    Does anyone know how to reprogram the factory key fob on a 2003 Tib after
    replacing the fob battery. I have 2 that are getting flaky after 4 years.

    I shouldn't even be getting into this, but I thought the programming was in
    the receiver (in the car). The transmission frequency of the fob won't
    change just because of a new battery.

    Of course, I could be wrong!

  3. I think you are correct from what I've read.
    Faulty signal code registration

    Ensure normal door opening/closing by using the door key and register
    the code again

    1. To store transmitter code, first connect the hi-scan (pro) to the Data
    Link Connector (DLC) in driver side crash pad lower panel.
    2.. Turn the power on hi-scan (pro) with the ignition switch ON.
    3.. Select the vehicle model on hi-scan (pro).
    4.. After selecting "CODE SAVING" menu then button "ENTER" key.
    5.. Proceed as follow steps and then code saving is completed.
    1.. Press [ENTER] key, if you are ready.
    2.. Press the transmitter [LOCK] button above 1 second.
    3.. If you save transmitter one more, press other transmitter [LOCK]
    button above 1 second.
    4.. Turn the hi-scan (pro) off, and check the keyless entry system

    Hmmm- perhaps what I what I should have asked for is to resync the fob with
    the car. I found some instructions for that on the hmaservice site. But
    thanks for the info!
