mine does it so I never lock it. I played with the key, once in a while i could turn it left more then before and that would disable the alarm. I did turn it both ways trying, dont know the proper sequence, but eventually in the unlock position it will work

you need to synch the fob, may not be able to since it's locked down.

key in door, turn to lock, hit lock button. turn to unlock and hit unlock button. test...

Yeah the eka access code is needed. The default code is 1515, good luck. Turn the key once left (or right, try it opposite ways, i forget how to do it) and then right 5 times, and then left once, and then right 5 times again.

Am I a complete nutter if I think that revealing the default code is perhaps not the best to do...

Good to hear the lockout issue was resolved.

Make sure it is actually an overheating issue. Plug an obd scanner into it and get a reading on the coolant temps, they should be 195 to 220F, and really should not go much above 225F. If it goes above 225F, stop driving it and get it repaired. If it stays between those temps, then you have a different problem. I have found that the more electricity mine uses, the "hotter" it gets according to the gauge. I am still trying to track down the loose ground that is causing it :evil: .
