Had this on mine when I bought it (fat V6).Thompatruck1 said:Bought the car, the remote doesn't work, I've changed the batteries which made no difference, i'm pretty sure it's the remote at fault but i've a couple of questions....
If the remote is left without power will it need re-programming?
Can I reprogramme it?
How much for a new one and will it have to be from a main dealer?
What should I check to see if it is/isn't working?
I assume the keylock in the glovebox would have to be on?
Doesn't matter about the switch - that enables the alarm.
I'm guessing you are getting a red LED from the remote when you press it??
If so, check the receiver (inside the rear roof light). Twang it out, then CAREFULLY try and see if it's all in one piece in there. On mine, the small sub-PCB that had the IR receiver photo transistors on it had fallen off the main PCB - bit of a swine to reassemble but once done, it should be fine. Watch out for the little push button that tends to fall out at the worst moment too....
This worked for me at least, and I didn't have to muck about re-programming the remotes to the car (to answer your question, the remotes are fixed code, the receiver learns them).
Hope this helps some.
