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.

You can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by doing the following:
1. Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code.
2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
3. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
4. Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime with sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off.

The new Sentry Key has been programmed. Repeat this process to program up to a total of 8 keys."

Without 2 valid keys, it is back to the dealer for them to reprogram.

Also, could check the Chrysler PT Cruiser Sedan - Convertible Owners Manual (page 17)

According to Edmunds.com, Chrysler first released the PT Cruiser in 2001. PT Cruiser owners who need replacement factory keyless remotes for their vehicles can purchase them from a Chrysler dealer or online from keylessride.com. Remotes purchased directly from Chrysler will be programmed by the dealer but may be more expensive. Remotes purchased online will cost less but will require programming before use. The programming process for factory remotes can be done by the vehicle owner but requires the owner to have a working keyless remote.

Instructions:
1. Insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to the "run" position. The "run" position is the position located immediately before the "start" position that starts the vehicle.
2. Press and hold the "unlock" button on the working keyless remote for 4 to 10 seconds. While holding the "unlock" button, press and hold the "panic" button on the working remote for 1 second. Release both buttons simultaneously. If done correctly, a chime will sound for 3 seconds indicating the vehicle has entered remote programming mode. If the chime does not start, repeat the tasks in this step to enter programming mode.
3. Press any button on each keyless remote that needs programming within 30 seconds of entering programming mode. A chime will sound after each remote is successfully programmed.
4. Turn the key in the ignition to the "off" position and remove the key to exit remote programming mode. Test each remote by locking and unlocking the door locks on the vehicle.

Hope helps.

    Remote Keyless Entry - Description

    The remote keyless entry system allows locking and unlocking of the
    vehicle door(s) liftgate, panic alarm and arming or disarming of the
    vehicle theft security system (if equipped), using the hand held radio
    frequency (RF) transmitter. The receiver may receive signals from up to
    four transmitters. Each transmitter has its own code, and the code is
    programmed and stored into RKE module memory. If a transmitter is
    replaced or additional transmitters are added, the codes for all units
    have to be reprogrammed into the RKE module memory. If a receiver module
    is replaced, the transmitter codes must be stored in the new receiver
    memory (by performing the steps for programming transmitters). The RKE
    module is capable of retaining all transmitter codes when power is
    removed from the module.



    Remote Keyless Entry - Operation

    The transmitter has three buttons for operation: LOCK, UNLOCK and PANIC.




    Pressing the UNLOCK button will unlock the driver's door, flash the park
    lamps twice and enable illuminated entry. Pressing and releasing the
    button once will unlock the drivers door. Pressing and releasing the
    button two tomes within a five second interval will unlock all doors.




    Pressing the LOCK button will cause the horn to sound a short chirp (if
    enabled) and flash the park lamps to notify that the all door lock
    signal was received and set. Illuminated entry is cancelled and the
    interior lamps are faded to off.




    Pressing the PANIC button will cause the panic alarm to sound for three
    minutes, until the PANIC button is pressed a second time, or the vehicle
    reaches a speed of 25.7 Km/h (15 mph). The receiver is capable of
    retaining a Vehicle Access Code (VAC) even when power is removed. Each
    Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) module must have at least one and no more
    than four transmitter.



    The instruction guide for programming the transmitter can be found in the Pit area.

    c.- Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within

    Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the
    second key.

    d.- Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the
    ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime
    with sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3
    seconds; then turn off.

IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the transmitters you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program the transmitter, all previous codes will be erased from the memory. The other transmitters will not be functional until you program the transmitters again.
  1. Close and lock all doors with the driver's side power lock/unlock switch.
  2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.
  3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.
  4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.
  5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
  6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition,
    unlock doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.

How to program a fob keyless remote


ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.

1. Turn ignition to run position (as far as you can go without starting engine).
2. Using any Working remote, press the UNLOCK button for 4 to 10 seconds.
3. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK buton and press
the PANIC button for 1 second and release both buttons at the same time. A chime will
sound within 3 seconds to indicate that the vehicle has entered remote programming
mode.
4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press any button on all remotes to be programmed
including previously programmed remotes. A chime will sound after each remote is
programmed.
5. Turn ignition to OFF and remove key.
6. Test all remotes.

Have you you tried just re-programming all of your remotes? I just added a "new" (from Ebay) remote and when re-programming, had to do them all. Here's how... 1. Using a functional key fob transmitter, unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System. 2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch. 3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting engine. 4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum four seconds (maximum ten seconds) 5. While holding UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press and release the PANIC button. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s) 6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful. 7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle (up to 4 total) 8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s) 9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob

Key fob will not undo cetral locking or disable car alarm changed battery in key fob still having no luck any idea who can re code key fob to central locking and alarm?


If you don't have one that works for the vehicle now, you'll have to take it to your local dealer to have it programmed to the vehicle. Some will charge for this, some will do it at no charge.

If you do have a remote that is programmed and working for the vehicle, then the following steps will allow you to program another remote:

1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold the unlock button on the working key fob and hold for 4 seconds, then also press the panic button.

5. Release both buttons and you should hear a single chime to indicate it is in program mode. You have 30 seconds after the chime to program any additional remotes you want to program.

6. Press and release both the unlock and lock buttons simultaneously on the remote you are programming. You should hear another single chime.

7. Within 4 seconds after hearing the chime, press either lock or unlock button on remote that you are programming.
