Resetting my remote?

I've changed the batteries and now the remote will not reset (i've done what it says in the remote and the book, its a pain when the only way to open is the driver door.

also, after i've been driving 20min or more its act like the cruise is on but it just keeps excellorating and i wont have my foot on the gas pedal. i've replaced 4 of the sensors (throttle, mass air flow, temperature & i cant remember the other one have to look at my reciepts when i get home) and still runs away, i'm going to have to replace my brakes because i have to ride them so much. the check engine light stays on and in traffic, stop and go i've noticed the temperature gauge rising, but it hasnt over heated on me so far. Any suggestions? I've also tried setting the cruise control and it overrides it also.

If you've performed the reset procedure exactly as described in your owner's manual and it does not work, you may want to ensure the batteries are installed correctly or that you didn't buy bad batteries.

I wish I could put my hands on your car to see what the other problem is, but have you tried turning the cruise control master switch to "Off"? One cause could be a vacuum leak. There are a myriad of things to address if it still accelerates with the CC off.

I changed h2 and catylic converter,in line filter,muffler,mass air flow censor,and battery still no power could it be fuel pump regulater? fuel pump still pumping

That would have been an expensive exercise. Try resetting the engine management electronics. Disconnect the cars battery completely with your headlights on. Leave the battery disconnected for at least 30 minutes. Leaving the headlights in the on position will kill any residual power left in the car. Obviously, the clock, the radio etc will also lose their settings. make sure you have the Radio pin code BEFORE you disconnect the battery as you will need it to restart the radio. reconnect the battery and try the car again. Resetting the electronics will put it back to factory setting. Hopefully , this will cure your problems. Ive done it a few times on my Ford and its worked fine. If not sure, try looking online for "resetting Ford ECM" there are many videos and info showing this and how to do it.

Aplique alarm 6 14 keeps coming on randomly

The only alarm system I've had is my 12ga with deer slugs.

It shouldn't be too hard to either turn it off, or find the problem power supply. I am thinking the power to the house may have blinked off and on at some point, and the logic of the alarm is freaking out as a result.

Is there a backup battery for the alarm system? If not you could try turning off a circuit breaker at a time until you diagnose which one is powering the alarm system. If you find one that turns the alarm pad off. Leave it off for a few minutes and turn the breaker back on to see if it will reset itself. If the alarm has a battery backup try to remove it and again turn off the circuit breaker. Also search your book for resetting the alarm system.

Hi My mx5 is a 1999 1.8i model. Recently my battery went flat (door left slightly open all weekend) and so needed to jump start it. Since then the ABS light stays on (Suggesting ABS it not working). It did...

Hi, removing the battery wont solve your problem the only solution you have is either that their is actually a problem that will need looking at witch is unlikely as you never had the problem before so the next option would be that you need it resetting this has to be done at main dealers as their is no other way of resetting this warning light.
They shouldnt charge to much for resetting this that is unless their is actually a problem and the battery going flat has reset the warning system then actually finding the problem.

It could be that your brake pads are low and need replacing or it could even be that one of the abs sensors have failed due to the battery going flat causing the power to fluctuate as this can cause sensors to fail. The only way of really knowing is by letting the main dealer do a diagnostic check on your vehicle.

The problem is you could replace parts and still have the light on so the diagnostic check will rule out any major problems.

So im sorry their is no easy fix for resetting this warning light but at least taking it to the main dealers will rule out any faults with the car ensuring your safety and others.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Remote controls for factory alarm system are not working.

Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system. The transmitter does not send the same signal twice to the passenger door module (PDM). • The PDM will not respond to a signal that has been sent previously. This prevents anyone from recording and playing back the signal from the transmitter. • The panic button should still operate normally when the system is out of synchronization. • Resynchronization may be necessary under the following conditions: - The battery in the transmitter is very weak. - The battery in the transmitter was replaced. - The battery in the vehicle has been in a low or no charge condition for an extended period of time. • In order to resynchronize the transmitter with the PDM, perform the following steps: 1. Stand within 1.5 meters (5 ft) from the vehicle. 2. Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds. The door locks should cycle in order to confirm resynchronization.

My battery died after recharging it the alarm buttom needs to be reset. I need to know where the reset buttom is

HI ! I haven' t researched your car for you just yet !

I thought Id quickly mention the common method for reprogramming your alarm & remote, If you still require assistance then just ask me and I will find more about your car :)

Common Methods for resetting/re-learning code

  • Factory Fitted Alarms/ Central Locking / remote comes on ignition key.

Insert ignition key , turn key to accessories / red , press & hold lock/unlock for a few secs.remove key,exit vehicle and try un/lock doors &/or alarm (Some models differ slightly & require engine on or manual use of door locks whilst resetting.

  • Aftermarket /Non-Factory / remote is separately operated
Most use a small back-up battery usually located within the loudspeaker/Alarm unit itself under the bonnet,
Remove this battery for a short period to reset the remote code

The access panel for the backup battery is never in an obvious place. look carefully :)
