This is due to a dead battery, the problem is getting into the car to connect jumper cables to try and start the car, alot of these cars are all eclectronic controllled and the key fob is what controls door locks and starting but with a dead battery it cant communicate with computer, if the doors are locked and theres no lock on the door to unlock it then you will need to have AAA unlock it with a tool that goes inside to release lock and then gain acess to battery and replace it or jump it, and go from there, it may just be a bad battery or something was left on like a light but most of these cars have an anti drain module which will shut power down if something is left on until the engine is started. good luck and hope this helps.

Whether your key fob is damaged or just has a dying battery, there is a way for you to unlock your vehicle and start the car. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Press and hold the auxiliary key release button on the underside of the key fob.
  2. Grab the looped end at the top of your key fob.
  3. Pull out the auxiliary key.
  4. Use the auxiliary key to unlock the driver's side door.

HOW TO START THE MAZDA 3 WITH A BROKEN OR DEAD KEY

Now that you've managed to enter the vehicle with the auxiliary key, you're going to need to know how to start your Mazda 3. At this point, the auxiliary key can be put back into the key fob, as the key fob can still be used to start your vehicle. This will only take a few extra steps.
  1. Make sure the shifter is in the Park (P) or Neutral (N) position.
  2. Depress the brake pedal.
  3. The light on the engine start button should flash green.
  4. Take your key fob and touch the back of it to the push button start.
  5. When the green light on the engine start button stops flashing and remains continuously illuminated, press the push button start normally to start the engine.
  6. It is recommended you allow the vehicle to idle for about 10 seconds.

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

New Dodge Journey 2011 Where would the key enclosed in keyfob fit to start the vehicle if remote not working?


I just changed the battery in my fob for 2011 Journey Crew, with the battery removed ( from fob ) I did start my car by pushing the start button whith my fob... so the theory is tested and true.... also the battery you'll need is CR2032 available everywhere... and removing the battery will NOT remove the programming of your fob ( also tested )... so no need to visit the "steelership" Hope this helps....

I repalced the right headlight but did not disconnect the negative battery cable per the owners instruction manual and now my key fobs do not work. However, my check engine light is no longer shows up on...


To clear all computer problems on any vehicle; disonnect the battery for 15 minutes and reconnect - I would try that first. It's kinda like doing a reboot on your PC...essentially you're doing the same thing when you disconnect the battery on a car.
If the check engine light appears again...take the vehicle to have the codes read.
As far as the FOB goes, that may be just a battery issue in the FOB itself, although it may seem coinsidle, I don't think it's related.

Good Luck,
Mike...
