2001 Cabrio
NOTE:  The FCC ID must match your other FOB; if you get a  different FCC ID, this won’t work.  If you don’t know the FCC ID, you’ll need to  go to the dealer to find out which one you need. The FCC ID’s I know of are  NBG730956 and M36HU01WT.  This is NOT for the Hella system.

Put  one key in the on position in the ignition (do not start) and put another key in  the driver’s door and turn to the unlock position (counterclockwise) and hold  til it beeps three times, about 10-15 seconds, then return to center position  (leave in the door).

Then,  hit one of the FOB buttons (if you have more than one, you must program all FOBs  at the same time or else ones that worked won’t work anymore).

The  horn will beep once for the number of FOB, example: 1 beep for the first FOB, 2  beeps for the second, etc.

Then  turn the door key back to left until the horn beeps three times to deactivate program mode, and remove the ignition key.

All  done, test your FOBs.

If  you don’t get a beep when you hit a button on the FOB, check the batteries in  the FOB.  Also, if your car didn’t come with any FOBs and you purchased them aftermarket, this will only work if you have a FACTORY alarm system.  There will be a white box behind the headlight switch.
