    this one really needs to be documented in a FAQ.. together with facelift headlight installation, and all those other searchable queries.

    do the mods or admin have any plans for improvement of this site, such as the creation and maintenance of more FAQ's?

    NOTE: max of 4 keys can be programmed (one at a time).

    memory positions of existing keys can be identified using diagnostic equipment
    If Diagnostic equipment available:
    locate vacant memory position for new key
    locate memory position for key to be replaced
    carry out programming procedure for this key only
    if diagnostic equipment not available: Obtain and reprogram all keys

    NOTE: Existing key memory positions will be overwritten

    switch ignition ON, Use key not fitted with remote control
    Manually lock driver's door using key.

    Complete the following within 30 seconds:

    Within 5 seconds press unlock button on first key once (programs memory positions 1)
    Indicator lamps flash once to indicate signal received.
    Wait 5 seconds.
    Press unlock button once to confirm programming.

    To program remaining keys into memory positions 2,3 and 4. Carry out the complete procedure below for each key:

    Twice for memory position 2 (2nd key).
    Three times for memory position 3 (3rd key)
    Four times for memory position 4 (4th key)
    Indicator lamps flash once every time unlock button is pressed to indicate signal is received,
    Wait 5 seconds.
    Press Unlock button once to confirm programming.
    Vehicle unlocks. Programming mode deactivated.
    Switch ignition OFF, Remove key.

    NOTE: Ignition MUST be switched OFF between each key programming procedure.

    Memory erase procedure

    When
