Sounds like it is time to replace the battery in the remote. If you look around the seem there will be a spot to insert a small screwdriver and twist to pop it open. Sometimes they use really small screws to hold it together. The screws will be obvious when looking at the backside.

My car volvo s40 saying Remote batry low voltage


It sounds to me like the problem is exactly as it's stated - the batteries in your key fob are low. In case you don't know, the electronic fob used to lock and unlock (and in some instances pop the trunk or start the car, if so equipped) runs on batteries. Just like everything that runs on batteries, the shelf life is not infinite. I would suggest researching what battery is inside of your key fob and how to open it. If this isn't something you are comfortable doing (yes, I admit, opening something that small isn't for everyone), you can take the fob into a Volvo dealership or in some cases another qualified service center and they can replace it.

My car won't start. And when I take my key out of the ignition the lights stay on and flicker. first slow then faster and faster.


If it isnt something as simple as a Flat or Low Car Battery it could be the key fob battery.

Sounds as if the imoboliser unit is playing up because of a battery fault..
Check the battery is not low in your key fob.
It is probably easier to Just change the battery in the key fob and should be just a few Pounds or Dollars .

My immobilizer does not recognise my key fob


Put key in ignition.
Press unlock button on key fob.
Immobilizer should now recognize it, if it was original fob but car or fob battery was changed or is now low.

Saabs are particular about batteries that are otherwise good, but just below 12 volts.

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

Replaced battery in crv and now headlights don't work


Check the low beam fuse in the fuse box, usually a 20A. If the fuse is blown/shorted during the replacement of the battery, your lights won't work. Replace the fuse if that's your case. Hope this helps.

The dash board says key fob battery 1 is low ... what is it ? what should I do?


The push button devise you use to lock and unlock the doors is your Key fob. It has battery's to make it work, they are inside the fob. Think of it as a TV remote, they use battery's to send the signal to the Tv. Same for your Key Fob uses battery's to send a signal to the car to lock / unlock the doors.

How do you charge the key fob.. The message on the dash saya that the key fob battery is low.


The key fob does not get charged. Instead you replace the battery inside the Fob. if you look behind the fob it tells you what battery it needs for replacement. CR2032
