Hi Gary

A couple of things, firstly yes the gap i the starter is relevant it suggests that there is either a bad earth, poor connection to either the starter or altenator and / or a fuse may be faulty thats not to sday it has blew as on occasion they can melt when a car is jumped off, especially if the car or van jumping it had a higher amp-age battery.

Secondly regarding the ECU issue why I cannot say for sure this will work it is worth a try with the current situation your having. Disconnect the car battery charge it up if you think that it insufficient power to start the car, if you can leave the battery disconnected overnight, this will allow the ECU battery backup to drain and hopefully reset the ECU back to factory settings.

When you reconnect the battery attach the red "positive" first then the earth "black" second. Lock the car and leave it for about 2 minutes then open/unlock the car and try to start it.

Let me know how you get on with this firstly then get back to me, if no joy there are a few things you can try without forking out for new parts. Also it would be up to the dealer to prove the damage occurred during the jump start, you should argue your point as a paying customer.

Did the garage run a volt meter on the battery? if not they should have before making any diagnosis on the ECU. Relay's & fuses could be a cause as the relay may be sticking hence the slight gap in starting, in theory it would jam after the click not completing the circuit. There are 2 lots of fuses, small type that are found in the car for things like the radio, lights etc and there are larger fuses for the car's computer and main running of the larger components such as alternator & engine wiring, again the garage should have checked these already.

Hope this helps, be careful the dealer is not trying to rob you as they often do. If I can help further please message me back, If I do not respond right away I will get back to you in the morning. as it is getting late here in the UK.

Regards
Dan

Hello, The Ford systems are real sensitive to Battery fluctuations. You need a fully charged battery to start out with. If the battery is too low and the jump is removed, the car can stop charging.

Ford also made it to reduce the Voltage to the starter. If the battery is low, the Antitheft will reduce the battery voltage to 7 Volts or less.

There are also Relays in the Powerbox. The Ignition Relay may be bad. I understand that the Horn Relay is the same part and if you check the part numbers on the Relays you may be able to use the Horn Relay to get home.

A fully charged battery wil show 13.2-13.6 Volts. All of the Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles can malfunction like this, so it just isn't your individual car. Your Battery is 5 years old and anything can happen.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Changed battery and now remote doesn't work. it is on a 2005 ford freestyle


press the helpful button,there appears there is more then one type of remote, I think one has auto start and one does not.

owners manuals in the glove box and in there was the Ford Auto Start Remote booklet. For those of you who need to program a new auto start remote, you turn the ignition to the on position, push and hold the little over-ride button (mine is down on the left side kick plate near the hood release) for about 15 seconds, you will hear a chirp which means the system is ready to be programmed, just hit the lock key on your remote and the system will chirp acknowledging the remote has been programmed, continue to do this will all other remotes you have within I believe it was 20 seconds - then shut off the ignition and test your remotes. Worked perfectly for me.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

My 2004 Town and country van had to be jump started and now key fob won't lock or unlock doors.Took key fob to locksmith he said key fob was working, van was not reading signal and he didn't know what


The fob may need to be reprommed to the car. Do the following:

Grab your working remote. Push the LOCK button five times, allowing exactly two seconds to pass between each press of the LOCK button. Insert the ignition key and turn it to RUN. Push and hold UNLOCK on the working remote for 6 seconds. Push and hold PANIC for one second while continuing to hold UNLOCK. Release both buttons at the same time.
Push any button on the remote to program it. Then push any button on the remote that was already programmed. It has to be reprogrammed. The remote is now programmed to the vehicle. Turn the key to OFF.

Does the remote key for push button start have anything to do with it not starting


If the remote is damaged the car might not start. If battery in remote is dead it also might not start. However, there should be a key fob slot somewhere inside the car ( usually around the driver side knee area or inside center console ). I never worked on a 2013 Accord so I don't know the exact location, but your Service Manual should show you exactly where it is located. From my experience with Nissan dead key fob has to be in slot for car to start. Lexus/Toyota you have to tap push button START/STOP couple times with the remote fob for it to start.

Remote control has stopped working. Have tried changing the battery of the remote control but that did not work.


Does the red light on the remote light up when you push any of the button
if no, replace remote
if yes, then try repograming the remote to the car again.
-Have remotes' ready. if you have two then fob#1 and fob#2 (doesn't matter which one is #1 or #2)
-each step has to be done within 5 sec or it will not work, but don't do it super fast.
1.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
2.turn key off
3.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting)and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
4.turn key off
5.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting)and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
6turn key off
7.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 twice (if you only have one fob, then stop here and go to step 8)and push the "lock button" on fob#2 twice.
8.turn key off and remove key from ignition.
if you did it right, remotes' should work again.
good luck
