Help with alarm on 456m - car won't start, key stuck in ignition, door won't shut!
A few days ago I changed the batteries in my key fobs, which I thought was sensible, but I'm wondering if it's resulted in this major issue that I have. Or perhaps it's something else entirely different.
Basically, when I tried to unlock the car (1999 456m GTA), there was no response from the alarm system. After one press of the key fob, I tired the door - at first nothing, then the alarm went off. The first few times I tried this the alarm went off only briefly, and then stopped. It was about the third time that the alarm went off for longer - I left my apartment building garage to go get the master fob, and by the time I came back, the alarm had stopped.
I used the key on the drivers door, and that opened it, but when I put the key in the ignition, there was no response from the car. I seemed to hear a clicking sound from the inside back passenger side of the car, though I'm not sure what that was.
The driver's door wouldn't close properly, and even worse, the key wouldn't come out of the ignition!
I then tried to "manually" unlock the car by using the code. I tried this three times, but nothing changed. It's certainly possible I wasn't doing the unlocking method correctly, but I did my best to use instructions posted previously by Terry.
Any help would be hugely appreciated - as of right now the car is unlocked with the key in the ignition in a semi-public garage, which is rather concerning. Admittedly if I can't get the car started, I don't imagine a random person walking by could, but it's still a worry!
Thank you for any guidance,
