Is it difficult to program a Keyless Entry Remote?
Not at all. Some of these procedures have quite a few steps but the best method for programming is to just take them one at a time, instead of trying to memorize the entire procedure all at once.
How many Remotes can I program to my vehicle? Won't my old ones be erased?
Most Manufacturers allow for up to 4 remotes per vehicle. Some vehicles will require all the Remotes to be present while programming but your old remotes can be reprogrammed at that time.
The Dealer said I can't program my remote myself, I have to use their scan tool?
Yes, this sometimes is the case. Mostly GM cars, Chrysler, Hyundai, Kias and newer Proximity (Smart) Keys need a scan tool to program. This is not a complete list by any means but the good news is that just about every other vehicle make has an on board procedure.
