How do you reset remote key after disconnecting car battery?

  • araguti Mar 06, 2009

    My brother's car was recently stolen, a 2006 Subaru Impreza, and he had to replace the ignition switch and keys. Now the car won't start and we do not understand why. The mechanic who fixed it stated that we should take it to the dealership and have them reset something or another but the dealership stated that it should start regardless once we replaced the part. What can we do?

    Worked for me but I didn't need to unplug the battery. However I did need to press the remote buttons more than twice, I just pressed them a lot after it didn't work the first few times.

SOURCE: remote not working after disconnecting battery

If car Convenience Control Module(module that control key remote) lose power- remote adaptation to the car will be lost. This apply to some Audi models.
What you can try to do is:
1. Disarm alarm manually by opening door lock with the key
2. Put key into ignition and turn to on position (don't start the car)
3. Press few times remote button (with the ignition in on position)
Depends on your year model it my work (works on the newer models), if not you have to go to the dealership to program your keys.
Good luck!

SOURCE: i dont have a keyless

Those are bad about the ignition switch contacts not making good contact with the key. The proper fix is to replace the key tumbler assembly.

A work-around for this is to measure the resistance of your key pellet and wiring a resistor across the white and orange wires under the steering column that go to the key cylinder.

How do I reset my Honda 1998 alarm?


1) Make sure you have the radio security code at hand, because it will trip after disconnecting battery. 2) Disconnect battery to reset alarm computer for 5 minutes or so, and reconnect it. 3) insert key in ignition. 4) press on the remote and don't let go. 5) turn the ignition to the accesories/ radio position. at this point you should see a "key" icon flashing on the dashboard. 6) after 10 seconds or so, let go of the remote. Repeat the operation, just to make sure. Also, do the same sequence for the spare remote, because it will lose the frequency as well.

Will not unlock with key fob, have replaced batteries


this usually happens when the battery has been disconnected from the vehicle, what happens is when the battery is disconnected the locking system fitted to the car has a pass-code that only the key-fob can access, as a result of the battery being removed the pass-code for the locking system on the car resets and does not recognise the fob being used. Your best chance to get this sorted is to take it into your local garage/dealer and get the fob linked back up to the cars locking system.

Electronic key won't work after dead battery??? battery went dead and when recharged the electronic keys won't open the doors anymore?


If you have the Vehicle Owners Manual it will instruct you how to reset the Electronic Remote(s) as disconnecting the Battery or a totally discharged battery removes all power from the On Board Chassis Computers memory. Therefore you must reset the Remote(s) so that the On Board Chassis Computer can recognize them. If in Doubt, please consult your Chevrolet Dealer to rectify the problem.

I parked the car for 4 months killed the battery got a new battery installed by mini dealer but the remote key wont work


MINI owner's manual warns against leaving the car sitting for long periods of time without disconnecting the battery. IIRC, you will have to have the remote "reprogrammed", as the memory for the remote function is reset from lack of power.

Jeep one year old. Keyless just stopped working. Engine starts for a second then cuts off. Replaced battery in key/remote and still doesn't work. Now alarm sounds if opened with the key the old...


Assuming you have a second key try using that one to deactivate the alarm, if not replace battery in remote. Does lock and unlock work now? you will need to get the remote operational to disengage the security feature that will not allow car to start.
if not disconnect the car battery let sit for 15 min to reset system try again..make sure bettery in remote is installed properly.
