Utilize Common Tricks

To reset the remote of a factory-installed car-alarm system, consult instructions in the vehicle’s owner’s manual. Many late-model vehicles require the use of a scan tool, programmed with specifications from the manufacturer, in order to reset a factory remote. The remote links to the onboard module that controls keyless entry and alarm functions via the scan tool. Older vehicles may allow vehicle owners the option of resetting the remote by following a specific procedure. The steps necessary to reset the remote vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
