Is there a method to tune in a magic button door opener for a GU Patrol without going to the dealer?? It is the one with two buttons big to close and little to open. Type A.

I am giving a spare to a friend who does not have one. Dealer wants $40.00 to tune.

Thanking you,

Seanny

If "tuninig" means that it has drifted off frequency, you could try tuning the transmitter whilst pressing either button, but the tuning on these things is very sensitive and a small turn of the trimming capacitor could send it off frequency by anything from 1 to 10Mhz rendering the transmitter useless until retuned correctly. Not recommended. A frequency counter or better yet a spectrum analyser is required as well as the known frequency you are trying to tune to, probably around 303Mhz. Perhapse if you know anyone into ham radio, they should be able to do it for you.

But, you could also mean "coding" which is different. Each radio transmitter has it's own radio code so as you can't open another GU with your control. This is something you cannot change without the necessary data sheet for your transmitter and/or special equipment. Your Nissan dealer would not be able to do it, they would have to send it away, hence the $40 charge.

On Ford cars you can tune in another unit, but you need two units to initialise the car computer to accept the new one. Seems strange that the Fords can do this and Nissan cant, maybe they are having a lend of you.

Thanks for the responses, I suspected as much. Looks like my friend will have to cough up to Mr Nissan.

Drive safely over Easter - I do not want to see you on TV.

I suppose we have become a bit lazy and tech crazy.
Why not just stick the ignition key in the door key hole and turn it. Opening the drivers door opens all doors.Carpe Diem

Toyota remotes can be coded by switching the ignition on and off 20 times in quick sucession - The indicators flash 20 times to indicate you are in programming mode, and you have about 30 seconds to press the buttons on up to 3 remotes to programe the body computer to recognise them. Will this work on a Nissan ??? NFI!!!!, To my amazement this is actually included in the 100 series owner's manual. If you haven't already looked it might be wortth reading the instructions... ;-)

Hi there,

Owner's manual recommends the dealer option.
