Recommended Posts

Hello people!  

 

  ok my problem started last sunday i went to turn on the car and i got no key found message. so i went and got new battery for the remote but that did nothing.  i disconected the negative from the battery and boom! started working fine.

 

the next day same issue did it again and boom it worked.

 

3rd day car wont start  keypad on the door dont light up . trunk wont open . interior light dont turn on. it wont lock/unlock the door. and car dont turn on.

 

radio turns on and the light on the dash stay on 

 

i tried jumper cables. i dont know what to do  im out of warranty.  sorry for bad english.

 

i paid a so call electric mecanic to come look at it. and he said is the key fob..(why it worked when i disconected the battery) i know my only choice is bring it to the dealer its gonna cost me tooooooo much i bet  :cry:

Is there something that changed where you park your car? New security system....could be interference causing the key fob not to work

 

It almost sounds like your battery is going, If you try jumping a car with an internally shorted battery, it may not start. Try temporarily subbing in another battery and starting the car, if that works get a new battery.

There's a TSB for some 2013 MKZs exhibiting these symptoms. This might apply to your car. 

 

 Note that although this is a TSB, since you're out of warranty, you'll have to pay out of pocket.  It is, however, only .3 hr. of labor.  

 

Again, there's no gurantee that this is your problem.   The dealer can check Ford OASIS to see if your car is included in the affected vehicles and can run a diagnostic to see if you have the latest calibration.
