Been meaning to fix my only key fob for ages as the blade holder broke. So I got a replacement case and straight after work tonight decided to make the blade fit in the very tight new holder. Pulled both cases apart to see if layout the same (they weren't), not thinking that the fob would lose its code straight away. Stupid me not realising locked the car on the fob, so I have the car alarm armed and the assembled fob now won't disarm it...
I have the valet key and the plastic key, so my question is, can I get into the car and re-code the existing fob without setting off the alarm? And if I do set of the alarm, will I be able to re-code the key whilst the alarm is going off?
I saw this posted on the Zine, but it looks like the car would have to be unlocked to do this:
- Procedure for re-coding an existing transmitter
- press "lock" or "unlock" button of the remote transmitter
- within 30 seconds, lock and unlock the vehicle using the driver side lock. (this means with the key in the lock)
- now check function of the re-coded remote transmission.
