You need to have the instructions and follow them step by step EXACTLY. I was having the same problem when I first bought it.

Without knowing what you're doing, it's difficult to tell what you're doing wrong, but the first step is to refer to "frequencies" - not "codes". You didn't mention whether or not you have the owner's manual for your scanner, but that's where the best programming instructions can be found. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

You also need to make sure that you have the current frequencies for your area, and remember - your scanner will not work with trunking systems. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

My midland wr100 is going off for the wrong county, sometimes not for a county that isn't even programmed!!!


Press the menu button once until you see "TIME", press the up arrow until you see "SAME SET", press select, you should have "SINGLE" selected if you are only wanting to get alarms on one SAME code. Press "SELECT" the screen should go to SAME 01, press select again and confirm that you have the correct SAME code entered. "MULTIPLE" will allow for more than one SAME code to alert and "ANY" will set the unit off for any SAME code alert.

Chrysler sebring code p0513


P0513 stands for invalid SKIM Key. Basically it means that the "computer chip" that is in your ignition key which has a special code is not recognized by your vehcile compter (PCM). In most cases that I have come across is that either your VIN is not entered or is the incorrect VIN programmed into the PCM. Have you recently changed the PCM ? You may try another ignition key but I doubt that would work unless you are using the wrong key for the vehicle. You will need special diagnostic computer programs in order to correct this problem. Most likely your PCM will need to be "Flashed" to the VIN. This really isn't a weekend/backyard/part time mechanic fix. Hope this helps you to understand what the code is and what it means. Guessing the vehicle won't start.....

I need the keyless entry programming code for my 01 Audi A4 Quattro 1.8T Note: Driverside lock doesn't work with regular key, and is the only lock on the entire car.


That isn't how it works, you must have the dealer reprogram the whole system to correct this if the loss of program is the cause. You can't do it at home it requires a special tool to go int the control modules programing option.

How do i unslide a HTC phone?


If the Hermes works in the same way as the wizard, the orientation switching is done with magnets (wave one over the screen and see)

What my (admittedly non programming and possibly very wrong) brain tells me is that as there isn't an 'app' that swithches the screen, there wouldn't be anything for you to modify

Although it is possible I'm hopelessly wrong!

Presario C714NR gr983UA#ABA ALPS touchpad does not work I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers but it still does not work


I had a similar issue with my ASUS. Try finding a program on your computer other than the Control Panel that controls the trackpad. For instance mine is Elan Smart-Pad. Usually working with some of the configurations in the program reinitialize the trackpad. If that doesn't work make sure that it isn't turned of due to keyboard interference (hitting a button that turns the trackpad off). Hopefully that isn't the case though.

I have the Vigoro (196-036)/Melnor water timer. I bought it last year to replace a different model. I replaced the battery and set the program this year, but the program isn't working. I can use it...


At the
Bottom right there is a button to turn the program on and off. Make sure you have it on. I think a black little
Bar shows if it is on.
