Question Keyless remote

I just picked up a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab and the dealer gave me a keyless remote but I need to program it. I went to a nearby Dodge dealer and they wanted $35 to do it. Can anyone help me program it?

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about using the link in my SIG to join us in the Newbie Checkin and posting a few photos of your truck?

I've heard and read the remotes have to be programmed at the dealership.

I'm not sure if this will work for you. It is my understanding that the system needs to be programmed by the dealer the first time, but you can do it subsequently. But here is the procedure from the manual. ( Use at your own risk )

Quote:
Vehicles with the keyless entry option will be shipped
from the assembly plants with two key fob transmitters
programmed only for that vehicle.Atotal of four fobs can
be programmed for your vehicle. Additional fobs can be
programmed to your vehicle through the use of a currently
programmed fob.
NOTE: When entering program mode using that fob,
ALL currently programmed fobs will be erased and you
will have to reprogram them for your vehicle. However,
if program mode is entered and no action is performed,
the previously programmed fobs will continue to function.
1. Enter your vehicle and close all doors.
2. Fasten your seat belt (fastening the seat belt will cancel
any chiming that may confuse you during this programming
procedure).
3. Place the key into the ignition.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON position ( Do not start the
engine ).
5. Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a programmed
(i.e. functional) key fob.
6. Continue to hold the UNLOCK button, wait at least 4
seconds, but no longer than 10 seconds, then press and
hold the PANIC button.
7. When a single chime is heard, release both buttons.
The chime indicates that the system is in program mode.
8. Press and release both the LOCK and UNLOCK
buttons, simultaneously on the fob to be programmed.
26 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE
9. A single chime will be heard. The chime indicates that
the fob has been recognized.
10. Within 4 seconds of hearing the chime, press and
release any button on the fob being programmed.
11. A single chime will be heard. The chime indicates
that the fob has been programmed.
12. Repeat steps 8 to 11 for a total of 4 fobs.
13. Turn the ignition to the OFF position or wait 60
seconds to exit program mode.
14. Your vehicle will remain in program mode for up to
60 seconds from when the original chime (i.e. Step #7)
was heard. After 60 seconds, all programmed fobs will
function normally.
NOTE: If you do not have a programmed transmitter,
contact your dealer for details.

States you need at least one working remote for these instructions to work.

Yep. 35.00 is cheap. Then buy an extra or 2 and program them yourself....

Thanks for the responses guys, I guess $35 isn't bad, I was just trying to see if I could get away cheaper since I'm on a fixed income.
