    I replaced starter, alternator, battery, block heater, also another man in town is having the same problem . He's replaced everything I have plus put a new motor and transmission. That didn't work so he put a oil pan heater rigjht in the pan. That was another $1400.00. Let me remind you this person also has his car in a heated garage cover with a space heater underneath. I've called this problem straight to GMC. # 1-800-263-3777 press 1 for english then press7 , extention 2609

You most likely have an aftermarket fob and remote start unit.What is the brand on the back of your key fob?You will have to get the proper reset and registration procedures for the particular unit installed in your car to make your key work normally.

    The key fob is the standard Ford Mustang key fob.

My key fob for my 2006 LaCrosse unlocks the doors & opens the trunk, but doesn't lock the doors. Can it be cleaned, or does it need to be replaced?


It is not clear whether the problem is with the fob or the receiver in the car. You could try replacing the fob (they are available online from various sites) but the receiver will need to be programmed to use it, and that usually requires a trip to a dealership (unless you have access to the OEM service manual). Your best bet is to take it to a dealership and have them diagnose and repair the problem.

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.

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.

The dash board says key fob battery 1 is low ... what is it ? what should I do?


The push button devise you use to lock and unlock the doors is your Key fob. It has battery's to make it work, they are inside the fob. Think of it as a TV remote, they use battery's to send the signal to the Tv. Same for your Key Fob uses battery's to send a signal to the car to lock / unlock the doors.

Won't open my door when I press unlock, key won't open door either


can you manually unlock the lock and open the door?? Is it more than one door or just one specific door? If its just one door, yourcactuator inside the door may be bad or you have a wire issue. If its all the doors, more than likely you blew a fuse or a relay(id say fuse)
