Hi,

I have searched the archives and come up with many discussions revolving around programming Compustar remotes to work with their module.  I have not found an answer to my question in the owner's manual or in these threads though.

I just installed the 1W900FM-S in my wife's 2001 Highlander.  All wires I feel necessary for remote start, keyless, and transponder are soldered, shrink wrapped, double and triple checked with DVOM and factory wiring diagram.  The tach sense procedure worked first try.  The antenna is installed.  Problem is the remotes don't communicate.  I ran out of time with the car and won't be able to work on it until tomorrow again.  Is it possible that the remotes that come with the unit AREN'T programmed to it already??  It's been a long time since I put in an alarm, but I remember the old DEI two button remotes working out of the box.

It would ease my fears to know this is true and all I need to do is perform the learning procedure.  I can't imagine what I would have wired wrong to make them not communicate!

BTW, the manual is a little... well, difficult to follow... is there a trick to programming the two remotes at once, or do you do them completely separately, or??  These are the four button one-way FM remotes with blue LED.

Thanks so much for any and all replies!!

The remotes that come with the unit are not pre-programmed. Cycle your ignition on and off 5 times rapidly and leave in the on position on the 5th cycle. Immediately press the lock button on the first remote. You should get one light flash, immediately press the lock button on the second remote, again a light flash. Wait for a series of light flashes or 30 seconds and turn off the ignition, remotes should be programmed.
Top Secret, I can tell you but then my wife will kill me.

I also start in the OFF and end in the OFF position. I guess it works both ways, but as Rob says, make sure you toggle the ignition 5 times ( within 3 seconds ).
