Make sure the remote battery has good voltage. If the remote start has a single wire for the antenna, make sure it's as straight as possible. Your better systems have a black plastic antenna that is placed high on the windshield.

My range alarm keeps going off on my sony baby monitor when still in range. how do i fix this?


I took the battery pack out and just used it plugged in. The only problem is the voice activation setting doesn't work. Not sure why it would work on the other setting and not this one? It did quit beeping and crackling though.

The remote start works (starts the vehicle) only when the fob is very near (inside) the controller.


First check the battery voltage. A good new battery will be about 3 volts. If it is significantly less, get a new battery and retry. Examine the battery contacts since you have the remote apart to ensure that they are clean and shiny. If they are dull, use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. If you are still getting poor range you can try to reprogram the remotes to the OEM keyless entry system. The procedure follows.

Transmitter Code Programming

Note: The receiver (ETACS module) can save maximum two codes from the transmitter.

1. Apply the battery voltage to the terminal "6" of DLC (Data Link Connector),{see attached image}. The DLC is located on the left side rear of the engine compartment. The wire color for terminal #6 is red/black.

2. Turn the ignition switch to "ON" position.

3. While coding one transmitter.
Press the lock button of transmitter for 3 seconds over until the turn signal lamp turns off.

4. While coding two transmitters.
Press the lock button of one for 1 second while the turn signal lamp turns on, and then press the lock button of the other for 1 second over until the turn signal lamp turns off.

5. Remove the battery voltage, and then the transmitter code is re-saved on the receiver.

6. Check the operation of the keyless entry system.

If you still experience poor range, you may need the system serviced or the remote replaced.

We have poor range on opener button


Check to make sure your batteries are good. If you have short range on more than one remote you can check this out.

Limited range of your remote controls could be related to radio frequency interference that comes from something in your home or in the surrounding environment. Certain electrical devices can radiate interference; this could be almost anything that is plugged into an electrical outlet.


Please keep in mind that the device can be brand new, or can be an item that has been in use for quite a while. Also, the item may continue to function properly as far as you are able to tell. The only problem with the item may be that it has started to broadcast the interference, with no other symptoms noted.


Some devices are more likely to generate interference than others. This includes TV cable, cable amplifiers, surge protectors, fluorescent lights, battery charging devices (power tools, golf carts, etc.), anything that utilizes a timer (sprinkler systems, lights, alarm systems, etc.), and a myriad of others. If the problem seems sporadic, we can safely assume that the device responsible for the interference is only being operated during these times. Again, please keep in mind that the age of the device does not determine if it is capable of broadcasting unwanted interference. Any electrical device can be the source of the problem.


The first step is replacing the battery in your remote. If the range on your remote does not improve, remove the wall control wires from the overhead unit. If the range does not improve you will likely need to replace the remote control. After replacing the remote, or if you have other remotes programmed in to the opener, and the range problem still exists, please proceed to the Power Down test.


Multiple garage doors:
If you have two garage door units and one is working just fine, you will need to start by unplugging the good unit. This will help determine if the unit with no range starts to function properly. If the range comes back to the bad unit then you will need to replace the logic board on the unit that was unplugged as it is emitting an RF signal that is over powering the other garage door opener. If the range does not improve after the “good” unit has been unplugged, replace the batteries and try programming some additional remotes to determine if the existing remotes are the issue. If the extra remotes do not have any range then you would need to replace the receiver logic board in the “bad” unit.


Power Down test:
To isolate potential sources of interference, turn the circuit breaker off to the garage and plug the garage door opener into an extension cord from another room. If the range improves, then the interference is coming from a device in the garage. If no improvement is seen follow the same procedure, this time turning off the circuit breakers to your home, with the exception of the garage and test the remote controls. If improvement is noted, turn the circuit breakers back on, one by one, until the range problem resurfaces. This will allow you to narrow down what room the problem device is in. You will have to go from there to isolate it further, by unplugging and re-plugging the items in that room.


If you are unable to determine any source of interference, then the receiver logic board in the overhead unit will need to be replaced.

Would you recomend the Audiovox Prestige APS901N for my '06 Chrysler T & C mini van?


IF RANGE IS NOT IMPORTANT I SUGGEST A AUDIOVOX AS9076N . ITS AN ADD ON REMOTE START WHERE YOU WOULD PRESS
LOCK
THEN UNLOCK
THEN LOCK AGAIN ON YOUR FACTORY REMOTE AND THIS WOULD START THE CAR.
I BELIEVE THE IGNITION KEY HAS BUILT IN KEYLESS ENTRY BUTTON ON IT ALREADY. SO WHY CARRY ANOTHER REMOTE?
MOST OF AUDIOVOX MIDRANGE SYSTEMS HAVE THIS OPTION FOR ADD ON REMOTE START SYSTEMS WHERE YOU CAN USE THERE REMOTE OR TIE IT IN WITH YOUR EXSISTING REMOTE.
OTHER UNITS WILL HAVE DOUBLE LOCK OPTION TO START CAR. OR TRIPLE LOCK OPERATION.
