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 these procedures will only give a new or used key the remote locking function. To add another key to your immobiliser will require dealer attention.

Remote Control Programming (1997 ON)

Procedure

1. Switch ignition ON and leave the key to be resynchronised in the ignition.

2. Physically lock the vehicle using a second key in the driver's door lock. If you only have 1 key, lock the car from inside.

3. Using the remote control press the unlock button once, and the horn will sound once.

4. Wait for 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the coding procedure. The remote control will now be programmed.

NOTE : When performing programming on additional remotes the procedure is the same, except you need to press the unlock button 2, 3 or 4 times for each different remote.

For example : If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice with a 1 second interval between each press, repeat for 3 and 4 remotes - do not press 5 times or you will inadvertently erase all remotes (see below).

5. Switch Ignition OFF.

6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.

7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remotes.

8. The ignition must be switched OFF between programming each remote control.

Remote Control Erasing (1997 ON)

Procedure

1. Switch ignition ON and leave a key in the ignition.

2. Physically lock the vehicle using a second key in the driver's door lock. If you only have 1 key, lock the car from inside.

3. Press the remote control unlock button 5 times in 1 second intervals. A short horn will sound.

4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate memory erase.

5. Switch the ignition OFF, all remotes are now erased.
