Re: Programming keyless remote for Neon 2004
There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.
I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.
For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.
Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.

You need to return the remote to midwest keyless and either tell them to give you a remote with the exact part number or buy one off of ebay. They are about $60 from the dealer. When the doors lock and unlock, the computer is telling you that the brain is now in learning mode but it is a must to have the correct remote. I have programmed thousands of keyless remotes so please believe what I say. You can program up to 4 remotes for one car but they all must be programmed at the same time. If you buy one remote and program it then get a second remote at a later date, you need to program both simultaneously. If you just program the second remote, the computer will no longer recognize the first remote. That is just some extra information for you. Let me know if you need any more help.
The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and
remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge
Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one
device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge
Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is
required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key
for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional
combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge
dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.
2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
Insert one of your working combination keys into the
ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10
seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
Insert your second working combination key into the ignition
within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After
10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to
flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove
Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to
"On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will
turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the
key and the remote--is programmed.
Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to
program. A total of eight can be programmed.
if you have the original remote, you can do it yourself. My remote was working without a problem until the other day when all of a sudden it didn't work out of nowhere. I thought it was the battery (might have been and needed to be reprogrammed after replacing it) so I changed it. Still didn't work. So I did a search and found the following instructions: Click Here
The answer is remarkably simple: 1. Get in the car and close the door. 2. Turn the key to the ACC position 3. Push the unlock button on the remote until the blinkers flash once. 4. Get out of the car and test the remote. It should be working fine. ( I actually was able to test it while in the car)
System will automatically lock all doors when vehicle is driven in excess of 15 mph Pressing UNLOCK (on remote) once deactivates system and unlocks driver door only Pressing UNLOCK (on remote) twice w/in 5 seconds deactivates system and unlocks all doors Alarm/central locking functions can be altered using remote transmitter
Access data link connector (DLC)- druvers sude fascia Switch ignition on Jump DLC terminal 1 and ground Ensure doors lock and unlock, indicating programming mode active Press any button of each remote to be programmed Ensure doors lock and unlock after each remote operation - indicating programming complete Remove jump lead to exit programmming code
It should be hit the unlock button 3 times, open and close the door 3 times, the locks will operate themselves twice. Hit the unlock button on the remote and it should program. you should try a remote from the dealer not from ebay.
