: Just received and programmed my new fob from dealership

11-10-10, 01:23 AM
we needed a spare, so had the key cut and fob mailed to me from my dealership which is a 2 hour drive away. they sent me directions to program it for my Sport Turbo (not the keyless doors). the directions required that we already had one working fob.

so i followed the directions, and although it took 2x and didn't play out exactly as the directions inferred it would to a "T", everything wound up working just fine and all is well. i've read both sides in discussions here of whether or not one could program the fob yourself or that it can only be done at the dealership; i'm here to officially say that at least for this model entry and with another existing fob, there is NO REASON this couldn't be done at home by anyone.

That's good to hear. I'll keep this in mind in the event I ever need a replacement.
