SOURCE: key fob will not undo

If you don't have one that works for the vehicle now, you'll have to take it to your local dealer to have it programmed to the vehicle. Some will charge for this, some will do it at no charge.

If you do have a remote that is programmed and working for the vehicle, then the following steps will allow you to program another remote:

1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold the unlock button on the working key fob and hold for 4 seconds, then also press the panic button.

5. Release both buttons and you should hear a single chime to indicate it is in program mode. You have 30 seconds after the chime to program any additional remotes you want to program.

6. Press and release both the unlock and lock buttons simultaneously on the remote you are programming. You should hear another single chime.

7. Within 4 seconds after hearing the chime, press either lock or unlock button on remote that you are programming.

SOURCE: lotus elise 2005 fob and key does not work

Re-synchronize the FOB if the problem is with just one key.

1. Hold down both buttons simultaneously until the fob LED goes out. (10 seconds)

2. Release both buttons -- the LED should come on and stay on.

3. Press the larger fob button for a second, and the LED should flash.

IF re-synchronization doesn't work, you may have to replace the fob. Call customer service with your PIN (on the key-card that came with the keys). IF you don't have the PIN, then you need to call customeor service to confirm/register your ownership of the car.

If the keys are re-synchronized and it still doesn't work:

Re-program.

1. Re-synchronize as above, if you have not done so.

2. Turn the ignition on 3 times within 7 seconds. The red light above the odometer should light and stay on for 3 seconds.

3. Enter the PIN. Immediately after the red light goes out as per 2 above, switch on the ignition and count the number of flashes until it equals the number of the first digit on your PIN, then turn the ignition off, then on again. Do this for all four numbers.

4. What a pain, but if you get it wrong on a count, then you can restart by turning the ignition off for 10 seconds.

5. After the fourth digit, if the PIN is correct, the red light will stay on. Then you can re-test the fobs, and it should work.

Otherwise, call customer service.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my car alarm goes off for no reason

I have the same problem with my Z3 alarm going off, a local BMW specialist has traced it to the pitch sensor which has been damaged due to a water leak, the wires are also corroded. They have quoted £200 to fix it, but advise that the water leak is sealed first because it'll just get damaged again. I've had a look round and it appears the water is getting in by the off side light cluster via the boot gutter.

Key fob not working


Steve, did you try to remove the battery from the FOB to make sure that is the cause? If you did and you are sure of it, the FOB keeps transmitting even though you are not pressing the button. Have it check by any reputable alarm guy. You don't have to go to the dealer.

Alarm on my 2002 F250 started going off all of a sudden while parked and unlocked. the only way I could make it stop was disconnecting the batteries. what's wrong with my truck?


First, take the battery out of your key fob. All of them. Then hook the battery back up on the truck. If alarm doesn't go off, put battery in one fob. Check it out, all functions. Then check the other one. If alarm goes off when you hook truck battery back up, look for a shorted switch to whatever you alarm monitors and sets an immediate alarm when the switch is closed (or opened). If you still can't locate the reason for the alarm, consider replacing the alarm system, but not before you come back here and tell us what happened.

I have a 2000 Montero Sport and my factory alarm keeps going off for no reason about 5 minutes after you get out of the car... Could it be a low battery or is it a malfunction with the alarm system?


You can tell iff the battery is low by useing ur Key to look it.This will only activate the central looking and imobilizer.If you use your fob and the indicator lights on your car dont flash then your battery needs to be changed.

2001 T & C van, driver side back door will not unlock. Also, I am not sure if thisi srelated but the car alarm keeps going off every few minutes ugghhh!


First, check that you're child safety lock isn't set for that door...If thats not possible then the next culprit might be the alarm FOB battery. IF, its an aftermarket alarm FOB you're in luck...changing the batt should do it...If it IS a factory alarm FOB, you have TWO choices...get a new aftermarket keyless entry system $89-129...or go to the dealer for reprogramming the remote, about $89.
Good Luck

Car wont start or turn over.


Hi!
This problem appears to relate to your Immobiliser, When the alarm kept going off you couldn't shut it down with the fob? so after removing the power source to the alarm system and re-connection this fail to start because either the Fob has flat batteries in it or it needs re-coding.
I'm sure if you take the fob to any decent Electrical store or even your local car dealership they will change the batteries for you to eliminate that problem.
Unfortunately if the fob needs coding this can only be done via the cars own dealership.
There you go!
I hope this FixYa'd problem?
