Hello, my name is***** you tell me what the vehicle does when you try starting it? Is the engine cranking over or does it act like a dead battery?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Dead battery but lights come on, interior too, no radio though

It says no key, I changed the fob battery
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 9 months ago.

If it says no key and if the FOB has a good battery then either the FOB itself has failed or the receiver is not picking up its signal. Do you have an extra FOB

It's not programmed
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 9 months ago.

Then that may be the issue. When this module is installed it needs to be programmed to the vehicle in order for it to work.
