How to Reprogram My Autopage Remote Car Starter

by Matthew Fortuna

As automobile technologies advance into the remote-control world, safety and convenience have been among the chief beneficiaries. Autopage is a leader in keyless entry, remote start and alarm systems for cars across the United States. The company's car starter offers a remote way to start your car from up to a couple hundred feet away and allows you to access your vehicle's locks, trunk and panic alarm.


Step 1

Enter your vehicle and close the doors and trunk behind you. Have the remote starter and your ignition key in hand.

Step 2

Insert the key into the ignition and switch it from "Off" to "On" three times, ending in the "On" position after the third cycle.

Step 3

Push the valet switch on your Autopage alarm twice. Hold the button on the second push until you hear a chirp, signifying that the programming sequence is ready. The valet switch is located near the bottom of driver's dashboard, where the alarm is set up.

Step 4

Press any button on your keyless remote starter. The vehicle will respond with another chirp to indicate that the programming was successful.

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 with any additional remotes if necessary.

Turn the key in the ignition back to the "Off" position once you have finished to end the programming sequence.
