Key / Remote - Tech

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

Up until the 987's and 997's Key/Remote programming has not been an issue.

- Scenario -

Order new key with new remote - have ipas codes. All from dealer.

Program everything as per onscreen instruction while also having a clean power source hooked up to battery. As well as activating 4 way flashers..

Everything works great except the new remotes never sync? the pill syncs because the car will start and run...

Take to dealer they say remote is defective (which they sold me three times now), and program with another that they have instock.

3rd try now, with plenty of spare brand new remotes that are apparently defective.

Time for me to give up on keys it seems, unless im missing some important step?

I added a key to my nephew's '05 997C2S. It was a while ago, so I don't recall the detail, but it took two or three attempts. First, you do it with the ignition off, but with the hazard warning lights flashing, which activates the CAN bus. I think the thing you have to get right is pressing the remote button at the right time - ie quickly after getting the instruction.
