Question Key FOB remote programming Question?

Can I program a different FOB not from my car but same remote for a different Pt I have all the proper buttons on both remotes (unlock, Lock and Panic)both are factory remotes. I have one factory remote for a 2003 Pt Cruiser and a used factory FOB from different Pt Cruiser. Does anyone know if it can be done or would I just have to buy a new FOB and go from there.
Thanks!

You should be able to program it to your cruiser. I believe your owners manual tells you how. If you search the forum, I'm sure there is a thread on this.

So long as you have two working remotes, you can program a third or more. If you don't, you'll need a Locksmith program it or have it done at a Chry$$$$ler dealer$$$$hip.

YES! Yes, you can program that remote from another first gen pt cruiser to your car. In fact, if you own more than one first generation PT Cruiser, you could program the same remote to both cars. If both cars are side by side, and you press the unlock button, both cars will unlock at the same time...etc.

Crazy question, kinda related to this. I have two remotes for my 99 300M and two remotes for my 04 Cruiser, is it possible to program all four remotes for both cars, just in case?

I am 95% sure that the fobs used on the LH cars use a different frequency and thus incompatible with the PT's system. I actually have a few of those fobs myself and I think I did try it at one point, but I am not sure enough to say with certainty. I will experiment again at some point.
