Question about GMC Vehicle Parts & Accessories

The unit sometimes locks itself when the keys are left in the car - to explain further when the car is in our garage we do not lock it ( our garage is locked) and leave the keys inside the vehicle but not in the ignition. As soon as the vehicle doors are closed the lights flash,the horn beeps and it locks it self.Why ?

This is caused by the passive antitheft system, once u close the door is activated automatically, don't leave the keys in the car.

My passat central locking self locks when I leave the car


the security system is more than likely programmed to auto lock when ignition key removed and when door closed after you exit the car if you have a owners manual it should explain how to able/disable that function using the dash functions controls if that does not work you have a security system fault and you need to visit a vw garage good luck

How do you lock/unlock a sears craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener wall control that has no lock/unlock button? The lights on the wall control are red and are usually green


On the door itself, there should be a silver cover over a key hole. You put the key in and the centre of the lock comes out and you pull the wire attached to the lock.

You can also try removing the batteries in the wall control and replace them with new ones.

Model 3585 3/4 hp prof LM- today at 4pm all 3 remotes cause 2 flashes from garage unit and no action but does with wireless keypad and wired button. Did my remote programs get jammed? No lock option.


your lock is stuck on. Sometimes a unit will go into lock mode for some unknown reason. If you have a door bell switch for a wall switch then you have to go buy a multi function L/M wall control. They're not very expensive and are easy to install.

Steering/brake is locked and key wont turn


Assuming the car is not running and you are trying to start it, sometimes the steering wheel is locked from the wheel thrying to turn back on itself and this won't allow the key to turn. Try turning the steering wheel all the way to the left or right then while the wheel turned, try to turn the key.

Garage door only opens from button inside garage not by bour remotes in our cars ( 2 remotes )




FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF THE LOCK/VACATION BUTTON ON THE WALL CONTROL HAS BEEN ACTIVATED. THE LED ON THE WALL CONTROL WILL BE FLASHING. - SIMPLE SOLUTION PUSH THE LOCK BUTTON AND HOLD FOR 2 SECONDS TO TURN OFF LOCK FUNCTION.

SECOND TRY TO REPROGRAM THE REMOTES TO THE UNIT - THEY WILL SOMETIMES LOSE MEMORY IN AN ELECTRICAL STORM.

IF REPROGRAMMING DOESN

A 2002 ford Focus with the steer locked and can't start, tried turning the wheels to unlock but it still wont release. help Al


Use all the force you can muster to turn the wheel to the left while trying to turn the key. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing, just turn it to the right. Sometimes the steering wheel lock pin can be stubborn. also **** it to the left and right really hard when trying the key. It also helps to pick the front of the car up with a jack when doing this.

My Audi remote control key fob has stopped working.I've got a 2002 A4 Avant. Batteries have been replaced and still not working. Tried everything but no good tried resetting sometimes works for a short...


hi i gather you have done the rest the key by..pressing one of the buttons, then manually locking and unlocking within 30 seconds, then leaving it 1 minuet to set?, if you have then unfortunately your local garage is correct, you will only be able to get it re-programed from a main dealer...

I have a ford focus, when I press the fob the central locking locks & unlocks all in 1, I then tried to put the key in & lock it manually but it won't lock at all - any ideas, I can't lock the car...


hi this sounds like one of your locks has stuck inside the door, sometimes the locking mechanism gets stuck in the upright position and can not right itself, the only way you might be able to do it for a quick fix is remove the central locking fuse and lock it manually, try locking it from the opposite door that you can not turn the key in that should work, or manually lock the doors from the inside and then lock the last door with the key, then once you have done that try putting the fuse back in and then unlock it, if that does not work you might have to get a garage to remove the door panels and find out which lock is sticking...sorry its not much help but its something you can try.

Light and lock buttons nonfunctional


There are certain models that had only a door bell type wall control and didn't have the lock and light functions. You may have one of these and someone has replaced the wall control with the three button model. If it did work in the past and has quit it is most certainly the logic board and is expensive to replace.

You say it is STILL stuck in the "lock" mode. If you cannot use your remotes you need to program it. Find the smart/learn button just to the left of all those white wires. Press and hold the button on a remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.
