    It is the key that is 4 month. The car is a 1994 model. No warranty. I bought a new key because the old one lost connection. The battery is good. I think it may be a bad connection some place in the car, but I dont know where too look. It is more unstable in wet and warm weather. Any suggestions?

    I have no warranty. The car is from 1994. The key is often a problem and therefore I bought a new one. The battery is of cuorse in order. In warm and wet weather the system seems more unstable. I belive there must be an connection problem inside the car, but I dont know where too seek. Any suggestions?

Welcome to Fixya. If the problem is intermittently happening it seems that there is a problem with the sensor of the remote or with the car it is not communicating with each other. Make sure that the battery i full charge or not empty and if still have the same problem i suggest that bring it back to the store for repair. I believe that it still has warranty since its only 4 months old.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

    It is basically a connection problem a sensor problem however if you're not familiar about opening and changing parts of RC or Remote it is better to ask a local tech who knows more about sensors and wirings to check the problem. Thanks

probably the FOB, just because other functions work does not mean that the lock/unlock will work. This is the most used function and the one that goes first.

The central locking air-pumps often fail on these models, or leaks develop in the air lines of the system. They aren't typically easy to repair when leaks develop as they must first be traced, but if you are lucky, then it may just be a pump issue.

The locking system is controlled by vacuum . It is really hard to figure out because there are so many things that need to be checked. You can look for broken vacuum hose under the hood. Or under the dash. There are vacuum controls in the doors. Theres a vacuum canister in the trunk. Good luck This may help some. Leave comment.

Sounds like your pneumatic pump has failed or the fuse has blown. There is no reset per say. Contact dealer for replacement owners manual or ebay.
