If this is belt drive, check the belt. See if the motor itself spins. If it is not spinning, check with voltmeter to see if there is power to the motor. If so, motor is bad, if not, then you may have a bad control board. Do test door switch with an ohmmeter to see if it is shorting out.

I placed the key in the keyhole but it wouldn't move, and is a bit stubborn. I t couldn't turn on the key..?

if your talking about the ignition then the tumblers in the ignition key switch are probably worn out and it needs replacing as you say it gets stubborn.or the key that you use is so worn that it doesn`t move the tumblers far enough to allow the key to turn,if you have a second key then try it as it may work.if you have a key chain with alot on it the weight can wear the tumblers out.

Tumbler quit moving

Usually this means the belt is broken,the belt may have just been old and worn out and it was time to replace it,or perhaps the wheels locked up or the idler and caused the belt to break. Look around for stiff wheels, bad bearings, glides and idlers. Its a good idea to oil the rollers with some temp resistant oil such as zoom oil. Dont use WD40 as this stuff is highly flammable and may cause a fire.

The problem is in the ignition switch, although NOT an electrical issue. You will need to remove the ignition and take out the tumbler that the keys rides in. On the back side of the tumbler, there is a white tab that is moved by an arm that slides a pin up and down which locks the steering. Dont be intimidated by this repair. I was when I did it, but was actually quite easy. Just take you time and take pics to look back on as reference.

I have lost my instructions to unlock this TARGUS PA400C DEFCON 1 AUDIBLE NOTEBOOK ALARM (PA400C) Do you know where I can find what the default code is?

this may help

Due to the nature of security devices, there is no "magic unlock" code for the Defcon device. To recover a lost combination:

·Set the tumblers to the last known combination.

·While applying pressure to the red release button, rotate the tumblers up one digit and then down one digit on each of the individual tumblers.

·For Example: If your last know combination was 565

1.Set the tumblers to 565

2.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 6 so that the combination is now set to 665 (If this is the set combination the red release button will move in)

3.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 4 so that the combination is now set to 465

4.If not found move onto the 2nd tumbler and repeat step 1-3

5.If not found move onto the 3rd tumbler and repeat step 1-3
