programming key fob

Does anyone know if a key fob can be programmed for 2 different xb? I have an 05 and an 06 and need to get a fob for the 06 but if the one I have could be programmed for both that would be better.

Re: programming key fob

I do know if that can be done with the xB fob or not; however, since the fob is programmed to the car, and not the inverse, it does not seem likely unless both cars transmit the same code to the fob during the programming sequence and the fob pairs to both car's interface system. For anti-theft measures, that would not be logical.

You can reduce the number of keys by cutting a single key with each car's indents on opposite sides. This works for door and ignition locks which have only one set of tumblers. Of course, if the xB locks have dual tumblers, this would not work. The 2005 does not have a transponder key, if the 2006 does, it would be necessary to use that key as the common key. A small notch on one side of the common key would let you know which way to insert it in the door or ignition for each car. You would still have carry two different fobs.

Hope this helps. Others may have more information on this.

Not possible, even for a dealer. ECU encryption prevents it.
