95.5-97 Troopers:
Note that the "box" referred to is usually located directly under the steering wheel/dash area. It is black, about 4x4 inches, and likely fastened under or near the steering column. Get your head down by the pedals and look up to see it.

-- START --

Assuming this is the original keyless system, there is a white label on the top of the box. The label is covering over the hole. (We usually access the box by removing the small cover in the left area of the lower dash panel and using a long screwdriver.)

Push around in the middle of the label and tear the paper thru the hole. Inside there is a square yellow button.

Key on, key off, push and hold the button until you hear two tones or the horn beeps.

Release the button and momentarily press the "lock" icon on the remote. You'll hear a confirming tone or beep.

Key on and off again. Try it to see if it works.

Keep in mind nothing will arm or lock if a key is in the ignition switch while you're testing.

I GOT IT, I GOT IT, I GOT IT! Thanks so much fellas. With my 97 Rodeo I had to simply turn the key ON, press and hold the reset button on the unit until the alarm beeped twice. (the security light comes on steady then flashes twice) Make sure the driver's side door is closed (or toggle the light button) then press the remote lock button and that was it! The doors locked and unlocked with the new remote. I feel as if I accomplished a miracle. Now how do I program additional remotes?

I would start from fresh by resetting the unit underneath the seat. After resetting the unit, it was on from there. Just make sure all doors are closed. It worked like a charm for me. Good Luck!

I forgot to mention that I had to turn the key to "on" instead of accessory. However I aquired an additional remote and I can't get it to program. It has the same FCC number however it was used on a 1996 model, I wonder if the year has anything to with it? I have a 1997.

These directions worked on my Rodeo but not without some practice. The exact steps came boxed with the remote. My first 4 or 5 tries were too slow, I slept on it, and then the next day tried it faster...and by memory at that point after having gone through it so many times.

Don't open and close the door...just press the black toggle button until the dome light goes out. you can have one finger of your left hand on the toggle and your keys in the ignition with your right hand. While doing this procedure I couldn't help but imagine the engineers laughing as they created these steps.

The directions are a bit incorrect, it's not ACCESSORY to OFF, as there is no "OFF"...it actually reads "LOCK" on my truck.

I hate the horn chirps as well. Can this be turned off? On another car you can hold the lock and alarm button for 5 seconds and it would toggle, can you do it on the Trooper somehow?
