I have a used remote with the same button configurations (including remote start) and was wondering if it was possible to reset or overwrite that key fob to my vehicle. I have a single remote currently programmed to the car
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. You could reprogram a key fob to a different vehicle as long as the key is the same for the vehicle. In this case, if the key can go into the doors and unlock them, then you would need to do the following:
If the engine starts up after these steps, then the key fob is successfully reprogrammed to your vehicle. If the key is not starting up the engine or locking the doors, then the key may be different all together and you would need to get a new key. If you need further assistance with your keyless entry system, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
