Bought from mykeyless.

Worked perfectly with a 2 minute programming.

Short pins 4 and 8 on access port for the duration of programming.
Turn key to on but do not start, locks will cycle.
On new remote press unlock and lock and hold until locks cycle.

Success. yay

Yep, pretty simple. Got 2 new ones for my car last summer, from a different seller.

I don't even have a keyless. The stupid lady who owned my car before me lost BOTH sets, and a full set of keys.

God, the condition my car was in when I got it. Looked great, but the paint felt like sandpaper - claybar was REALLY hard work to remove that crap. And scratches all over the top of the car from setting some big-ass purse there. Not to mention the whiskey dents all over the rear bumper.

At least she didn't drive it very often.

On my car it is above the brake pedal with a sliding cover. Stick your head on the carpet and look up.

It looks very similar to a VGA cable, which is that fat cable with the screws in it that connect your monitor to your computer.

It says something weird like "direct access port" on the instructions, so I took out the screws in my dash and dropped it down, only to find nothing.

oops

Then I figured out what they were talking about.

You need to connect the two pins together with a paperclip. Didn't he send you the instructions on how to do it?

I don't remember the specifics, but a paper clip is involved, and you shove it into two of the pins on the OBD II port discussed earlier in this thread. Once those two pins are connected, then it's in program mode.

You could e-mail ebay seller "mykeyless" and ask him to e-mail you the directions.

I tried programming my remote and when i put two pins together my dash guages and power locks wouldn't work.... It was just a fuse luckily... i then took it to the dealer paid 40 bucks and waited an hour or two and was done with it.

For sure I connected the two together with paper clips.
I may be a dumbo so please again tell me where 4 and 8 are.
I thought I knew.
I had this thing hooked up to the tech 2 from the dealer and they couldn't put it into program mode.

Hm... I distinctly remember this being very simple. There's no WAY I would pay the dealer any money for this simple procedure.

Seriously, try and e-mail that "mykeyless" guy. He has pictures and good directions, maybe he'll e-mail them to you.

He may have other problems since the dealer wasn't able to help either. I also had no problems programming 2 new Ebay remotes last year.

Good point.

Samuel - where did you get your remote from? Did it have instructions with it? I'm just curious.

My friend got it for me off of E-Bay. Yes. Instructions came with it. The exact same directions were on the Mitchell discs. I am sure I followed them. I do not find any metal connector on what is supposed to be the #4 slot.
In any case I have the wiring diagram showing me which wires are to program. When I connect them I am not getting any cycle from the door locks indicating I am in program mode.
I did not pay for dealer service but a friend of mine was nice enough to help me out with the Tech 2. This should have been able to engage the program mode. I believe the remote I bought is fine.
Thank you all for your help so far.
