This happened to me plenty of times. Once I was told the battery was corroded. Next I needed an ignition switch. Then I replaced my fuel pump. And finally I needed a head gasket intake. Oh and I also needed a new computer. Hundreds of dollars later, I am still having problems so best of luck. A lot of problems with these cars so this is more of a warning than a solution.

Check spark plugs and fuel pressure regulator.

Alarm wont set 2008 jeep commander


the car came with 2 RKE FOBs
are both dead.?
alway have 3 FOB if not you can not reprogram a new one. self.
can cost you $300 for more to tow your car to the dealer if the 1 fob dies. never run one fob. or bad happens.
put in a new battery in the FOB for door issues
the transponder part does not use the battery .
the transponder must be good, or the car would never run.
the jeep cuts fuel after 2 seconds if the transponder fails.

Disable factory alarm


will the alarm stop by itself after a period of time?

I had a car once that sometimes the alarm would go off while I was driving and id have to get out, shut door, put key in door and lock and unlock the car and it would turn the alarm off, and sometimes by just starting the car will turn them off... If you cant even start the car, or anything, you will probably have to call someone....... But first I would pop the hood and disconnect the battery for.. idk 10 minutes?(certain systems in the car can actually store a temporary charge) then reconnect the battery cable and see if alarm goes off? Leave the door open and such and unlocked while doing this and possibly when you re connect the battery cable it wont be activated

Turns over good but wont start, ran a little funny a couple of days ago . Today started and died , then ran all the way home ! Tonight went out to sart it , it didnt want to start then the 2nd time it...


Check for spark-if you have a tachometer, see if when you crank it the tach needle moves-if not, you probably need a crank sensor, which are not too expensive or difficult to replace.

Replaced remote battery and alarm system wont activate


That is a REALLY INTERESTING problem you have. Let me get this straight.... The remote WILL lock the doors, BUT WON'T OPEN them? If that's the case, take the vehicle into Hyundai and have it daignosed - WIERD problem.

1998 cad alarm no start


Your GM product has a safety alarm, it shuts down the radio , or locks it.
I send ours to a GM dealer to get it unlocked. They don't give those codes out.
