    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    Dont know how much interest people have in doing this but I just bought some upgraded fobs (source sold me two for much less than $600/set the dealership wanted (WTF!!!) and I was able to code them myself for the car. I can provide the instructions and connect you with the guy who is out of Tulsa if you want a new set. Apparently our cars will do allow you to program up to 4 key fobs total so I'm keeping my old set live just incase for emergencies. Its nice not having to cary both the key and fob.... (it really is the little things right?)

    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    Guy wanted $75/fob. Told me he'd cut $10 off the price if I'd send him the info on programming it once I had it nailed down. I'll post it below for you guys as well. Was hoping to get him down to $50 each as a special for our community but thus far he's ignoring that part of my follow-up emails.

    You can reach him via RemoteKeyFob@gmail.com
    I dont have the buisness card handy or I'd give you the rest of his info...Anyhow it was worth it not to have to cary around my fob and key. Now I just have the fob with hidden key and all of 4 of the fobs I have work fine as backups in case the worst happens and I loose or break one of these things.

    1. Vehicle must be off
    2. Have the recognized transmitter and the new unrecognized transmitters with you.
    3. Insert the vehicle key into the key lock cylider located on the outside of the drivers door.
    4. Turn the key to the unlock position 5x within 5 seconds.
    5. The drivers information center will display "Ready for Fob #X" (can program up to 4 total)
    6. Place the new unrecognized transmitter into the transmitter pocket with the transmitter buttons facing the front of the vehicle. (The transmitter pocket is inside the center console storage area between the front seats)
    7. Once the transmitter is programmed, a beep will sound. The DIC will display "Ready for #X
    8. Remove the newly programmed fob and press the unlock button on the remote two times.
    9. Test the remote.

    After that all I had to do was get the blank cut by a locksmith vs. the local hardware store since it doesn't fit like the standard automatic key machines they use at Home Depot/Ace etc..

    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    Just emailed him as well did he send you a blank and the fob for $75

    Does the passive locking and unlocking work with updated fob ?

    All functions work ie remote start trunk ?

    I tried to program the ones I have and it was just stuck at ready for fob 3 for a couple minutes so I am going to assume the are not programable I think they are from newer years.

    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    Yes, everything works. He sold it to me for $65 but his price was $75. He discounted it 10 bucks cause he wasn't sure it could be programmed to work. I told him people on the forum said it could be and the discount was to confirm and send him the instructions.

    ----------

    are the ones you have for the STS vs. DTS or SRX? Those two apparently wont work. The one he sent me had a sticker on it saying 418 (guessing it was his reference code for the correct style).

    looks to be right one think the main things is that there is a hidden sliding key for our cars. Mine do not have them therefore do not work you can always return with that company if it dosent work.

    Tech 2 isn't needed -- just 30 minutes of your time and start the fob learning procedure in the manual (insert key in door, turn 5 times, etc)

    *The key is not having any of the old fobs near the vehicle when you program your 08+ ones.

    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    Sorry guys, been away from the forum for a while. Hope everyone is finding the information usefull. Sorry the advertised connection isn't returning calls/emails. I met him at the goodguys show. Hopefully in the future he will be more responsibe. I dont know about you guys but I feel better about doing buisness in person than on the internet and it was nice to see the equipment before dropping the dollars.

    Re: These Key Fobs kinda blow

    So i bought the key fob from the above mentioned vendor on ebay heres the link again http://www.ebay.com/itm/190646844716...84.m1497.l2649

    I ordered it on a Thursday received the shipment on Saturday.. nicely packed. This is a brand new key fob with a blank. I programmed it as 3rd fob on my car .. took 1 minute altogether..works perfectly fine ..car opens up fine .. starts ..trunk opens up fine ..tried remote start ..lights flash but car doesn't start .. which means the fob works fine but being the third fob the car wont type. All this implies that this remote is perfectly fine for our cars...If anybody wants to buy one this is a great source . I am planning to erase all fobs and reprogram this as first fob .. btw the number of the fob is also 1 ..if that matters to anyone.
