Trying to program a new keyless entry without an old on available.

Hey guys/gals. I did a search and didn't come up with much, or maybe i need to look harder. But, when i bought my truck last year (2004 ram 2wd) it came with a keyless entry keyfob but it does not work. Its the right one, and it does work because i checked at the local parts store with the testy light thing. I think i read on a google search(and on youtube videos) that you either need the old Keyfob or you have to take the thing to a dealer to get it programmed. I really REALLY don't want to do that. But if that's what i have to do i will. If there's a shortcut, I'm all for it.

Thanks in advance!

Study the manual and maybe try one of those shops that install security systems and stereos. Talk them to see if they know anything.

Why can't I get the vision of the Griswald's old station wagon out of my mind?

If you were up here I'd offer to do it for you. Know anyone with a DRBIII or DRBIII emulator software out there?

Try a locksmith. Some have the equip. to program and may be cheaper than dealer.
