    just tried using the user guide from Ross-tech but no luck.

    went into (35) cent lock (10) adaptation and in the value was zero. so in new value i entered 1 - test - save but this did not code the key.

    am i doing something wrong here?

    please advise thanks

    once you open adaption you need to enter channel 01 and press read.

    It should then show you the number of remotes currently programmed

    You then nudge the new value up to 1 or however many keys you have, press test and ensure the test value says 1, then press save.

    Then within 15 seconds you need to press the unlock button on the remote.

    It also says that on some cars you'll need to clear the existing programming, by storing the value 0 first.

    when testing the key do i need to take the key out of the ignition and then press the unlock buttom.

    i've put in 1 but then the test button becomes greyed out. will try again tomorrow by removing all codes and re-coding.

    I find on mine that i need to press the up/down buttons to change the values rather they typing them in.

    Also you need to keep the key in the ignition. If you take it out, you'll cut power to the ECU. Just press the button without touching the key.
