What would you like to do?
This is a standard feature of the Smart, if you leave the car unlocked for more than a few minutes the ignition locks up and a flashing key apears. Just remove the key and press central lock to reset.

Why does your car starts beeping like the doors are open for about 2 continuous minutes when you turn the car on you cannot lock the the car with the control either?
perhaps the car thinks the door is still open, check the sensors in the doors and make sure they're not stuck. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction…=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info This guy doesn't know Jetta's, at least the new ones because there is not "button" for the door sensor. Im having the same problem and have isolated it to the locking part of the door where the body u-shaped metal part goes into the door lock receiving part. Im not a mechanic so please spare the lingo. If you have priced this repair let me know? Thanksnic
On your 1993 Toyota Camry the alram goes off and you cannot disable it with your remote The cars refuse to start now What can you do?
Well I take it that this is an aftermarket alarm system. If you do not plan on using the alarm anymore and just want your vehicle to start then go under the dash and loc…ate the wires comming out of the ignition cylinder. Then find a black wire with a white stripe and follow it until it gets cut and taped into the aftermarket alarm. Now cut away the aftermarket alarm wires and attach the two ends of the black/white wire back up together again
S550 Mercedes You press the remote to open but the lights come on but the door will not unlock you use the mechanical key to open the door you cannot lock the car with the remote?
Answer The door lock module/solenoid in the driver's door is bad. You will need to remove the door panel to get to it. Make sure you have a fresh battery… in your keyfob just to make sure it isn't sending a strong enough signal to the locking mechanism but enough to trigger the interior light.
Answer Yes, Smart cars do need keys im not sure about in the futur but now they do for sure.
Quote from the Related Link: "Both cannot and can not are acceptable spellings, but the first is much more usual. You would use can not when the 'not' forms part of another c…onstruction such as 'not only'."
I am having this same problem. I will give a definitive answer once I've had my car looked at but I'm confident that the problem lies within either the starter or the so…lenoid. Strangely enough, if I bang the starter and solenoid with a hammer a few times the car will start right up. I think the gear inside the starter is jamming and the hammer helps to free it up.

How do I open a locked 05 Mercedes C230 glove compartment for which i have remote that starts the car and locks the doors fits the ignition but cannot fit in the glove box key hole n purchased used?
In a mercedes, usually the glove box key is located hidden within the bigger remote key of the car. Look for this key on the top/back of the remote, it's the only metal part o…n the key, it'll have a small sliding latch to release the key. If you don't have this key, you must get one from the dealer. They can likely cut you a new one just from the VIN number, but you might have to go to the dealer and have them either cut you a new key or install a new glove box latch and give you a new key system. Note that this key would've also likely manually opened your doors and trunk in the event your remote key didnt work...so it's a good thing to have the original on if you can.
It can, but the vernier is capable of a more accurate reading.
Voltage between points A and B creates the tendency for current to move. While you have the voltage you need, your little dry cells can't generate enough current through the m…otor to overcome the resistance of the engine. They just don't have enough juice stored in them.
Depends on the vehicle, some cars/trucks have ingntion/key locks( example mid 90's GMC pickups), a buttom/tab needs to be pressed. If it is not a vehicle like this, the igniti…on lock/cylinder is going bad/needs replacing.
Nope - every mobile phone can be tracked by its network ! The network needs to know its physical location - in order to route calls to it !
