I was in the store the other day & the alarm went off on my 97 acura tl 3.2 . When I came out the store everything had died out including the battery which was already weak. I put a new battery in and car still wont start - it won't turn over. I towed car to my mechanic and he thinks the alarm may have disabled the car . He has tried to reset alarm by turning key (locking & unlocking ) in drivers and passengers door but car still wont start . He says theres no juice going to the starter .

I have a 96 Nissan Maxima. The locks on the doors keep locking and unlocking. The only way to get in the car is to put the key in the door and with the key still turned open the door. If the car is running with any of the doors open the locks are locking and unlocking until the door is shut. How do I fix something like that? I unplugged the battery for a minute to see if that would help, but it didnt.

I have 05 s-type and my key works to lock the car and unlock the car when I get out but about 20 minutes later the key pad will not unlock the car so I have to put the key in the door and the alarm goes off. So every time I lock my door and its more than 20 or 30 minutes my alarm goes off to get back in the car. Annoying. I wonder if someone reset the computer or if my key is not set properly or if I got a new key if this would solve the problem


When you use the key to unlock the car you must put the key in the ignition immediately, this should stop the alarm sounding - if it does not you have an alarm module fault - get it checked at dealers.\015\012\015\012good luck - hope this helps ... 2005 Jaguar S-Type

Most of the time the power door locks on my 1995 993 Porsche do not automatically unlock when a door is opened from the inside. They will occasionally unlock after several seconds delay. As a result, the doors can be opened to exit the car without the doors actually being unlocked. I accidentally locked my keys inside the car when buying gas and had to call AAA to open the door. The console switch and the key will lock/unlock the doors.


Not sure here ,ok to be honest i dont know but the first thing i would do is to remove the door panels and give all the linkage a good oil with a oil can with engine oil in it ,where the solonoid is that operates the door lock for the central locking ... 1995 Porsche 911
