Question:

I just recently purchased a Honda Civic EX Sedan 1997 car… It came with a stereo/radio that doesn”t have either a CD player or Tape player either. So I was thinking of purchasing this new radio from circuit city. It says once I put in my car information that it fits. However, I read in another article that in the stereo/radio of the Honda Civics EX ”97s that the key-less entry for my unlock/lock/panic key button chain is located within the stereo/radio and if I were to replace it with a new stereo system, I wouldn”t be able to use my key-less entry no more. Is this true, and if so, what can I do to fix this problem, as I really want a new stereo? 

Answer:

 Yes, the stock radio has your key-less entry in the radio. However, you can purchase a wire harness from Circuit City that allows you to leave the factory radio powered up and still install an aftermarket radio. You just leave the factory radio in the dash behind the aftermarket one and your key-less entry still works.

Question:
Has anyone found a way too improve the poor range and some of the other undesirable shortcomings of the factory installed remote starter on the T Tundra?

Answer:
You might try adding to the gray antenna wire and extending it. Not all models have this antenna wire though.

A Toyota Technician has proven that holding the remote up to your chin and pressing the button actually proved to add about 20 feet to the range of a remote.

 Programing a Nissan remote , is hidden secret by Nissan Dealers. Here is how its done.

Just get in your vehicle , close all doors. Using your power lock switch , lock all doors. After doors are locked take your Ignition and insert it and remove it from ignition switch in a slow fashion , but consistent pace. (97 and earlier are fast) When you see the hazard lights flash, put key in ignition and turn to the On position .. Do NOT CRANK or you will have to Start over .. After in the On position .. Hit the Lock button on remote… Hazard lights should flash..( note..you have to reprogram all remotes when adding a new one , if you don’t your old remotes will not work ) If your doing just the one , turn ignition switch off and unlock door and get out and try it. If you are doing more than one. While still in Vehicle with Key on . After you hit the Lock button on Remote and hazard light flashed .. with key still on .. use master switch unlock doors and re-lock and then hit Second Remote, Lights should flash again , repeat if adding a 3rd remote.. after done just turn key off and unlock door and get out and try.
