I lost my remote and bought a new one from keylessride.com. I programmed the new remote using the direction they provided.

However, whenever I press the unlock / lock button my car chirps 3 time and the locks don't respond. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

For some reason it seemed that people tended to shy away from putting their input in this entry. But anyone, it works now. I don't know what happened ... I didn't drive my car for a couple of hours, went out and just pushed the button for the hell of it and it started working.

I believe that the only solution may be that you have to give the remote / car a little time to initialize. Sounds weird, but what else could it be?
