Question about 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera

1 Answer

Both key fobs will not lock or unlock doors. Put new batteries in and still have the same problem. I can lock and unlock doors with the key, start the car but it seems like the remote is no longer transmitting to the vehicle. The red leds light/flash but the car does not recognize the remote.

Door unlock then locks itself


try the other fob.
the buttons on fobs can short.(its just a plastic membrane with carbon pad in the fob and can go bad.(cracks or crumbles inside...........)
so put the suspected fob far away from car, and use the good new fob. work now, and a new FOB battery, too.
if you only have one fob, now's the time to get the spare.
no fob lasts forever. not not ever.

I have a 2004 Honda Civic LX Sedan. My problem with it is one, where you put the in to unlock the car,driver side, won't turn. I know the problem is the key lock cylinder itself, one of the tumblers wont...


To fix the tumblers, find a trusted locksmith. That's the way I'd go. Honda does have a kit, but, it's not a consumer one. You'd spend a decent amount of money on a kit that would fix hundreds of cars, so, that's why they won't sell it to you.

As for the key fob, have you tried putting a new battery in it? Your description is not very clear. The LX should have come from the factory with a key fob. So, if you got one, make sure it's the correct one with a good battery. To program it, put your key in the igntion, turn the key to position 2 (the position right before you start the car), press a button on the key fob, turn the key back to position 0, Repeat these steps over and over (about 4 to 5 times) until the doors lock/unlock. If that doesn't work, you could have a bum transmitter.

If some doors are not lock/unlocking, chances are bad doorlock acuators.

WONT START.SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES WHEN TRYYING TO START


Anti Theft System - inmobilizer is actovated. Need disarm to start engine. Have you another key and fob? Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect.

Hope help with this.

Back doors do not lock or unlock with key fob or buttons?I have to unlock by pulling up on the lock manually? This is 08 Pontiac G6 Gt


Change the battery in the remote fob. Go to Best Buy or any place that sells watch size or similar batteries.

Kia Rio 1.5 diesel Factory alarm,car horn honking,side indicators flashing,unable to start the car. When I arm the car with the fob and unlock the door with the key then open the door the horn starts...


The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.
