How do I fix the keyless entry system in my car

Well... Javaid Lotia,

Lets start with happy (more inexpensive) thoughts first...

Security TYPICALLY requires that you have an ignition key
or a properly equipped and trained locksmith has direct access
to your car to INTRODUCE an "NEW " fob to your vehicle.

This should be in the OWNERS MANUAL... for whatever reason MOPAR no longer cares!!

I couldn't locate a free ('94) one to save my life.

get into car... (seriously)
put key in ignition turn to on/off (to get feel)
press unlock...
Open door (leave open)
Press lock
Operate ignition from off to "on" (leave on)
Press transmitter lock button & hold for 20 seconds
Observe wink from security light overhead console (?)
Turn off ignition inside 20 seconds...

Confirm function w/lock/unlock of the "programmed" FOB.

Repeat that process for you old fob
(after getting a new 2032 battery)...

Press will work for up to 4 FOBs.

Ignition key wont come out

Hi, we had the same thing happen, for us the ignition barell had "collapsed" internally holding the key in place - you might be able release the key by hitting the underside of the steering column while trying to extract the key - however it sounds like a replacement will be needed, due to the age of the car you should be able to source one from a car wreckers cheaply, make sure you get the keys with the new barrell.

Using keyless ford focus can't turn ignition after clutch is pressed

Sounds like an interlock solenoid is out of adjustment. Pushing the clutch is suppose to allow a solenoid to hit a striker and send an electric signal to release the ignition switch. Just to be careful with the car rolling if the clutch is depressed.

Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is

Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

My 2009 keyless entry will not start?

Nissan cars with keyless entry will display key on dashboard display if battery of key runs out. Normally it can be resolved by replacing the battery. See video above.

Emergency Start: There is a way to start the car in case of emergency. If you don't have access to new battery then you can start the car by pressing the button with your key FOB. There is a sensor in your key below Nissan logo which should be kept near the Start-Stop button when pressing it. This should work even if there is no battery in the key. You can give it a try.

What is this Chevrolet part for?

It is not for keyless entry but the built in theft deterrent. Which means if the car is started without a key it keeps the instrument cluster (Speedometer, Gas, RPM, Etc.) from working. It is a lot harder for a thief to drive with no speedometer.

    My 2004 v6 ford explorer won't start new batery and new starter no luck wont even click ?

    Did you check the start relay for voltage? Ohms reading?

    If I remember correctly the circuit goes like this:
    Key turns ignition switch which puts voltage to the start relay which engages the solenoid.
    So if it isn't even clicking and your headlights seem to be working fine then it is either the ignition switch or the start solenoid coil.
    On older Fords the start solenoid used to be remote mounted on a fender. I heard newer Ford vehicles had it integrated with the starter like GM does.
    A quick visual inspection will tell you which and where you need to look.
    You might check if there is a fuse for that as well.
