I have a 1996 Saab Turbo. The security system will only activate using the remote, but not with the key in the driver's door. The remote does not seem to work consistently and I'm therefore relying on the key to lock the car. Locking in this manner does not seem to activate the security system. Should the key also arm the system like the remote does? I've not owned the car very long.

I just bought a 2005 Grand Prix. There is a key fob for a remote starter. The sales person told me that it was probably de-activated.

I'm wondering if I can just plug this back up & the remote starter will work...but I don't know where to plug it. The key fob has a FCC# NAHAS2402 and a web address of www.autostart.ca. I w

Hyundai accent alarm doesnot activate. I had an accident recently. I crashed into another car from my front left side. After repair, my car gets locked via remote, but alarm does not activate. The mechanic said maybe the staff unplugged a fuse, but they are not sure. Is it possible whether they forgot to install the plastic piece on the hood activating the alarm? (When the hood closes it touches a button connected to the alarm system) Any different solutions? Thanks..
