Replacement (Audiovoxx) Prestige Remote Transmitter with FCC ID H5OT35

A visitor to our website recently asked about a replacement one-way remote transmitter for his Audiovox Prestige XRO9100 car alarm system. The correct part is Audiovox part XRO-91P with FCC ID H5OT35, Remotes Unlimited part 077-6496, which can be seen and purchased at the following link: RUI Part 077-6496

Two-way systems that use part XRO-91P, may also use two-way remote transceiver XRO-92P (RUI part 099-2630). This part has not been available from Voxx (Audiovox) for some time. As of the writing of this entry, Remotes Unlimited does have 1 pre-owned XRO-92P part in stock, which can be seen at the following link: RUI part 099-2630

Systems using either of these key fobs can be programmed by a consumer to add the new transmitter/transceiver. In doing so, it is important to have a working valet (cut-off) switch, and also helpful to have a working siren to be able to hear the feedback signals (chirps) emitted by the control module during programming.

Replacement Remote Key Fob Transmitter for 2001 Chevy Tahoe and Other Truck Platform Vehicles

A blog reader recently asked what part he needs for a recently purchased 2001 Chevy Tahoe. Here is our response:

GM used two different systems on 2001 Tahoes.

For the first half of the model year, which includes vehicles assembled up through February 2001, the factory keyless entry system on Tahoe requires our fob number 517-1517. GM no longer makes this transmitter, but we have re-newed OE 517-1517 parts in stock and also an aftermarket replacement for it. You can see and buy this remote at the following link: Part 517-1517

For the second half of the model year, which includes vehicles assembled from March 2001 forward, the factory keyless entry fob is our part number 514-1514. You can see multiple options and choose one to buy at the following link: Part 514-1514

If you click on both links, you will see that these parts are virtually identical on the outside. In fact, you can use the same outer case to re-case both of these OE parts. Do not let this fool you though. They have different circuit boards and are not interchangeable.

The same is true for most other truck platform GM vehicles built in the 2001 model year.

Audiovox (Voxx) Type 20 Prestige and Pursuit Remote Start Transmitters

Buying a replacement keyless entry, remote start or alarm system remote transmitter can be confusing. Often, there are multiple replacement parts that can be used interchangeably but look different. In other cases, parts that look identical are not interchangeable. That is why you need to purchase a replacement key fob from a company that really knows these products.

An example are the remote start transmitters for Type 20 systems from Audiovox (now Voxx). These systems, with either the Pursuit or Prestige brand, include keyfobs with either 1, 3 or 5 buttons. There are 8 transmitters overall. Four of these – with Audiovox part numbers 141BP, 141BPR, 171BP and 171BPR – are 1-button remote start transmitters. Those with “BP” at the end have the Prestige brand and those with “BPR” at the end have the Pursuit brand.

The differences can be very minor. For instance, 141BP and 171BP have the same function and look very similar. The most noticeable difference is the button icon. Remote 141BP has a key symbol for the icon and keyfob 171BP has a circular arrow symbol. For comparison, the Pursuit brand versions of these four interchangeable remotes can be seen in the links below:

Remote Transmitters with FCC ID EZSDEI7701

Remotes Unlimited is aware of 5 two-way LCD remote transceivers with FCC ID EZSDEI7701. To our knowledge, only two of these keyfobs are still being manufactured.

EZSDEI7701 remotes carrying the UNGO or ASTROSTART brand are unique, and cannot be replaced by any other two-way keyfob. We have been out of stock on the UNGO transceiver for some time. We do stock the ASTROSTART remote (HST-5224) as our part 073-7410, which you can see and purchase at the following link:
AstroStart remote 073-7410

The other three EZSDEI7701 remotes – on DEI models with the brand CLIFFORD, PYTHON or VIPER – are all interchangeable. They contain the same circuit board despite differences in external cosmetic features. Only the VIPER brand part is still made. It is our part 889-1889. These DEI-brand systems also accept a 1-way companion transmitter. Remotes Unlimited offers the Clifford brand remote (our part 934-1934). You can see and purchase these keyfobs at the following link:
Viper remote 889-1889

Audiovox Car Alarm Systems Using AA-9158 Power Door Lock Interface

We recently received an inquiry from a customer who said the add-on car alarm system in his vehicle is an Audiovox AA-9158 system. This reference number actually refers to a power door lock interface component that was used in multiple alarm systems. Those systems include AA-9147, AA-9247, TSP-300, TSP-400, TSP-450, TSP-500, TSP-550, TSP-700 and TSP-750 alarm models.

The original remote transmitter used with these systems is Remotes Unlimited part 178-1178. It is no longer made, but there is a newer Audiovox Prestige system key fob that will work as a replacement for the original remote. You can see both transmitters at the following link:
Remotes Unlimited Part 178-1178

Interchangeable Remote Key Fobs with Different Button Configurations

At Remotes Unlimited, we often are asked questions about button configurations and icons on keyless entry and add-on system remote transmitters. Questions include such things as:
(1) “When I search for my keyfob on remotesunlimited.com using my FCC ID, why do I see multiple parts with different buttons on them?”
(2) “If I buy a keyfob with a remote start button, will I be able to remotely start my car?”
(3) “Will it matter if the button in your picture does not look exactly like the one on my remote?”
(4) “My remote has a trunk button icon. Your site is offering me a part with a liftgate icon instead. Will it work?”

