We received a comment from a customer who was confused about programming a new remote-head key for his Jeep. He had seen some sources that said one working key are required and others that said two working keys are needed. Here is our response:
The confusion stems from the fact that there are two components of your remote-head key that require programming. One is remote functions. The other is the anti-theft transponder. You can program the remote functions of a new remote-head key if you have one working key already. But programming the anti-theft transponder requires two working keys. That is for security reasons.
Of course, the key blade will also need to be cut. If you do not have the required number of working keys for programming a new one yourself, then the new part will need to be programmed using a computer “scan tool” device. Dealerships and most well-equipped automotive locksmiths have this device and can perform key programming and key cutting.
Remotes Unlimited has part 95430-2V010 in stock and for sale at nearly $100 less than the Hyundai list price. This keyless remote transmitter was used on 2012-14 Hyundai Veloster vehicles sold in various places around the globe. To be sure this is the correct part for your vehicle, ask a Hyundai dealer to tell you the part number of the remote transmitter you need, or send the VIN with your order. You can purchase Hyundai part 95430-2V010 at the following link: Hyundai Veloster transmitter 95430-2V010
This transmitter does not come with a key blade. If you have a cut flip-key blade for your vehicle, it can be moved to the new part. A computer scan tool is required to program your vehicle to accept the new remote transmitter.
Remotes Unlimited is having a Labor Day sale on our part 706-1706. For a limited time, this OEM Hyundai remote transmitter (part number 95430-3K200, 95430-3K201 or 95430-3K202) is priced at only $59.00, a substantial savings from the dealer list price of $173.26. You can see and purchase this part on our website at the following link: Hyundai Key Fob 95430-3K20x
This remote key fob, with FCC ID OSLOKA-310T, was used on the following models:
2007 2008 2009 2010 Hyundai Elantra
2006 2007 2008 2009 (old body style) Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai introduced a new body style for the Sonata during the 2009 model year. If equipped with a key ignition, those vehicles used a transmitter with FCC ID OSLOKA-950T and OE part number 95430-3Q000/3Q001 from 2009 through 2013. That remote is functionally equivalent to our part 706-1706.
Please note that vehicles using these key fobs require a computer scan tool for programming the vehicle to accept the new transmitter. That means you will have to take the car and all remotes used with it to a dealership or well-equipped mechanic or locksmith for programming.
Order soon because quantities may be limited and the sale will end after Labor Day.
A blog reader wrote us to ask if Remotes Unlimited offers a replacement for the discontinued Nissan 3-button remote key fob with FCC ID KBRASTU10 and Model /01A. The answer is that we offer two replacement options that will work for the original transmitter. They look different than the KBRASTU10 remote but transmit the same signal. Remotes Unlimited part 739-1739 is an original Nissan part. Part 098-7413 is Remotes Unlimited’s aftermarket version of the Nissan part. You can see and purchase either part at the following link:
Replacements for Nissan 3-button remote with FCC ID KBRASTU10 and Model /01A.
Factory keyless entry systems that use this transmitter are programmable by the user. Instructions and free phone technical support are provided with the part.
CAUTION: You should be aware of this “Watch Out”. Nissan also made identical KBRASTU10 remotes with other model numbers. The options shown at the link above will only work as a replacement for original remotes with “Model/01A” shown on the back of the remote case.
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.
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
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:
