Default Finally some progress

This may sound stupid but I'm sure some of you will understand. I am really pumped right now. After what seems like weeks of nothing working right I am finally getting a few things sorted out. The other day, I changed out my trunk switch and the remote started working just like it should finally. Even though the dome light went off and on with the switch the switch was still faulty for the alarm.

So today I went out and was finally able to program the remote I bought from FamilyTruckster. I followed the programming instructions and lo and behold the new remote is working great now. Then just for a laugh I double locked it and checked the gas door and it was locked. All this time I thought it was broken.

Anyway some of you guys are doing much cooler things like engine swaps and body mods, but it still feels good to start getting some things sorted out.

Sweet man. Doesn't sound stupid at all. Sometimes it's the little things that make a big difference and make you love the ti all over again. Most of us bought our ti's used with over 100k miles on them. It just takes a little time to get all of the bugs worked out and the car to your liking. Familytruckster is a good example. When he first got his ti, he was running into problems after problems. He didn't give up though, stuck with it and now he's strarting to like the ti.

Sweet to hear bro. So you were having troubles with programming an OEM remote? What was the issue? I'm buying a used remote for mine this week.

Thanks Jess, your right I like the car again after my victory.

Platanos, no problem programming the remote once the alarm system was functioning properly. You just can't do anything when you just keep getting 3 chirps.

I just remembered now I have to go check the auto window rollup feature again. Awesome, I love fixing stuff!

Glad it's working for you!

I spent a lot of time trying to get mine working, trying to program it.... Then found that the car had the older 3 button remote alarm....DOH!

It's the little things. I just pulled mine apart and replaced a few broken clips on the door panels. Less rattles make the car much nicer to drive.
No more ti.
