I recently lost my one and only keyless entry remote. I purchased a new aftermarket remote from an Ebay vendor and had it programmed by a locksmith....works perfect. I decided to pop for another remote to have as a spare since I could now program it with my one working remote for free. I have followed the directions on programming a second remote that I have found in various places online and even here on this site. The directions I am referring to can be found here.
I cannot get the truck to go into programming mode.
I have tried and tried. I know the remote that I am using is working properly because it does what it is supposed to. Anyone think of any reasons why it won't go into programming mode? The only thing that I can think of is that the signal that the aftermarket remote is sending out is a different frequency than factory. But you wouldn't think that would matter since the truck has been programmed to recognize that frequency. Everything I have read says you only have to have on working remote to program another. Surely you don't have to have one original remote to enter program mode??? That would be ridiculous.
