Hello everybody.

Firstly, I must apologise to all those who have purchased these instructions from me over the past few months.

From May this year, Ebay revised their Downloadable Media Policy & decided to ban all digitally delivered items. This meant that the instructions that I have been successfully emailing to people were now banned from being delivered by email. I could have elected to print each set out & post them to buyers, but to be perfectly honest this would be both time consuming & an unnecessary use of resources (printer ink, paper, envelopes etc.) so I decided to simply stop listing in order to be a good boy & comply with the policies.

Unfortunately, not all members are as good at sticking to the rules as myself & several are still listing on a nudge, nudge, wink, wink, "I won’t actually state that I email the instructions even though I do" basis. This guide is dedicated to these members.

It would seem that the only way to make sure everybody sticks to the rules is to make sure that the information is made available to all, so rather than paying for the instructions to be emailed, here they are for free:

Please note that new & secondhand fobs CANNOT be programmed to another car without dealer attention!

It may sometimes be necessary to squeeze the bottom of your remote fob tightly when using as it is common for these remotes to have a bad battery connection.

Procedure

The procedure for manually coding the single button plips on a Rover Metro with 3AS is:

1. System must be disarmed first, turn the ignition on and then off within 3 seconds.

1. Open the tailgate and leave it open

2. Again, turn the ignition on and then off within 3 seconds.

3. If the procedure has been done correctly, the horn will sound briefly and the alarm LED will come on and stay on.

4. Press the button of the first plip to be coded, the fob LED will come on, go off and come back on again. If the 3AS unit accepts that plip, the alarm LED will go off briefly and come back on.

5. Repeat this last procedure to code another plip, the maximum allowed is 2.

6. Exit the learning mode by turning the ignition back on.
