you probably need to do the resistor in the key bypass, unless you want to keep the security then we can help you fix it but buying the fob is not going to help you
We tried the posted instructions for reprogramming the resistor value in the new switch, but after more than two hours of trying it every 10 minutes and 10 seconds, it didn't work. So, we just put the original switch back in since I had to leave to pick up my wife at the bus station and go to work myself.
Would be willing to try and do the clean and replace the grease in the original switch fix, but I am probably not that talented to open the switch without breaking it, and would then have a car which didn't start at all.
Was hoping that buying the remote would solve my problem along with giving my wife and daughter some extra security when using the car at night.
Thanks for the info and help on the remote and at least I have $75 dollars which i can spend on a taxi when and if we need one.
