Easy one to try -

hold the new fob close to the car (within 1 metre) and press and hold both buttons down (small LED should start to flash between the two) for 10 secs - LED should then stay on - release both and then immediately press the larger one and hold for one sec - then release.

Should have programmed and linked up

That sequence is for when batery is flat to reconnect it. There's another sequence to first link to car fir first time.

I seriously hope and doubt it's that easy, else anyone with a cobra fob could find and reprogram their fob to any evo (or cobra protected car!)

good point

From memory there is also a way of using the pin code (you say you have one) by turning the ignition on /off then inserting the dibber thing - then next number etc might be worth a try i.e if pin is 1234 - turn ignition on and off (once) then press in dibber thing) then ignition on off (two times) then insert dibber thing - then third and fourth numbers of code and see if it works ??

Done it with the sequence thing and ignition. It worked but the old stopped working then did again to program old key fom then new one stopped working. It seems to overuse any other fobs that are programmed

first you need to set the remote into programming mode. hold both bottons until the light goes out. release and it will stay like this. dont touch it now.

make sure you have ALL touch/torpedo/black stick things and ALL remotes you want to program within reach and seperated from each other (makes life easier)

now follow the below

1. Ign on and off 3 times within 7 secs, the red LED will Illuminate
2. when LED goes out switch the Ing back on
3. count the flashes, when it reaches each digit of your pin code flick the Ign switch OFF and ON again.
4. do step 3 for ALL of your four pin code numbers, when you finish you should have Ign ON.

5. Now touch your touch/torpedo/black stick thing on the receptacle and the LED should stay on. you are now in programming mode.

6. press the large button on your fob, the LED should flash off then on again to say its been accepted. do this for all the fobs you have.

7. then do the same with the touch/torpedo/black stick things on the receptacle and agian you should get a confirmation flash.

8. switch Ign off and test. they should all work if not you went wrong somewhere


NOTE: if the light goes off on your Fob while you are carring out the sequence just press the large button once and it will spring back on.
