1998 Spider Keyless Entry Remotes?
this is my first ever post on this forum, so i hope someone can advise me.
I own a 1998 Spider that has standard electric central locking that operates when i insert key in door lock and turn. (both doors unlock)
When i purchased the car i only got 1 standard red key (no inbuilt remote buttons). This key maually operates everything from doors to ignition, glove box lock and boot lock.
I have since had a locksmith cut and code me a 2nd key as a spare. All Good.
As i think i understand from reading threads on this forum, there is already a signal receiver built into the overhead light/rear view mirror area of the car.
My question is: Am i able to buy an aftermarket remote for my keyring and have it coded to unlock my doors? so i dont have to use my key in the lock all the time.
I cant see why it is not possible but thought i would ask for some expert advice here on this forum. Any feedback would be great!
ps: had my spider for approx 15 months now and the love affair is just growing stronger and stronger.....once you drive one there's no going back!
