If your Io has central

If your Io has central locking it should be able to habe a keyless fob.

From what i understand you need to get the right fob which means the right FCC ID. when you have the right one you can program them yourself. Aparently there is a port under the steering colum and you basically put a paperclip running from the number 1 to the number 4. press the hazard lights and press the numbers on the fob and its programed to your car. or so im told.

I will try it out and let everyone know but all i need is for somone to tell me what code is on the back of there remote so i dont get the wrong one and waist my time.

Reson im doing this is because my driverside lock is jammed and its a PITA when it raining.

if i can't find anyone to help me out with the codes im going to just by a cheapo universal kit ($13) that i can wire into the central locking. if i do this i will also post up instructions.

i would prefer to press the hazard lights a few times rather than cut wires etc. 

Ive searched all over the net for these codes but all i get is the montero sport code.

cheers guys

I can confirm, from the

tI can confirm, from the manuals, the programming procedure for the remotes ...

1 - insert the ignition key into the lock

2 - insert the jumper between 1 & 4 in the diagnostic port

3 - press & release the hazard light switch 6 times (on/off, on/off, on/off)

the power locks should lock & unlock, indicating the system is in program mode.

4 - press either the lock or unlock button on the remote once, release and then press two more times.

the power locks should lock & unlock to confirm programming of the remote.

Up to four remotes can be programmed.

I have one key with a two button remote built in to it - but there is no FCC-ID on it (or inside it), and unfortunately it does not work.  I've tried a new battery, and reprogramming, but I never get the second lock/unlock cycle.

There is a code on the board inside the remote - G8D-530M-A - that may identify it, in that a google search will get you hits on remotes with similar numbers, but unfortunately not that exact number.

I'm still searching, so if I find one I'll let you know.

Google got me this - that's exactly what the plastic part of the key looks like - now if only I could read Japanese.

I suck at taking pictures

This is what the connector looks like (courtesy of wikipedia) a paper clip should work - I actually use a scrap of CAT5 cable because that stuff is always knocking around.

The key needs to be in the ignition switch and the switch in the lock position - the timing is fairly critical - you have to start the six pushes on the hazard light buttom within a few seconds of inserting the wire and make all six within another few seconds - I don't quite remember, but I believe you'll find it in the manual in the resource section/

Dam it, so no luck getting one to work then?

Im really keen on this, Im starting to get sick of not having remote for the central locking.


I had a key with a plastic bit that looked just like that link you posted on my delica key, it also didnt work. but i had an aftermarket alarm system that took care of the job so never botherd to try and get it working.

I don't think they all did

Whilst going through the electrical diagrams a few nights back, I came across four diagrams for power locks, two each LHD & RHD, with & without keyless entry, so I have to assume that not all vehicles came equipped with keyless entry.

After programming new key,

After programming a new key/fob, make sure you take the keys out of the ignition to test or the car will not lock, and it will seem as if the key hadn't programmed.

I just spent close to an hour pressing hazard lights and pressing the remote and thE remote was not working (it seemed). Until I gave up, took the keys out, walked away and tried to lock the car. Haha TAKE KEYS OUT OF IGNITION TO TEST IF ITS PROGRAMED.

Blonde moment on my behalf.

My 2002 Pajero came with no key, got one from wreckers off 99model, works a treat.

Thread revial!! Does anyone

Thread revial!!

Does anyone have a picture of what the key should look like?  I have a 1999 iO but only have a single spare blade key with no remote and want to see if I can find a new blank remote key that I can program to the keyless entry system and have the blade cut for my car.

Long shot probably but I would like to have a go. smiley

Calling it a long shot is an understatement.

This is an ebay image, but it's what mine looks like

Happy io

Just to keep things alive, I

Just to keep things alive, I just did this and it worked fine.  Used a paper clip to jumper the port.

6 times on the hazard swith, then 3 times on the remote.
