Check your venicle owners manual for how to sync your remote to your vehicle. Connection was lost after battery was removed. Your vehicle must be taught to recognize the new remote signal again.

Key remote doesn't work

you need to check the remote control door lock actuator (rcdlr) but to do that you need a scan tool may need to take it back to the dealer in my opinion and just because the remote buttons work does not mean its synced to the vehicle good luck

Hello there!

What this looks like is a problem with the batteries. Your batteries might be very low and need replacing. I would suggest replacing the batteries in your remote and seeing if that works.

If this does not work, you can try permanently syncing your Wii remote again.

You can do this by:
Step 1. Turn on the Wii console.
Step 2. Open up the back of the Wii remote and press the little red button that says "SYNC." next ot it.
Step 3. While the Wii remote's 4 LEDs are flashing, press the big rectangular "SYNC." button on the Wii console (in case you didn't know this, the Wii's SYNC. button is located under the plastic flap on the front of the Wii console, with the SD card slot). Wait a second, and the remote will register as a remote on the Wii console. This is the only sure-fire way to sync a Wii remote. TIP: make sure when you turn the console on, that you press A on the remote you want to be first player first, or it might get the remotes' player orders mixed up. They will still be synced to the console, but just in undecided orders. You will have to press A for the remote(s) you want to use every time you turn on the Wii console.

If all else fails I would suggest contacting Nintendo support at 1-800-895-1672 and they should be able to help you further. You could also go to your local electronics store that sells Wii products and get a replacement and follow the syncing as stated above.

Remote locking doesnt work with key also doesnt with interior switch. hazard switch located with interior switch doesnt work either

You have a couple of issues here and both should be addressed by BMW or a specialty shop. Your lock issue is the locks are out of sync and there's a specific procedure to re-sync. The hazard switch could be the switch itself or a wiring issue. I'd have BMW look at it, besides they warranty their work for 1 year after repair.

Trying to sync my dish remote to a Harmony remote but it doesn't sync. Have a Dishdvr 522

Hi. For most Dish Network devices, you will have to ensure that the remote address is set on 1 in order for it to be controlled by the Harmony remote.

To reset your Dish Network device to remote address 1, you can do the following:

1. Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.

2. Using the original Dish Network remote, press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release SAT.

3. Using the NUMBER PAD, press the 1 button

4. Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.

5. Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information screen is 1.

6. Press the SELECT button on the front panel to close the System Information screen.

That should get the device working with your Harmony 700!
Hope it helps :)

How to sync palm desktop to iphone without using outlook

Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is synced up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard. This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards.

Bring up Windows Address Book. You can find this in Start, All Program, Accessories, Address Book.

Using Windows Explorer, drag the vCard file you created in step 1 to the Windows Address Book window. I had never used Windows Address Book, so it was empty. If yours isn't empty, you'll have to decide whether you want to merge your contacts.

When you drop the file, you'll get a window asking you to confirm the first contact. Press OK. Another window will come up for the second contact. Press OK until all windows are gone. It's easiest to hold down the Enter key.

Bring up iTunes with your iPhone plugged in. Go to your iPhone page, to the Info tab, and configure it to sync from Windows Address Book. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the window.

Sync your iPhone. Verify that your contacts transferred over.

Tell iTunes to stop syncing with Windows Address Book, since you probably only wanted a one-way sync. Your contacts will be backed up anyway by iTunes, so the Address Book sync feature doesn't buy you much.

I was trying to register the Wii Balance Board for my Wii Fit. I think I may have presses the sync button on the Wii console too long and caused my Wii remotes to become unregistered. How can I correct the...

Hey wva54ccc,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, holding the sync button down for a prolonged period does clear all synced devices from the Wii's memory. In order to "start from scratch" and resync your remotes, you'll want to do the following:

1) Turn the Wii off and unplug it for at least 1-2 minutes. After this time has elapsed, plug the Wii back in.

2) Turn the power on again, and press the "Sync" button on the front of your Wii console for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen is being displayed. This will clear all previously synced devices from the Wii's memory.

3) To sync a remote/accessory to the Wii, you'll need to press the small red button located just beneath the batteries. When you do so, the blue lights on the front of the remote/accessory should blink.

4) Next, quickly press the "Sync" button on the Wii console again.

5) After the "Player" LED light stops blinking and stays lit, the remote/accessory is synced and no further actions are necessary with that remote.

6) Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 for each remote/accessory you wish to sync to your Wii.

Should following these steps not resolve the problem, I'd strongly suggest checking out Nintendo's Wii remote troubleshooting website for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
