Dam dealerships- my 2004 gto has a funky key thats reverse cut with the remote attached to it. I got quoted at something like 350.00 for just the remote/key not inc the programming. I feel your pain...

Squazz On the broken key thing my friend had the same thing happen to his ford F-150. He uses the broken key to put it in the right position then hits the start button he wired up. Its funny that the key turns the ignition but wont start it. Not sure if its a ford thing or if he had more key on the non broken side?

I thought I was the only one. The factory ones were shot when I got it. I finally got around to replacing them sometime either last fall or over the winter, I don't remember exactly when. They already need to be replaced. I wonder if I can get a set of OEM ones at a dealer... Maybe they'd last a little longer.

I tried to troubleshoot my continuing engine issue. Re-secured the PCM connectors, but it still had trouble. Only between 140-160F on the temp gauge, though. Cold, it's fine, hot, it's fine, but as soon as it hits 140, it misses, stumbles, and dies. If it happens while it's moving at speed, it usually backfires. It's eaten 2 mufflers since I got it.

Doesn't seem to matter what my throttle position is, and it idles fine (except for occasional misses), so I don't think it's related to any topside senors. Any ideas, apart from replacing my PCM? (I plan on doing that when some money comes my way, but I don't know if it's just the PCM that's causing this)

There cheap enough if you do it that way. You know you you drive a ZJ when you order from RockAuto on a consistant basis. Lol.

keylessride.com they sell them for about $50, and the website will tell you how to program it.

I did this, aside from it being "carbon fiber" patterned, it seems like a well built remote (i've had mine for 6 months or so)

I just used a 3m scuff pad, then rattled it with the cheap paint from fleet farm. Worked amazingly, but if you miss anyplace with the scuff it will wash off. Basically wash it a week or two later, rescuff those areas and respray them.
