It’s ‘Tech Tuesday’ , when we publish our weekly technical guide. This week we’re looking at problems with ‘Keyless cars’. If you have your Hyundai ix35 long enough, there’s a chance you’ll be locked out with Keyless Car Key problems.
Lets talk about why this might happen.
There are a few reasons why you may find yourself locked out with Keyless Car Key problems, so lets have a look.
Flat Battery on the Car leaves you Locked out with Keyless Car Key
Remember the olden days when the ice was thick on the windscreen? A chorus of cars struggling to start would fill the neighbourhood. This doesn’t happen these days. The cars won’t turnover once the battery drops to a certain level, they just sit and won’t even crank.
However there are still plenty of cars with flat batteries, leaving owners locked out with Keyless Car Key problems.
In normal use, the car detects you walking up to the car, then unlocks automatically.
However, if the car battery is dead, it won’t unlock. The car is asleep, deaf to you and your keyless car key.
So when this happens, you’ll need to know how to unlock the car using the emergency key blade.
Flat Keyless Car Key Battery
This is obvious, but it needs thinking about.
You get a warning on your dashboard when the key battery is low. We know everyone is busy and you may not have time to get it changed. Did you know you can do it yourself?
However, if you leave it too long before you change the key battery, you’ll be locked out with keyless car key drama, so you’ll need to know how to use the emergency key blade. Click here for instructions on how to use the blade.
Faulty Keyless Car Key
So you may be to blame for a low battery ( don’t be too hard on yourself) but you can’t help it when the key goes wrong. This still leaves you locked out with Keyless Car Key.
Faulty car keys are leading to owners getting locked with keyless car key problems. When the key stops giving off the special keyless signal, then the car won’t recognise it.
This could be because of several reasons such as the key being dropped and damaged, or getting wet. Water and electronics don’t mix well. Here’s advice if the key gets wet.
Opening the Car with the Emergency Blade
When you find yourself locked out with Keyless Car Key, you need to remove the emergency key blade from the remote. Just press the small silver button.
Next, pull the blade away from the remote
Place the blade into the door lock
Then turn to the rear of the car, anti-clockwise.
Then the door will open, don’t worry if there is a bit of noise from the alarm!
You can still start the car if you have these problems, just click here for our guide
