Use the same type batteries full charge, same marke do not use another mixed example SONY+EVERYREADY. same polarity
2) clean the contacts batteries with c.cleaner very well
3) tight the spring contacts with pliers very well
4) open the r.control and clean the keypads with c. cleaner see the diagram attached.
try again, otherwise you must go to the repair shop TV for fix it.
God bless you

Trouble shoot Security system 1998 Range Rover

Sounds like the contact in the key remote has been shorted or broken. It has happened to many of my remotes. If you shake it does it sound like something is rattling around inside? If so, its unfortunately broken and you need a new one.

Hi.. I have a Renault Laguna 1996 2.2 diesel..fitted new battery and radio wont work...tried to enter code, but all i get is CODE..THEN 0000, but using the back wheel on hand lever at steering-wheel...

These are the usual instructions for a Renault with a Steering Wheel Remote Control
Turn on the radio and the display will show 'CODE'
Use the steering controls for code entry.
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct first digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct second digit
Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct third digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct fourth digit
If the correct code is now shown on screen,
press and hold the [¬ ] button for up to 10 seconds to store the code
Here is another method if the Steering Remote does not work

These are  the working Code Entry Instructions if the Renault does NOT have the Steering wheel Remote Control
Keep pressing  the Preset [1] for the correct first digit
Keep pressing  the Preset [2] for the correct second digit
Keep pressing  the Preset [3] for the correct third digit
Keep pressing  the Preset [4] for the correct fourth digit
If the correct code is now shown on screen, press and hold the Preset [6] to save it.

Left running lamps, cruise control, horn do not operat and air bag dash light on

Hello.Is your ABS light on?Do you hear a click noise when you turn the steering wheel?If it is,you probably have a faulty clockspring. That electronic piece controls all of those things. The clockspring is located behind the steering wheel. You have to remove the steering wheel in order to access the clockspring. MAKE SURE that the steering wheel is straight ahead before you remove it.
