TUTORIAL: Programming Keyless Entry in Early 90’s Chryslers

Today, my replacement keyless entry remote came in for my 1993 New Yorker. It had to be programmed to the car. Problem is, you have to pull apart the center dash support bracket cover, the under dash cover, ground a wire, press some buttons, turn the key, unground, etc. If you’re interested, i’ve created a thread in the forums on how it is done.

This should also work on the early 90’s Fifth Avenues, Imperials, and Dynasty’s. Possibly even the K-Cars too. Check it out if you want to learn!

Basically get in contact with Chris Lacouture @ clacouture@e3sparkplugs.com, they want their problem plugs back and should issue you a refund under warranty.

Have you heard about E3 Spark Plugs? Diamond fire technology for much better spark. The US EPA endorses them, saying these plugs actually make a difference in how the fuel burns, instead of just how long the plug lasts.

Who knows how long the old plugs have been in there, but they have been changed before (Bosch Super Plus came out) and wanted to see what they were all about. They promised a smoother running engine, more fuel mileage, and long life (5 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first for warranty).

Hit the jump to find out how they fared with me:
