync to the car, . When you have a new key made you have to sync it to the car/ magnetic chip or fob key. Link which might help sync problems with fob keys, my vehicles were GM with just the magnetic chip key and not nearly as complicated.

My key won't unlock the door on kia sedona ex


If the key turns but does not unlock the door then it is a linkage problem between the lock tumbler and door lock mechanism. If the key does not turn at all, then it will most likely be a problem with the mechanism. Sadly both of these will require removal of the door panel. If you dont feel comfortable with this then take to a reputable shop

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

The alarm won't stop going off on Acura 2005, what can stop it?


I had a similar problem and the solution was actually very simple. I opened the car manually (with the key not remote control), then locked it manually with the button on the side of the driver's door. I think that reset the alarm and all was good!

I have a 2005 JGC 5.7 hemi and sometimes remotes wont work only when you want to unlock it.If you use the key to open door alarm sounds. what could be the problem?


Have you tried a new battery in the remote, or do you have a second remote you can test. Either your remote is worn out or the battery is dead.
Once you lock the car with your remote it will active the alarm and if you use your key it won't deactive the alarm only your remote will, on some cars putting the key in the ignition will deactive it.
If you can deactive your alarm with your remote and can just manualy lock and unlock your doors and that should prevent your alarm from going off until you get a new remote or battery.

2005 S40 wont start. Message says key error?


Do you have the remote, i.e. The deadlock system is activated and deactivated using the remote control key fob, which allows the driver to open the car as they approach. It seems you have activated the steering lock which is for preventing thieves to make a getaway. Use the remote to deactivate it and then try starting the car.......sodeep
P.S. The security system is a built-in feature of this model

Can not start engine


of course you can not start your engine because you have an immobilizer. you have to replaced the battery of the remote in order to disable the alarm for the car to run. or sometimes these remotes would have another unit as a spare key. use it if it is still working.

tnx 4 using fixya.
