Question about 2001 Acura 3.2TL

1 Answer

Car keys and keyless remote FOB programing/matching.

I bought a 2001 Acura EL that came with only one key and remote FOB. I purchase two keys online and now need to get them cut and program. Can I simply get them cut at any key cutting shop and is there a way I can program them myself? I have been searching for a second remote as well but because the vehicle was only sold in Canada no online store I have visited carry an exact FCC code ID match on the remotes they sell. The closet match are the 2004-2006 Acura TL remotes, will these remotes work with my car? Paul.

A Locksmith can cut and program keys. You likely did not save anything buying the blank online, locksmiths already have them on hand, and the key itself is not the major part of the fee.

I can not find a model EL, must be strictly Canadian

If this has been helpful, please post a review for City Lock Boulder Colorado USA listing on Google Maps

You may find a locksmith that has been background checked on a link from our website. I am not putting the link here, as it likely is a TOS thing

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

How to program a keyless fob for 2001 cadillac deville


Unfortunately, the website I found says there is no on-board method of programming your car for a new key-fob. You have to take the car to a dealer or to a key-maker (who may only charge half as much as the dealer)

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

2. Press Vehicle Information button (has the icon of a car and an 'i')until 'PRESS *check mark* TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY' displays.
3. Press set/reset button. The message 'REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE' will display.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for about 15 seconds. A beep will sound indicating that the transmitter is matched.

6. To exit the program mode, you must cycle the key to LOCK.

MY PT Cruiser Functional transmitter and the one to be programmed both have no "PANIC" Button . How I programme the spare Fob


If you don't have the Panic button then sorry, you can't program yourself, the dealer will have to program it to the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module in the vehicle, using their DRB scan tool.

1996 tl keyless entry


Do you have a keyless entry FOB. If you do replace the battery then program the system. Unlock the doors turn the ignition key to the "ON" position then press either the lock or unlock button of the FOB turn the ignition key off.Now turn the ignition key on again and press either button on the FOB. Turn the ignition off again. Do this 3 times. This initiates programming for the power door locks. Press the lock button of each remote one at a time to be stored in memory. this must be done within 10 seconds of each remote.
3 remotes max. Turn the ignition off and remove the key to complete programming procedure. then test each remote.
