Hello and Welcome..

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise you..

Can you give me some background to this... was it ok last time you used it etc?

Will the doors unlock / lock using the remote fob?

Has the car battery gone flat etc?

Are you getting a solid (on) LED in the middle of the dash?

The more you can tell me, the better I can help you ...

lights are to bright for bat to be flat

an no its not a horn sound its a hi pitched ne nor type of sound lol

Hi again..

Ok - the lights can be bright and the battery down - but, this is not the issue here- What is odd, is why its suddenly gone like it has and thats what Im trying to get to....

This is not going to be a fuel cut off issue no.. but what happens here is - normally the fob is used... If and when the fob fails, the system can be accessed using what is called an EKA code to override the alarm and immobiliser - and then you can use the car / it will start etc without the fob.

It only all goes wrong again when the car battery faults -or, drops too low and it loses the EKA circuit - so then the answer is to have a new fob programmed to the car to use it again..

The only other way, is to obtain and use the EKA code..unless you have it already - if you have it you can enter it per the instructions in the Owners Manual ( the EKA code is usually on a card / or paper with your car docs ) - its a 4 digit code.

I have to say though that often, entering the EKA code is problematic and often wont work - but it has to be tried as the only other way is to have a new fob and have it programmed to the car....

Im sorry its not exactly good news but those are the ways forward on this one now..

Im very pleased to have helped you -let me know if you need anything more -
