No, your key fob is tied to your computer, and making simple ways around it would defeat the purpose of having anti-theft. The anti-theft systems are designed to keep down theft because how popular a brand of car is to thieves, directly affects insurance premiums.

Yaris hatchback wont open

The remote may have a bad battery or the system has lost programming, refer to the owner's manual to change the battery in the remote and if that doesn't cure it the dealer must use a special tool to reprogram the system to the remote frequency. This solution is based on the fact that both the remotes don't work, the remote can be bad, this is esp true if it has been dropped.

Why doesn't trunk open with remote

If you have never replaced the remote's battery, it may be time. The 'coin' type batteries do live long but not forever and mfr.s typically suggest that the lithium cells have a 'shelf life' (unused) of more than five years.
I don't know the construction of your remote so don't know if the battery is user-replaceable or not and if not, the dealers usually take advantage of customers when they can. The batteries alone are cheap costing a few dollars at worst.
If you have the 2nd remote stashed somewhere, you might try it if it has not been in use. Even then, the battery may quickly be depleted in the spare too.

I dont have the remote to the stock alarm on my 2003 hyundai sonata and my alarm wont turn off and my car wont start

I know this sounds obvious, but did you run your battery dead? If you don't know, get the battery for as tuning off the alarm... Just simply disconnect your negative battery cable. This will reset the alarm. This doesn't solve the problem but makes it less annoying while figuring it out. What about the battery in your remote, is it dead? Look for any wires from the alarm that may be frayed, cut, or corroded. Hope this helps.

I Have a 2006 pontiac G6 gt with the 3500 engine, The battery was removed positive side first and now after it was replaced the fuel pump isn't working, everything else seems fine but the pump...

You can't fix it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. Sorry.

If it is setting when you turn the engine off, but not turning off when you use your remote then it could be the receiver. If it doesn't set when you turn the engine off, then the first thing I would check is the fuses. It can get complicated to track back problems of this sort, because one sensor can throw everything off.

I turn the key it clicks but doesn't turn over. Starts on the 3rd try.

Most of us have had this problem over the years. Three possible solutions.
Battery - If this is the original battery it's probably needs to be replaced. First check the battery terminals for tightness, corrosion, and the ground end is tightly secured to the chassis. Tighten and clean them up with baking soda, water, and a steel brush. Spray them with an after-market battery corrosion preventer. This is the simplest solution and hopefully takes care of the problem.
Starter solenoid and Starter - Starter solenoid mounting position is usually pretty close to the battery or mounted on the firewall. The contactor that closes when the ignition switch is activated by the key may be worn out. This is usually a do it yourself replacement with parts available from a parts store. Replace and ensure all terminals are clean and tight.
Starter - Starters get a lot of wear but don't usually fail. To check it out the starter can be removed and taken to a parts store where they have a test bench and they will crank it and check it out.
Ignition Switch - These wear out resulting from all the key twists. Switch has small contactors and wire connections that may become loose or just plain wore out. For security and anti-theft reasons this is hard to get at. Usually involves removing he horn pad, loosening the wheel nut and pulling the steering wheel to get at. You will need to loan or rent a wheel puller from the auto parts store and this may be a dealer item taking time to order.
The parts stores have excellent manuals on Chrysler Automobiles. They help with trouble shooting, locating components, and provide a good step by step guide to disassembly and re-assembly or parts.

1996 Toyota Celica remote security system no longer works

Hi, Contact your dealer and get instructions for reprogramming your remotes. When a security system loses power for an extended amount of time the programming for the remotes are lost.

so you are saying you would replace the alarm system just because you cant find a battery?? thats foolish search online for the battery...there are many interchange numbers so it doesnt have to be a certain brand.

Security system not working as it used to

i read this on the subaru tech bulletin page
i had the same problem - apparently i had inadvertently put the system into "valet" mode
to get back to normal, unlock with remote - open drivers door - hold down the unlock button on your remote for 2-3 sec - the flashing light will go out and your system should be back to normal
it's too bad the manual doesn't supply information about activating and deactivating "valet" mode
good luck
