I would try and replace the battery in the key fob. if that does not solve the issue ( I am sure that it will ) but if it does not -- talk to a mechanic about the reciever unit in the car,, but if you have never replaced the battery in the key since you owned the car I would put my money on that ( 13 years is a long time for such a small battery -- I would say it did it's job well ,, get a new one,, should run you about 4 bucks from Radio Shack or a watch shop ).

You can probably get into the car but it sounds like you need to go to a dealer and have a new fob provided and programmed or maybe the old one can be programmed by the dealer who will know what to do. If you have an auto service club membership they can likely open the door and tow the car to a dealer. If not it might be cheaper to join a club than to pay for these services outright. Sometimes these people are also expert with fobs etc.

Power door locks do not work.


First off, I assume your vehicle is a four door. If you press the door lock switch and there is no noise from any doors.I don't think actuators in all doors and hatch,Are all bad. Sometimes the fuss box on those vehicles go bad. The other problem i have found is the wires run thru a rubber boot.From drivers door to post inside that boot your most likely going to find broken wires. That and a relay is the only other thing all locks would have in common.I'll find out tomorrow were the relay is!

We have a 2004 Chevy impala that has a new starter, new battery. However, sometimes it just won't start. No reason. One day will be working fine then the next day won't start. Maybe try to start an hour...


Hi! Not sure what you mean by "not starting", but I think you mean the battery is completely drained? Try charging the battery and unplugging the review mirrow and pull the fuse for the radio. Wait 12 hours and see if there is juice left in the battery. My 2003 had a constant drain, this fixed it temporarily.

Intermittent starter problem, sometimes turns, sometimes not. changed battery, tested bad, starter worked twice, stopped turning. changed starter, still wont turn.


Many European cars have relays that trigger the starter,maybe yours is bad? New battery and new starter? Need to check battery connections to vehicle especially ground wire to engine block. Starter face and flywheel housing have to be clean for good ground connection.
When it won't start do you try key numerous times? Sometimes (rarely) bad keyswitch.

Hello and thank you for choosing fixya.com. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a local auto parts store and request to have a diagnosis done. (while auto stores vary, this is usually a free service and only takes a couple minutes to complete) to see if any codes are brought up. If so, the representative can tell you what the codes mean, and what needs replaced or repaired. Let them know of the situation. Even if no codes show up, ask them to clear the codes. If this does not work, do the following. 1: make sure that the batter in your key fob is inserted correctly, and that it is the correct size and type. 2. Disconnect the + Positive cable on your battery. This will reset your the vehicles computer. Maybe this will allow the vechile to code up with the fob. If not, I would take it to dealership, or backto an auto part store for further assitance.

I thank greatly for choosing fixya.com. I hope this information is useful to you and helps you get your fob working again. Let me know if you need further assistance, or have any questions or comments. Feel free to rate this information at your earliest convenience.