These are all reasonable questions. Here are some things you should know:

First, manufacturers sometimes change the icon on a remote transmitter button for no apparent reason and with no operational effect. This could be because of a perceived user benefit, such as adding the word “Hold” on a button to indicate that the button needs to be pressed and held down to have the desired effect. Or it could be because a graphic artist decided it would look better. Or, the replacement remote may be made by a different supplier than the original part shipped with a vehicle. So, the fact that a button looks slightly different on a replacement remote is not a certain indication that it will not work in place of your original remote.

Second, while the number and placement of buttons on a remote can be important to its operation, there are countless situations in which keyfobs with different button configurations have the same circuit board inside the remote. So, it is not unusual for two otherwise similar remotes – one with a trunk button, say, and another with a liftgate button – to be entirely interchangeable. And a 4-button remote with an “OPT” (option) button added is likely to work with an add-on system that used an otherwise equivalent 3-button remote with no “OPT” button.

Unfortunately, the challenge faced by nearly all consumers looking to buy a replacement remote is that generalizations don’t matter. All that matters is what is true in their specific situation. That is why you should always buy a replacement remote from a source that you find to have the knowledge and experience to be credible selling you a complicated technical security part.

Oh yes, about that remote start button question. If your vehicle was not originally equipped with remote engine start capability, there is very little chance that simply buying a keyfob with a remote start button on it will perform that function. If it does, then either you or the part may have magical powers.

Mercury-Nissan-Infiniti Remote Key Fob with FCC ID KOBUTA2T or KOBUTA3T

Between 1996 and 2003 a variety of vehicles sold by Mercury, Nissan and Infiniti use a Lear-made factory keyless entry system. The original 3-button remotes had lock, unlock and panic buttons and either FCC ID KOBUTA2T or KOBUTA3T on the back. These key fobs are no longer made or sold by the original vehicle manufacturers. However, Remotes Unlimited does offer a replacement remote transmitter that will work in place of the original fobs. It is our 4-button ReMoto key fob part number 098-7960. We also currently have a few remaining pre-owned OE transmitters in stock. You can see the original transmitter and buy either a pre-owned OE remote or a new ReMoto keyfob at the following link:
Remote with FCC ID KOBUTA2T or KBOUTA3T

The systems that use this remote have “on-board” programming, so a consumer can program the vehicle to accept the remote without requiring any special tools. Remotes Unlimited includes programming instructions and free phone tech support with purchased parts.

Recently a customer asked us which vehicles had this system installed. The following Mercury, Nissan and Infiniti vehicles could have a keyless entry system that used this remote, but keep in mind that it was not standard equipment on all vehicles:
1999-2002 Mercury Villager
1996-2000 Nissan Altima
1998-2000 Nissan Frontier
1996-1999 Nissan Pathfinder
1999-2003 Nissan Quest
1995-1999 Nissan Sentra

Finding Model Information for Your Add-On Car Alarm or Remote Start System

Many people call us because they need a new remote transmitter for their add-on car alarm or remote start system but do not know which one to buy. In order to be certain you are buying the correct part, you should know the brand and model information of the system in your vehicle OR information from an original key fob that worked with the system. Often, remote information may not be available because printed or embossed information is too worn to read or a label has come off entirely. So system model information is always the failsafe method for specifying the correct remote.

If you do not have the original manual or purchase information for the car alarm or remote start system in your vehicle, you will likely need to locate the control module (receiver or “brain”) for your system. This component is a small (approximately 4″x3″x1″) box-like device. Most installers tuck it up under the dash board on the driver’s side of the vehicle, often securing it with twist or zip ties. It has several wired leading from it to the various other components of the system. Often, the easiest way to find it is to follow a wire from the shut-off (valet) switch or LED indicator light. The model information is usually printed or embossed somewhere on this control module.

Remote Start 1-button Key Fobs for Add-on Systems Made By Audiovox

“Remote Start” is a very popular aftermarket feature, particularly in areas with extremely cold winters or hot summers. So popular that many add-on systems perform only that single function using a 1-button remote transmitter. The largest marketers of these systems have been Audiovox, through its Prestige and Pursuit brands, and Code Alarm, through the systems it makes for many car manufacturers and also for systems sold under its own brand.

Audiovox 1-button remote key fobs have had many different styles over the years. They are not all interchangeable. Often, the brand (Prestige or Pursuit) does not matter with respect to interchangeability. But the FCC ID does matter.

Audiovox 1-button transmitters have been made and sold with FCC IDs ELVATCC, ELVATFE, ELVATGA, ELVATIE, ELVATJB, ELVATJG, ELVATND, ELVATNG and H5OT45. Replacement key fobs are available for all of these 1-button remotes through the Remotes Unlimited website. Simply use search method 4 and enter the FCC ID that appears on the back of the remote that you are replacing. Or . . . you can always call us for assistance.
