2003 Nissan Sentra a split-year situation. Nissan used one keyless entry system on vehicles for the beginning of the model year and then switched midway through the model year. So, if your are buying a replacement remote for a 2003 Sentra, choose carefully.
2003 Nissan Sentra vehicles assembled through March 2003 used an oval-shaped remote with FCC ID NHVWBU43 or NHVBU427 on the back of the case. See the part at this link.
2003 Nissan Sentra vehicles assembled from April 1 2003 on used a rectangular-shaped remote with FCC ID CWTWB1U429 on the back of the case. See the part at this link.
If you do not have an original remote and do not know what it looked like, it is best to use the production date to choose the correct remote. Your vehicle has a production stamp that shows the month your car was assembled. This production stamp is usually located on a front door jamb. If you need to select your remote by the production date, go to this link.
Both remotes used on 2003 Nissan Sentra are user-programmable.
Remotes Unlimited just lowered pricing on ‘Fobik’ remote transmitters with FCC ID GQ4-53T. These key fobs were used on 2013-20 RAM pick-up trucks and 2014-20 Jeep Cherokee SUVs. These new original equipment remotes are now priced well below the dealership list price. Click on one of the links below for an example:
RAM 5-button Fobik with FCC ID GQ4-53T
Jeep Cherokee 4-button Fobik with FCC ID GQ4-53T
We recently received an inquiry from a business partner who wanted to know about remote start transmitters with FCC ID GOH-PCMINI. These remote key fobs are used with add-on dealer-installed remote engine start systems manufactured by Code Alarm (now Voxx) and provided by several vehicle manufacturers. The image below shows some of the remotes with this FCC ID.
If you would like to see more information about these parts on the Remotes Unlimited website, go to the search engine on our home page and enter “GOH-PCMINI” in the response box for search method 4. All systems using these remotes can be programmed by the user to add a new transmitter.
A customer recently contacted Remotes Unlimited to inquire about getting a replacement remote for his 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. His old remote had stopped working entirely after many years of service.
He contacted us by phone because the remote shown on our website for a 1999 Ford F-150 truck did not look like his original. The reason for this is that his truck was not equipped with a keyless entry system when it was shipped from the factory. Instead, the dealer sold an add-on “dealer-installed” keyless entry system to the first owner. That system was not the same as the factory system and uses a different remote. This is a fairly common situation.
When the customer went to our website, he saw the listing shown at the link below for our part number 343-1343:
1999 Ford F-150 Factory System Remote
Instead, his system was made for Ford by Code Alarm. It uses a remote with FCC ID GOH-3BFM2497. As soon as we determined this, we knew the part he was looking for is our part 675-1675. You can see the Code Alarm part at the following link:
Part 675-1675 – Ford dealer-installed system remote with FCC ID GOH-3BFM2497
Unfortunately, Ford discontinued this part some years ago. An equivalent part was used on dealer-installed systems sold by Kia, but it too has been discontinued. This situation highlights a growing problem . . . cars are staying in service for longer periods but manufacturers are shortening the period for which they support vehicles with replacement parts.
A very resourceful customer recently contacted us after purchasing a used 2007 Corolla CE. She was not given any key fobs for the vehicle, but was convinced it was equipped with keyless entry because she found a module under the dash. That receiver was labeled part number 00016-79200-01 and included FCC ID BGA97TOYR.
She was correct. This is the receiver for a dealer-installed keyless entry system made for Toyota by aftermarket system manufacturer Audiovox and used on many vehicles that were not equipped with factory-installed keyless entry systems. We responded that the original transmitter for this vehicle is Remotes Unlimited part 092-6435 – Toyota part 00016-34030(-05) – with FCC ID ELVATDD. That part is no longer manufactured, but Remotes Unlimited still offers pre-owned transmitters of this type. It has been replaced by a newer part – 092-7331 with FCC ID ELVATRF. You can see both parts at the following link: 092-6435 with alternate 092-7331
This system is user programmable, using a toggle switch found on the receiver module.
We recently received an inquiry from a site visitor looking for the correct remote key fob for an Audiovox aftermarket alarm system that uses a receiver with FCC ID ELVAR5C. The original replacement key fob for that receiver is Remotes Unlimited transmitter 267-1267, which can be viewed and purchased at the following link: Prestige (Audiovox) fob 267-1267
This transmitter has FCC ID ELVAT5C. Note that the FCC ID of the receiver and the transmitter are the same except for the characters “R” and “T” in the middle. This is a common FCC naming approach for aftermarket systems, though there also are numerous exceptions.
Aftermarket alarm systems are user programmable. Generally, the programming procedure uses the valet (or “shut-off”) switch to place the system in programming mode. So, you need a working valet switch to program this Audiovox system. While not essential, it is also helpful to have a working siren so you can hear the audible chirps during the programming process.
