Question about Honda Prelude

1 Answer

I left my car garaged over the very cold winter. When I eventually tried to start the vehicle the infra red key fob would not open the central locking to disarm the immobiliser. There was also no power to any components except the lights. I replaced the car battery but to no avail. The key fob still does not open the central locking or disarm the immobiliser. I changed the battery in the key fob but to no avail. I am at a loss to why the key fob or the car battery do not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Depending on the type of security system, it is sometimes necessary to re-sync the keyfob to the car after a flat battery on the car or the fob.
this is normally just a matter of turning the key to the IGN position and pressing the button on the key fob. you may have to hold the button for a second or two but this will normally re-sync the system.

if it does not work then you will have to sent more detailed information on the security system. ie factory fitted or aftermarket system with make and type (normally found on the siren unit under the bonnet.

hope this helps

It could be the frequency amplifier problem. The AM radio may not work too. Check the fuse first to see if it is just fuse problem. Otherwise the frequency amplifier can cost you $1000.

KIA RIO Central Locking problem


Hello,
1, Use fob to unlock and immediately open passenger door. This will give you access to bonnet release switch.
2, Open bonnet and remove 25AMP Door lock fuse
3, Spray WD40 on key- place in drivers door lock and gently try to open and close- do not use force. Half remove key and spray more WD40 into barrell. Keep gently playing until you can lock and unlock using key
4, Replace 25AMP fuse
5, It worked for me- hopefully for you also

Just bought a 2003 Nissan Navara 2nd hand. Has central locking but no remotes were handed with it, how can i find out if this vehicle has remote central locking or not


The remote should be built into the key. If not the remote central locking would be after-market. After-market remote central locking is part of an anti theft device so the fob you get with the key's has two function's it opens the door and disables the imobliser. If it had a fob and it was'nt with the key's then the ignition would'nt work so the car would'nt start. So it dosent have remote locking. Before giving up check the dash and suround's for a small either green or red light which looks like it was installed after-market if their is one then it still may have remote locking but was disabled for some reason but although it is there unless you really need it don't bother with it because you will need to get it rewired then get a fob which will need to be programed. Hope this help's Cheer's

Was it working before and it just stoped working? Either its not programed to the vehicle or the unlock button is bad. the buttons do wear out over time.

If the key had gone faulty, the key code must be re programmed on the vehicle computer. This can be done only using a PIWIS tool, available at the dealer or at a qualified Porche garage.
Try also the following reset:
turn ignition on,
turn off.
remove the transponder from the column
push any button on the fob within 6 seconds.
This procedure will reset the key synchronizing again with the vehicle computer.

the key has lost its code. open the doors manually and use the central locking button inside the car. hold it down and keep pressing your key fob. this should re code the key
