Ungo (Clarion) Car Alarm System Remote Transmitters

Remotes Unlimited recently received an inquiry from a customer needing to replace his Ungo transmitter SAA477U with FCC ID EZSDEI477T. Car alarm systems that use that 2-way transmitter also can use Ungo 1-way companion remote SAA474U with FCC ID EZSDEI474V. Unfortunately, Ungo went out of business years ago and remotes for their systems are no longer being manufactured. Remotes Unlimited is out of stock of both SAA477U and SAA474U. We do still have remaining stock for a few different Ungo remotes, but most Ungo transmitters are very hard to locate at this point.

Replacement Remote Key Fob for 1999 Nissan Pathfinder

We recently were asked about a replacement remote for a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder. This vehicle used two different factory keyless entry systems. The remotes for these systems are not interchangeable. Some Pathfinders used our remote 861-1861 with FCC ID KBRASTU09. The other used our transmitter 525-1525 with FCC ID KOBUTA3T.

If you have an original remote that worked with the vehicle, you can choose the part that matches the FCC ID on your original remote. If not, I suggest you call us and provide your VIN so we can determine which transmitter you need. You can reach tech support by contacting 281-820-0300 and choosing option 3.

Both of these factory keyless entry systems can be programmed by a user to accept a new keyfob. Programming instructions and free phone tech support are included with purchase.

Please note that we have B-grade remotes (previously owned) transmitters available for both of these key fobs at much lower prices than the new parts. They do not show on our website, so you will need to call us if you want to buy a B-grade remote.

1997-2000 Chevy Corvette Replacement Remote Control

The original factory keyless entry remote used on 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 model-year Corvettes is a 4-button remote with FCC ID ABO0216T. However, this part was discontinued by GM years ago. It is Remotes Unlimited part number 129-1129. We sell a newer replacement transmitter from GM for $119.00 that has a different FCC ID but will work for the original key fob. That is our part number 088-6240. The only functional difference is that the newer remote does not have a “PASSIVE” switch on the back.

You can see both parts at the following link:
1998 Chevy Corvette Remote Key Fob

The factory keyless entry system in 1997-2000 Corvettes is user programmable for adding a new remote. Programming instructions and free phone tech support are provided with purchase.

CompuStar 1-button remote start transmitters with FCC ID VA5JR760AM433

CompuStar has marketed many add-on remote start systems that use a 1-button remote transmitter with FCC ID VA5JR760AM433. There are many styles and part numbers associated with these key fobs. They were used on systems marketed under the CompuStar, Arctic Start, FTX and NuStart brands.

The best way to make sure you buy the correct replacement remote for your system is to match the part number from the sticker on the back of your old remote. These part numbers include 1BR-AM, 1BAMR, 1BR-SH, 1WR1R-AM, and variants of these that put an abbreviation of the system brand in front of these basic identifiers – such as AR1WR1R-AM for the Arctic Start branded version of the 1WR1R-AM remote.

You can see most of these parts by searching the Remotes Unlimited website using the FCC ID number. Or simply go to the following link:
CompuStar remotes with FCC ID VA5JR760AM433

The systems that use these remotes are easily programmed to accept an additional remote. When you buy a remote from Remotes Unlimited, programming instructions and free phone tech support are included.

Buying a Replacement Remote Key Fob for Your Factory Keyless Entry or Add-on Alarm or Remote Start System

Many consumers struggle with the challenge of buying a replacement automotive remote control. If their vehicle has a factory keyless entry system and no add-on system has ever been added, then searching by the make model and year of the vehicle usually leads to an acceptable result but not always. There are split years, when more than one system was used on a vehicle and they use non-compatible remote key fobs.

A better way to shop for a replacement remote is to buy a transmitter that matches the one you have in hand for reference and that you know worked with your vehicle. Most remotes have an FCC ID on the back. By law, all radio-frequency transmitters are supposed to have this identifier on the outside of the remote. However, some manufacturers put it inside the case or printed in the key channel of a smart key or flip key in text so small you may need a magnifying glass to see it. Searching by the FCC ID is an excellent way to shop for most remotes. The following link from our website provides a fairly comprehensive list of automotive remote FCC IDs: FCC ID List for Automotive Remote Transmitters

Even an FCC search has its limits. In some cases you have to know the circuit board of your remote or the model-year of your vehicle. In other cases, automotive manufacturers have made buying a remote so complicated that you have to provide a VIN (vehicle identification number).

The single best way to search for a remote transmitter is by the original equipment (OE) manufacturer’s part number. In some cases, this number is also provided on the back or inside of a key fob. If it is not and you know that your system is the factory-installed keyless entry system, you can always call a dealership, provide your VIN, and ask them to tell you the correct replacement part number for your remote. If you buy a replacement remote with the same OE part number, whether your vehicle has a factory system or an add-on alarm or remote start system, you are almost certain to end up with the correct transmitter.

Replacement Remote Key Fobs for Discontinued Toyota Transmitters with FCC ID BAB237131-022

Toyota used two different remotes with FCC ID BAB237131-022 with port-installed or dealer-installed systems in the late 1990s and early in this millennium. These remotes looked similar. One had a black case and the other a dark grey case. The easiest way to tell which of these you have is to compare the color of the buttons with the color of the case. Both remotes have black buttons. So, for the remote with the black case, the buttons and case are the same color. For the remote with the dark grey case, the case is just slightly lighter than the buttons.

Toyota makes replacement remotes for both of these transmitters. They look different from the original remotes, but once again, look very similar to each other. The original remotes and replacement keyfob for each are shown below.

Grey-cased Toyota remote with FCC ID BAB237131-022: http://www.remotesunlimited.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=224

Both remotes are user programmable and come with instructions and free phone tech support.

Replacement Toyota Port/Dealer-Installed Keyless Entry System Remote Transmitter with FCC ID ELVATDD

A reader with a 2006 Toyota Sequoia asked about a replacement for his remote keyfob with FCC ID ELVATDD.

Through 2010 or so, Toyota used port-installed keyless entry systems on many imported vehicles that did not have factory-installed systems. Some of these, including many Sequoia vehicles, use a remote transmitter with FCC ID ELVATDD and 4 buttons. Others used a 3-button ELVATDD key fob. Both of these parts have been discontinued by Toyota.

The Remotes Unlimited part number for the original 4-button remote is 289-1289. The button functions are lock, unlock and rear window roll-down on the front and panic on the back. The 3-button version of this remote is RUI part 092-6435. It can replace the 4-button part used on Sequoia vehicles, but the rear window function will be lost. Remotes Unlimited stocks gently used (B-Grade) 092-6435 remotes for the value price of $24.00.

You can see the 4-button original transmitter and purchase a B-Grade 3-button replacement remote at the following link:
3-button and 4-button Toyota remotes with FCC ID ELVATDD

Toyota has recently added a new 3-button dealer-installed remote transmitter. It has a different FCC ID — ELVATRF — and a different circuit board, but it will replace the old 3-button remote with FCC ID ELVATDD. You can see and purchase this new RUI remote with part number 092-7331 for $49.00 at the following link:
RUI part 092-7331 with FCC ID ELVATRF
