Touareg Key-Fob not unlocking the alarm and now car won't start because of it...

I can unlock the door manually, but when I put the key in the ignition, the car won't start and a sign on the dashboard computer comes on saying "immobil activated" or something like that. I get that this is a security feature, but I need to drive my car - how do I start the car with my inability to turn off the alarm due to a faulty keyfob?

SOURCE: alarm immobillizer

The alarm systems on land rovers are quite tempramental. They work on radio frequencies. If you park next to a radio antenna like they have at post/ telecommunications offices. Then the radio waves they send out can interfere with your cars system, making it think it has been attempted to be broken into, and so immobilises. You should have a 4 digit code called the EKA code. You must have this to knock off the immobilser to start the car. The car must be locked completely, all windows shut and then enter the EKA code using your key.
Hope this helps

Do you have a key fob? Unlock the car with that and you should be OK. My sons Elantra is the same way, you can only get in with the fob. I guess the car thinks it's being stolen otherwise. If you don't have a fob, I'm no help

SOURCE: how to tell what audi tt keyfob to what alarm

If you have an owners manual look at the menu controls on the car computer. You should have choices for the alarm and doorlocks, how long lights stay on, traction control, chimes, bells,etc.. A kindly Audi dealer will probably help you.

Won't start, could it be fob or engine?


Try not using the fob at all open the door with the key. And start the jeep if it works without issue then its the fob. If its still not working correctly remove the battery from the fob and try again(since if it was damaged could be sending the signal for the panic button) the next step is the key try your spare security key can become worn and cause issues with the antitheft system. After that it only leaves computer problems and those can get spendy

2003 Monte Carlo SS, FOBS won't unlock doors (new batterries), use key and open the door with the door open FOB will lock and unlock the door, shut the door and the FOB won't lock the doors. After...


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.

Turn off the car and turn it back on, then check for any alarm buttons. Press those a few times, and try it. Also try to manually unlock the doors with the key.

When we use our key fob to lock the doors, i know we must use the key fob to unlock the doors to avoid the alarm from going off. Recently I parked in a parking garage at an airport (left key fob at home)...


You should be able to just unlock the door with the key, and even if the alarm is still going of try to start it the key should override the alarm.
