You turn the key on and off 4 times within 6 seconds, then the LED on the dash goes solid red (this tells you it is in "programming mode"). Then just press any button on the pad, and turn the ignition back on to exit programming mode. That's all there is to it. If you have keyless and the remote is compatible, you're golden.
Nothing happened when i pressed the button except for the red light flashed again. I don't think the remote is compatible b/c it is from an 02'. Is there any other way to tell before i go buy a remote for a 99 cougar from the factory?
