Nothing. It could work exactly the same as a keyed ignition, in which case your starter motor would engage, but manufacturers (and I think this is true for all) have added a simple piece of logic which only engages the starter if the engine is not already running. This would be the ideal solution for keyed ignition as well, but it has only been in ...

You have a flat battery - use either a charger or a jump-start from another car (there are plenty of questions on here and guides elsewhere as to how to jump start) to charge the battery.

Here's a good reference for the problem you seem to be having: Program Spare Key FOB The vehicle must be OFF. Open the rear compartment. Place a known key fob within the interior of the vehicle. At the rear of the vehicle insert the vehicle key in the rear compartment lock cylinder located in the lower left and cycle the key 5 times within 5 ...

Older Honda keyfobs have a US quarter sized circle on the back with a groove in it. Stick a quarter (or your equivalently sized currency) in the groove and use it like a screwdriver. It will probably have an arrow on it, but if not anti-clockwise is the correct way to turn it. It will turn about ΒΌ of the way around and then you can pop it out (slap it ...

All the fobs I have had contain a small watch battery. They seem to last longer than I keep the car. I have had them last 7 or 8 years.

I believe that it requires a scan tool. This link is for a 2005 Cobalt, but it should be the same as a 2006. Also, according to eHow: Some vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Cobalt, Pontiac G6 and Chevrolet Malibu, do not have programmable remote systems.

You need specialized equipment to break the encryption. The equipment will cost more than simply taking it to a dealer or remote and alarm specialist and having them do it. It's not an overly complicated job, but the equipment makes it infeasible.

The contacts on your key fob could be loose or corroded, preventing good contact with your battery. Most likely, it is corrosion on the terminals inside the battery tray. You can clean that out by using a pencil eraser or some fine Emory cloth on the Positive (+) and Negative (-) terminals. Sometimes, the metal tab that keeps the battery in electrical ...

Looking online, the only difference I see as to what you are doing and what is suggested is to turn the key eight times within 10 seconds. It may be you are not getting all of the key turns in within the allotted time. For the entire sequence, the following steps are applicable (so others know when looking): Have all transmitters available before starting, ...

Early keyless ignitions vary by manufacturer, but most don't just let you turn the car off. Typically it's a 3-5 second hold. All the OEM keyless ignition buttons are software controlled, they aren't directly connected to the starter. Due to recent "unintended acceleration" events and hoo-haa, a standard "3 second hold" has become the norm. I think even a ...

If you just push it, nothing. It would be rather hazardous if you could find yourself without engine power just by bumping a button. If you hold it down for some time (e.g. 3 seconds on a Lexus (pg 117)), it'll shut off the engine, same as turning the key to off on a conventional ignition.

Please also note that the entry code cannot be reprogrammed. It is more-or-less burned into the module. This is true of all fords. This module is called a GEM or RAP, depending on your model and vintage. GEM - Generic Electronics Module. RAP - Remote AntiTheft Personality If you wish to change the code, you have to replace this module to do so.

Ford has the code in a few different places depending on year and model, but I think for a 2004 F150, it is on the back wall behind the drivers seat. They also sometimes write it out on the lock module itself. Hope that helps a little.

If you want to find the code but cannot find any documentation of it, if you take it to your local Ford dealer they can hook up their computer to it to let you know what the code is. Unfortunatly it has to be the Ford computer system so even if you have an after market one it will not work.

Ford's factory 5-button keypad systems have a factory code, which is always active, and also can be programmed with a personal code. The factory code is on the "owner's wallet card" and is also printed on the computer module. In the '01-02 Expedition, the computer module is buried up in the dash behind the radio, though people claim you can read it with a ...
