Jason Thanks too! I was looking at the FSM and was confused by the wording on how to get both key fobs done at the same time and your video spells it out perfectly.
That is an excellent video on how to program your remote FOB`*.

On a separate note of Fob failure, after what I experienced today...
Also sometimes your key FOB may become what I call un synchronized where only the panic button works but the doors wont unlock or trunk fails. This is caused by pushing the buttons too many times while away from the car or even changing the battery can do it.
To re synchronize the FOB simply push and hold both lock & unlock til the lights flash and horn sounds and that is it. Then all the doors trunk works again etc.
I had to get the FOB`* (more like SOB) battery clip re-soldered onto the FOB`* board today using lead solder. The electrical shop did an excellent repair to the FOB and after re-synchronizing it, I got it working again. PITA but done.
