Mazda 6 Sport.recently changed batteries & Key doesn't always work;car start,open or lock doors. Red key light sometimes comes on? Any ideas?


use a scan tool to reset the ECM program as the battery removal may have corrupted the CPU program for all that you mention
if you changed the fob key battery ,it may be necessary to reprogram the key to the immobilizer.

Battery was changed, now car won't start key stuck in ignition.


Can you turn the key ? ON - OFF Who changed the battery ? When you change a battery you need to use an external battery supply till new battery is in , so this doesn't happen ! You may need to have it towed to the dealer to have a module reset done ! Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems

Why is my remote not locking car after changing key batteries ?


One problem can be when changing batteries be careful not to push any buttons, this can cause problems or if the batteries have been dead for a while, looses its "frequency" the alarm in the car is not picking up the transmitter in the key.(key and alarm in car out of sync ) get the keys re-coded. depending on which bmw you have you can DIY ( google re-coding bmw 5.. keys) or go to bmw.

Changed the battery on 2001 AudiA4, 1.8t, won't start now


So you changed the battery in the key? and this is the problem i suspect that you have lost the chip out of the key when you took the key apart to change the battery ,dont worry its happens to the best of us the phone rings or you get distracted -if you have lost the chip then try the spare key if you do not have one call the dealer and have a spare key and a new chip in your key programmed up-

Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...


My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

I changed my car battery, now my 2008 Nissan Altima key fob won't work


There is a special procedure involved in keying your fob to your car once the battery has been changed. You must lock and open the door with your key. Turn the ignition to "on"(not start) then push the fob's open and close button, then shut off ignition. This procedure is done everything the key battery is changed. Hope this can help you!

Smart key remote is slow acting and will not allow starting up the vehicle. Can the battery in the Smart key be replaced; and how? Does it have to be re-programmed?


Hello. Great question.

Yes, the battery can be the culprit, and it is easily changed.

Remove the metal key from the side of the smart key, and then split the casing of the smart key, via the slot. There is a small circular battery that you can remove and replace. Use the exact same battery.

No Re-programming is necessary. The smart key frequency is coded to the car. Changing the battery does not change the frequency.

Thanks for such a good question.

Replace battery in key


If you have the diamond shape key, the battery is not replacable. If you have the square shaped key, the battery is replacable, but that is obvious because of the screws on the back of the remote.if you have the diamond shape key, it is recharged when its inserted into the ignition. If the key hasn't failed, taking a long trip 60 min. or longer should recharge the battery. If there is no change in the operation of the key after your long trip, most likely the key has failed and needs replacement.
