New Transmitter Programming

1. With the alarm system disarmed and mobilised, switch on the ignition. Note that if the transmitter key codes have been wiped, the alarm must be disarmed using the touch key.

2. Insert a touch key into the receptacle on the tunnel top switch panel. The alarm tell tale will light steady.

3. Press, simultaneously, both buttons on the new transmitter key for about 10 seconds, until the tell tale in the key stop flashing and goes out. When the buttons are released, the key tell tale will light steady.

4. Press either one of the transmitter key buttons; the transmitter key tell tale will blink, and the alarm tell tale on the fascia will go out for one second.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all other transmitter keys to be used, up to a max. of four.  When all keys have been programmed, switch off the ignition (the alarm tell tale with go out).

Means you have to re-program your existing key when adding additional ones.

If you still have issues with the Cobra, Sir Lotus on the Lotus Talk forum is an excellent resource. I bought new remotes and custom remote cases from him. Very helpful. He has links to the cobra manuals in a sticky thread, and has additional information in the electrical section. 

As mentioned above, if you don't have the touch key the unit has to be sent to him (or someone else with the specialized knowledge and equipment) for programming. 

Problem; No available Touch Key
Solution; Alarm ECU needs to be sent to me for programming the inclusion of Touch Key which is supplied.
