Thanks ever so much for finding these crazy voodoo instructions and posting them. This was very well timed. I've just programed a new remote (on the 2nd try) using this write up (after not being able to do it following the factory instructions??) on my '07 2.5i.

I had purchased the car last fall with only one remote and the lock button did not work. So after purchasing a new remote on line. I attempted to program it. Well after hours of frustrating failure (nothing after 10x on/lock), I discovered, here, on another post that apparently the chirp/buzzer had to be functioning in order for the programing to work. Until then I did not know there was a chirp, because mine didn't work. So I left it for the winter, and today once again following this thread I got my chirp working, only to find I still could not get any further in the steps.

Of course now that the remote is working I've turned the chirp off. Just wonder now if I really needed it to be functioning in order to program the remote.

And why the heck does this method work and not the one in the owners manual??

Thanks again
