Hi,

Without knowing the exact make & model, a generic response would be:
1. try removing the power source. If it is a portable, remove the battery, if it is mounted, remove the fuse or battery cable/connector/power cord;
2. if it has a reset button, do a full reset;
3. if it has a removable/replaceable backup/memory battery (Lithium) remove temporarily;
4. if the battery/power source is rechargeable, try recharging for 16 hours.

Otherwise, would appreciate if you could post back with make & model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    In my Meridian, this problem was due to corroded battery terminals and the corrective solution was to clean by scraping with the use of sandpaper. Thereafter, every time I take out when fishing, I apply a light spray of WD40 to keep off the seawater.

I have a second key for my peugeot 207 57 plate i need to activate the key but not sure if i can activate it myself


On all the cars I have done, you insert the master key and turn the ignition on for 30 seconds, turn it off and insert the other key within 5 seconds and turn it on for another 30 seconds. Turn it off. then try to start the car with the new key. I haven't done a peugeot, though..

REMOTE KEY INITIALIZATION For this type of key.
attachment.php?attachmentid=11303&d=1375746027&thumb=1&s=cdbd899db156db62f9d976a9f18e6663

The initialisation of the FZV keys is required to establish the Lock/Unlock signal synchronisation with the GM V. The initialization procedure provides the GM with a key identification number and a "rolling code" for each key. If the initialisation is not performed, the GM will not respond to the key signals. Up to 4 remote keys can be initialised. They must be initialised at the same time. Key initialisation is only possible with the vehicle unlocked.

Procedure:
1. Close all doors and have all keys available.
2. Using key number 1, turn the ignition switch to KL R, then switch off within 5 seconds and remove the first key.
3. Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition switch to "off" Press and hold button #2 .
4. While holding button #2 , press and release ("tap") button #1 three times within 10 seconds.
5. Release both buttons. The LED in the key will flash momentarily. The GM will immediately lock and unlock the doors signalling a successful initialisation.
6. If additional keys need to be initialised repeat steps 3 - 5 within 30 seconds.
7. Switching the ignition to KL R completes the initialisation.

SERVICE NOTE:
The key memory function of the GM responds to the key identification number of each key. If the keys are not initialised in the same order prior to initialisation, the key memory functions activated by the keys will not be assigned correctly. Always initialise the keys in the same order.

Will not start


Hey Sidney. On G6 it has a pass lock anti theft- in which your key is programmed into the computer. If the key is not programmed into the computer or ECM, then nothing at all, heres the steps, and where it says a new cut key on 1, ignore that, just use your key, and also you will need to take your g6 into the dealership and have them reflash the ECM, and program the VIN number into your new ECM, if not it might throw the check engine light.

1. Insert a new cut key in ignition and turn key to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

2. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds. 3. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

4. Turn key OFF then back ON. The key is now programmed.
Start vehicle to test key.

How to program the key for my bmw 750i model 1997 to lock/unlock the door


BMW 7-Series - Key Remote Programming
Three methods to try:
Method 1:
1. Working from within the vehicle and with the doors shut
2. Turn ignition to position 1 and back to off within 5 seconds.
3. Remove the key from ignition and press and hold the unlock button for 15 seconds during this time press the key lock button 3 times within 5 seconds.
4. Release both buttons.
5. Doors will lock and unlock to show correct programming has occurred.

Method 2:
To do this procedure you need to have one working key and one key that needs to be programmed.
1) Get in and close all doors.
2) Turn on the ignition and turn off quickly. (No more than 5 seconds) to start the process. Next action must take place within 30 seconds.
3) Remove the 1st key.
4) Hold the key up near your left shoulder (this is so it is closer to the remote receiver antenna.
5) Hold down the unlock button and press the lock button 3 times. Release the unlock button and the doors lock which confirms the operation.
6) Quickly repeat steps 4 & 5 for key #2 etc.
If it does not work, try doing the keys in opposite order. Key 2 then key 1, vs 1 then 2.

Method 3:
Alternate if you do not have a working remote
1. Turn key to position 1 five times very quickly 2. Remove key 3. Hold unlock button then press lock button 3 times, release unlock button.
4. If you have another key do the same button pressing within 30 seconds 5. Turn on ignition to finalise.
PLEASE NOTE: This programming procedure programs the remote control part of the key. Any transponder chip for the immobiliser (starting of car) will not be programmed and must be done by a specialist.
