Question about Cars & Trucks

Replaced battery in remote for 2006 chevrlet corvette cnvertible and it still won't open the door or tart the engine. How can Iopen the doors and the hood so I can check and maybe jump the battery

Is there a way to get into the corvette without the remote so I can release the hood to check the battery? If the battery has gone dead will I need to have the corvette reprogrammed so it will talk to the remote? Is there a trick to replacing the battery in the remote so that it won't lose programming?

Changing the battery in the remote won't affect the programming, and neither should a dead car battery. I am surprised there is no keyed entry on the driver's door.

SOURCE: CAR IS LOCKED, BATTERY DEAD,

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Sir it's impossible to open the hood from the outside if it's locked. There's no way to enter the door for the battery is dead. It's sad to say that the only option we got is to break the side glass to gain access to the locks. It's the only easiest way though I know it's sound crazy.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore


When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

My 2006 volvo s40 won't start and the key (remote) does not work. Had to use regular key to open the door. alarm still on and car won't start.


I had the same problem when my battery went flat and tried to use jumper cables connected to another vehicles battery. I called Volvo and they said I need to disconnect the battery terminal to reset the computer. After re-conecting it the remote control worked again and I was able to jump start the car. Maybe your car's computer went into a similar state.

The remote battery died and after replacing it the remote doesn't work, the red led blinks but the door won't open.


The remote needs to be programmed when the battery get's replaced. You will most likely have to take it to a dealer to have it done.
