Found this wiring diagram for lift gate, if that is what we're talking about? Not only check the fuses, check fuse circuit for voltage. Use a testlite.

Car battery went dead and now my keyless remote won't work


Try pressing and holding the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for 15 seconds and see if the remote will 'resynchronize' with the vehicle.

My 2006 volvo s40 won't start and the key (remote) does not work. Had to use regular key to open the door. alarm still on and car won't start.


I had the same problem when my battery went flat and tried to use jumper cables connected to another vehicles battery. I called Volvo and they said I need to disconnect the battery terminal to reset the computer. After re-conecting it the remote control worked again and I was able to jump start the car. Maybe your car's computer went into a similar state.

Keyless remote will not unlock doors. Door was unlocked with key. Car will not start and the key will not release from ignition switch. Is this the anti-theft and haw do I reset it?


Check the car battery there is a battery in the remote as well but its to new to need to be replaced and so is the battery in the car It sounds most likely like there is a bad connection on one of the battery terminals on the cars battery if the bat is dead in the car the remote won;t work and if the bat is dead in the remote it won;t work but the car will hope this helps

I have an 08 Jeep Liberty that has a remote starter on the key. I tried to unlock the car with the remote, however, that didn't work, so I unlocked the car with the key. The alarm went off, I tried pushing...


Sounds like you have a key without the chip in it. Replacement keys without the chip will only unlock the doors and will activate the theft alarm when you start the vehicle.

YOU MUST fix your REMOTE. REPLACE BATTERY OR BUY A NEW ONE! THE KEY IS A LASER TYPE KEY MADE SOLELY FOR YOUR VEHICLE. SORRY BUT THE KEY IF EXCLUSIVE AND EXPENSIVE!
