How to program a remote control prostart in a jetta 91

I can not program remot control from prostart in a jetta 91

    My '97 Civic (no power locks / no keyless start or anything extra) has a prostart remote starter. It doesn't work after about 6 years of service. Do they just commonly die after that time or is it my remote? I changed batteries, and I will say the buttons work if I press firmly. Sometimes red light on remote won't shine so I press again, and they work.

    I suspect maybe the programming needs to be re-done so how can I do this? If this won't work, at least I know my remote is the problem and can maybe get a new one, instead of a whole new installation.

    My button switch is a little loose too. Tried to tighten and sanded to clean around where it meets metal on car. Seems to make ok contact. Do the button switches commonly go?

    When I turn off and on the valet switch under dash, I get beeps and lights as I should. Does that mean the unit itself is still good?

    Help please and thank you. I don't want to get a new one at this stage of the car's life if not necessary.

Sounds as if the device is now out of the warrenty by now. any Devices like this are common to break down. Im surprised you got 6 years out of the bugger. the companys want you to buy new ones. you can try checking the prostart website fora replacement remote, but the cheapest way out is to goto a wall mart and get a new remote start.

I have prostart 3 way new installed into 1995 f250diesel can't get remotes to conect to the prostart brain box

Verify batteries are installed and installed correctly in the remotes. Examine the batteries and the battery holders on the remotes for "shipping isolators", pieces of plastic film or tape that insulate the batteries from the battery contact points. Verify the batteries are fully charged with a volt meter. Beyond these basic check points, contact prostart support.

I installed prostart remote starter in 2002 Sonoma,used xpresskit bypass module to bypass passlock 2, truck started with remote ,now won;t start with remote,have to reset and start with truck key

If you are sure that everything is connected properly, then the only explanation could the ground when running from the remote starter to the bypass. If you are using data to data(D2D), switch over to wire to wire. Test the ground when running connection from the remote starter (white) to the ground when running connection of the Xpresskit (blue). You could even go so far as to connect the ground when running of the bypass to constant ground for the test. You CANNOT leave this wire connected to chassis ground.
Also, that vehicle has a second ignition wire(white) that MUST BE power up for remote start. If not, it will trigger the check engine light.

I have new keys for my 1999 vw jetta tdi, but i don't have the remote to program the new keys. how can i go about doing this since there is no vw dealers in belize

"small"problem.If you don.t have remote control the keys can be programed only with diagnostic equipment.There is another procedure but you need of wiring diagram of the immobiliser to cut off the wire.Means - ignore for ever the immobiliser.Not safety in Belize.Just take your decision.
