The door lock actuator may have gone bad. There are several fixes: Take it to a shop, buy a whole new door lock actuator and install it yourself, or go to the Lexus Owners Club Forum and sign up. You can search the forum for several DIY How To's and you can do it yourself. It is not very difficult if you have some intermediate skills and the right tools. I bought some new motors o on Ebay for $5.00 each and fixed my own. http://www.lexusownersclub.com/

I tried to program a new fob for a 1999 Altima. And nothing worked





1.   Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2.   Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3.   Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4.   Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5.   If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6.   Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.




Make sure you have the right fob for your car.

I have a 2014 Buick Regal Turbo with push button start only and it came with one key fob. My key fob would say can not detect on my DIC( driver info center ) constantly so I replaced battery end same...


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.

I need to disable an immobiliser on my mg/tf car


If your key fob has just stopped working try this:

  1. Unlock your vehicle with the key in the drivers door lock, do not open the door.
  2. Press the right hand button lock button (the button with the padlock symbol or the dimpled button) on the key fob 4 to 8 times.

If the above fails try this:

  1. Open the key fob
  2. Remove the battery
  3. Press any button 10 ten times, and the same with the other button
  4. Refit the battery or a new battery
  5. Unlock the vehicle with the key in the drivers door lock, do not open the door
  6. Press the right hand button lock button (the button with the padlock symbol or the dimpled button) on the key fob 4 to 8 times

Keyless entry remote wont progam


It will not unlock the door the first time you push the button. This only registers the key fob ID into the computer. When you press the button on the key fob, press it only once and wait for the hazzard lights to flash twice again. Then open the driver's door. The key fob will not become active until you open the driver's door.

If your hazzard lights do not flash after you press the button on the key fob, there is most likely a problem with the key fob. Either it is not the correct key fob for your vehicle, or the battery is not in correctly or the key fob is defective.

The only other advice I can give you is to have it programmed with a scan tool. This way, the scan tool can verify that the computer in your vehicle is receiving the signal from the key fob.

It can be done either way, but if the "no scanner" way does not work, the rest of the system should be checked for possible problems.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press
the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming
procedure will not be successful.


5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

How come on a 2002 GMC Denali if you lock your key inside


i would say the theft module saw the door trying to be open without the door lock or fob first, once the door lock button was pushed it shut down, it new doors were trying to be unlocked in a theft manner, once shut down it needs time to reset or needs to see ignition cycle with key and read chip in key, smart system isnt it, good luck.

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.

2004 Civic Drivers door lock


The driver's side door lock button is designed not to lock from the inside unless the handle is pulled, or the power switch is used. This serves as a reminder to not lock your keys inside.

If you are inside, and push down on the button (not the switch) hard enough to lock it, you've probably damaged it.
