If your car’s current remote is broken or you’ve lost it, you have another option other than going to the dealership to get a replacement. The iKeyless Universal Remote from Keyport works for over “1000 vehicle models, including 16 of the top 20 most popular vehicles, from 20 major car brands”. It works for models produced from 1997 through 2014, and contains the codes of 215 different remotes. You’ll need at least one working key to pair the remote to work with your car; in some cases, you’ll also need one working remote to complete the pairing. The iKeyless Universal Remote is $49.99 from Keyport. You’ll find a list of the supported cars on the iKeyless Universal Remote page at Keyport. (Unfortunately, my Subaru isn’t on the list…)
