Try changing the remote batteries first sometimes that can be the problem. If that doesn't help at all then most likely you may need to replace the remote key. Also double check the setting in the instrument cluster to make sure the easy entry option is set to steering wheel and seat. The other possibility may be if the battery in the trunk is weak. A low charge can cause problems too and you may or may not get a message on the cluster that reads consumers offline.

Driver power seat


The automatic driver's seat may have been programed not to move forward when the key is in and go back when it's taken out. Or are you saying it doesn't move forward, back and not at all from the control on door panel?

Key won't release from cylinder


This is cause from the automatic steering lock mechanism. Let me give you a little secret that 99% of the time fixes this.

Let me explain. The design is suppose to work like this. You get out into your car, put the key in and slightly turn the wheel to the left and it unlock the steering mechanize. BUT sometimes it gets jammed, like in your case. There are two ways to get this unlocked or jammed to get your key out. Number one is, while key is in of course, really try hard to move your steering wheel back and forth to unlock this jam in steering wheel lock mechanize. On small cars this normally works. But here is my big secret that will help you, it sounds funny but works 99% of the time.

What you do, is you need to get the weight of the front wheels, as that is what needs to be turned and eases the tension off the wheels, to turn wheel a inch of so, until the mechanism release to pull key out. So, This sounds funny, but works. Jack up the front of your Blazer, and after front end is jacked up, so wheels are off ground, then try and turn wheel hard and pull key out. I assure you, sounds funny but works. If not, then you have a broken key ignition, but I would not worry about that, just follow my instructions on the jack up method. Please if this helps you, maybe you can rate my help and a positive testimony would be nice for this free advice and solution. Thanks Mike

I just purchased a 2008 Toyota Highlander with the smart key ignition system. How can I prevent being stranded if the smart system won't start the car?


If the smart key battery gets low to where it won't start the car you can hold the smart key with the logo facing the start button close to the button then push it to start the engine.

Power seat moves back and forth each time key clicked to unlock car doors. It doesn't stop moving until I manually touch the seat power button.


your seats have a MEMORY stored with each key

use your seat control button to reprogram the seat

however, you need to know if the key you have is the primary key or secondary

first program as driver one and then use the key
if seat moves then program as driver two


if however... you mean that the seat is always moving, AT ALL TIMES, and you ALWAYS have to readjust with the seat switch then you probably have a module concern

My front electric seat wont move as it is suppose to when you open the door or when start the car should return to prest position it should also move the steering up or down or in and out to presets


I had to do this on a Nissan Armada. Get the owners manual out and find the section on resetting the seats. Something about opening and shutting the door two or three times with the key on after you have set the seats where you want it. But the owners manual is more clear on the procedure.

1996 ford explorer anti theft system


Yes I agree it's the 'smart key'. Normally when you buy an explorer new, you will get 3 keys. 1 of the keys is a valet key.
If you were to copy another key that has a smart chip (transponder) in it, the new key won't work until you 'program' the third (new) key. To program it you need the original 2 keys that work.
The only other thing could be that there was a remote start in the vehicle and there could be something wrong with the module that bypasses the transponder. If there is a remote start in the vehicle you might be lucky to some extent if it still works.
If you move the shifter hard and it worked before, like you said, there could also be damage to the wires that goto the key cylinder, the reciever for the transponder in the key. Try having someone hold the key in start and use the tilt wheel, that too will tell you theres damaged wires if it starts.
Unfortunately you probably will have to bring the vehicle to a ford dealer to get additional keys programmed or the damaged part replaced.
It shouldn't cost too, too much. Just be glad you don't have a Saab, replacement key's are $145 Ea!
If your inclined, you can dissassemble the plastic shroud around the steering column and look for damaged wires coming from the black ring around the key down the the connector under the dash.
