2004 passat door fob led lights up but will not open/lock doors

Answers :

It has either lost its code or it has just enough power to iluminate the led lamp but not to open the doors, pull the remote and key part away from each other then split the remote down the centre to get to the battery, try a battery you will probably find that it will work, seen it loads of times.

We have a 2001 Ford Escape with a small problem. The remote key fob locks the doors and unlocks the doors but the lights don't flash anymore when you lock the door. The horn also won't honk after hitting the button a few times as well. The key fob still works but the lights and horn don't let you know it's locked and armed. It worked before but had a stereo installed and now it won't? Is there a trick to turn this function on and off?


I think you need to reprogram the module, you deleted the horn chirp and light flash confirmation. he dealer can reprogram for you.\015\012\015\012\015\012Customer Preference Items \015\012\015\012NOTE: If using the WDS, sel ... 2005 Ford Escape

2004 Ford Taurus. Installed after market Prestige starter. model: APS-620N. Door lock and unlock work. Trunk works. Parking light do NOT light up when programming or locking/unlocking doors. Not receiving tach signal. Unable to start car with remote fob. When I try to start car with fob, I hear ticking presumably from the parking light flasher relay. Counts 7 times which according to diags. Says tach not learned. Have rechecked tach connections several times. Thanks.


If this problem started just by changing the starter, either there is a wire unhooked or somehow switched, I do not think the starter would cause that as long as it was the right starter. It should have been identical to the old starter. ... 2004 Ford Taurus

Previously I had a key fob that worked and bought a new key fro the dealership about 5 months ago. I went to program the new key fob and it didn't take. I then tried the old key fob and that didn't take as well. Meanwhile recently my husban took the door panel off and found several broken wire and fixed them. In doing so my interior lights work the way they used to not having to shut the lights off before locking the door manually. I am able to lock the car with the keyless entry but not able t

I want to add in some mirror mounted LED lights, like the newer vehicles (the lighted arrows in the mirrors). I've got the led's I want, now I need to know which wire to tap in to (at the door wiring harness) for the blinker on the apporiate side. On a 2000 Expedition. If the blinker lead is not available at the door harness, then my wires are long enough to reach the other side of the vehicle.


The easiest spot to tap into would be up at the front turn signal trying to find the correct wire in the factory harness where all the wires are together is going to be really tough to do if you pull the front turn signal out and use a meter it shoul ... 2000 Ford Expedition

When opening or closing the driver door the interior lights do not work about 90% of the time. They do light up when the car is unlocked using the fob, but no other time. Also, the "idiot" beep that the lights are on, turn signal is on, etc when I get out of the car does not sound. It looks like the car does not know if the driver door is open. Where is the sensor that tells the car the door is open?
