Programming Keyless Entry Remote Transmitter for 97-98 Mark VIII


NOTE: The driver door module (DDM) erases all previously stored keyless entry remote transmitters when programming a new transmitter. If you are adding an additional transmitter, the existing transmitters stored in memory must be programmed at the same time.

  1. Enter the permanent factory keyless entry keypad code on the driver's door keypad.

  2. Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to activate the programming mode. Holding the 1/2 button for more than two seconds will erase all stored customer codes. The door locks will lock, then unlock, confirming the codes are erased. The existing codes do not need to be erased to program new codes. You might need to repeat this step twice.

  3. Press and hold any button on the keyless entry remote transmitter. The doors locking and unlocking confirm the programming.

  4. The DDM will automatically associate the transmitter to a personality setting. The first transmitter will be position l and the second transmitter will be position 2. The remaining transmitters, if programmed, will not be associated to a personality setting.

  5. If additional transmitters are to be programmed, program each transmitter within 7.5 seconds of the last transmitter.

  6. After all transmitters are programmed:

  • A new keyless entry keypad code can be programmed within 7.5 seconds of the last transmitter.

  • Press keyless entry keypad buttons 7/8 and 9/0 at the same time to exit program mode.

  • Wait for 7.5 seconds; the DDM will exit the program mode automatically
