Hi, your going to keep having problems until you get your key fob replaced, inside the key fob is a transponder that your car picks up and it then allows the car to start but if this is playing up it could leave you stuck some where and you wont be able to start your car.

the only place you can get one of these is your main dealers you could try your local garage but they usually get them off the main dealers then charge a bit extra on top for getting it fro you.

you will need to take the fob with you and owners documents to prove you own the car they will then test your fob to see if it can be repaired or if they will replace it for you.

thats the only chance you have of of solving your problem, if you leave it it will only get worse and you could end up stuck and have to get your car towed costing you more money.

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

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

Won't start twice in a row. Starts/stalls.

Have the fuel system pressure checked especially after you start and stop the engine. If the system loses pressure immediately, you have a problem with loss of residual pressure caused by a check valve or equivalent.

Car is "dead" but battery/alternator/starter are all in working order. Hornet is causing this.

Sounds more like a faulty battery terminal to me from your description ,try cleaning and make sure its tight then smear with petroleum grease.Clean terminal with a kettle of hot water first

We're trying to start the car and the alarm goes off instead. Mechanic a couple weeks ago said that the battery was too low. Problem now is how to get the alarm to stop so that we can boost the car and...

Remove the battery, charge it up, refit it, lock then unlock the car either by using the remote fob or key in drivers door, car should then be fine.

Locks wont stop

hi again kids
i actually resolved this problem the long and silly way round??? because my alarm and immob are linked (separates but connectable) i believed that alarm unit was ok as still functioning, so marked and snipped immob wiring. wrong wrong wrong. i re joined each wire one by one to see if any thing changed with fault. it didnt have any effect, so back to wiring on alarm module, and after removing security screws, i emptied the water that had seeped into alarm wiring after washing car the week before, and a good hour drying out on raditor and it now works like a dream again, but i still have the problem of doors not locking automatically when alarm armed, though to be honest this fault started before the one i wrote to you about?
in essence im a big baffoon and have resealed alarm wire entry point as silicone had gone south a long time ago, allowing water to enter.
thanks anyway
