Default Remote locking receiver swap.

Hi all.

I've just bought a 2001 Touring and it only came with one key and no remote fobs.

I've been offered a remote locking receiver and two fobs from a 2005 car which is being broken up.

Would this work on my car and would it still be programmed? Also, where is this part located on the car and can I do it myself?

Thanks.

Parker

the rke is located under the dash panel just above the center radio bezel. there's a sticky in the tech section on how to remove the dash top. should be able to do it yourself. will it work with the existing key? have no clue. probably not. might have to get it programmed at the dealer.

Thanks for the fast reply.
So not too difficult to replace then.

What I was wondering though, was if the fobs which are already programmed to this replacement receiver would still work if I put it in my car, or if it would wipe the coding to them. As I don't have any fobs for my car at the moment, I don't want to waste money on this part just to be in the same situation.

i don't know if the fobs will work without reprogramming. maybe someone with more knowledge can help.
