Re: How to program remote transmitter?
There's no function you can activate to program the remote. Some vehicles do let you do it, this one doesn't. If you have a good working relationship with your dealer, most will charge you little or nothing as it only takes a couple minutes to do. That said, the dealer does have to purchase a vast quantity of tools to work on today's vehicles, most are just sent to the dealer along with the bill for them and they aren't cheap. Charging to program your remote is a way to recoup some of that cost, 59 bucks, yeah I'll agree it's a lot, but call around or see if you can get your dealer to wiggle a little. If you bought the car from that dealer, they should realize something like this can make or break a customer relationship. Did you talk to the sales person or service manager by chance?
