This does not work. The electronic tonedoes not stop when I enter the code using the door lock / unlock switch. Also the manual states the horn should indicate the programming mode is activated. This also does not happen.. I have used this set of instructions with the exceptions noted. Fob not registering
Expert:  Ronnie replied 1 year ago.

If that is the case then you may have a problem with your Fob or there is a problem with the system. Are you able to have the system scanned to see if there are any fault codes setting?
