I have an Airworks ceiling fan/light with remote. Worked fine for years. Now battery is being drained very quick.. in a matter of a couple of weeks! Replaced battery but it drains in a couple of weeks


Stuck button, spill on remote causing power drain or most probably you got a batch of weak batteries. Try a different brand and make sure they are alakaline.

My MX-900 Universal Remote Control is completely draining new batteries after just 4 days (with minimal use). The remote is 6 years old and has never had this problem before.


There should be short circuited component/s inside the remote control. It will be good to buy a new one, rather than try to repair this remote control.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

I have prostart 3 way new installed into 1995 f250diesel can't get remotes to conect to the prostart brain box


Verify batteries are installed and installed correctly in the remotes. Examine the batteries and the battery holders on the remotes for "shipping isolators", pieces of plastic film or tape that insulate the batteries from the battery contact points. Verify the batteries are fully charged with a volt meter. Beyond these basic check points, contact prostart support.

Remote unit is draining my car battery. Unit


Hi Rog,

I would first ask you, 'What has changed'?

Then, 'Why do you think this unit is the cause'?

Have you had the battery load tested? Not just voltage but it's ability to hold a charge, to provide the necessary power under load conditions.

Try disconnecting the negative terminal overnight. If when you reconnect in the morning, it's dead, the cause is not a drain.

Get back with me

Sounds like you may have a cable issue. You should have two positive cables one supplying power to starter and one powering vehicle. if the starter power wire is not getting good connection but other is then it will only click. check this wire for corrosion inside cable

How to program a remote control prostart in a jetta 91


Sounds as if the device is now out of the warrenty by now. any Devices like this are common to break down. Im surprised you got 6 years out of the bugger. the companys want you to buy new ones. you can try checking the prostart website fora replacement remote, but the cheapest way out is to goto a wall mart and get a new remote start.
