I checked some fuses to make sure that the box was getting power. I even disconnected the battery to make sure the car wasn't in valet mode. Also I know the remote works to some extent, because the light lights up when I push a button. I can't get the car into programming mode though no matter what I do. So I'm stumped and would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks.
Does the car now have, or did it previously have, a turbo timer? A common modification with TT's to allow the alarm to arm with the timer counting down, is to cut the wire that senses the key in the ignition. This will prevent you from being able to program any new remotes unless that wire is reconnected.
