    Greetings-My gf's '96 850 wagon was in the auto body shop recently to
    repair deer damage. While there, apparently the lot kid really didn't know
    how to drive a stick and whaled the drivers door against something hard
    enough that the shop replaced the door and re-painted the entire vehicle for
    nothing. Anyway, when I picked it up the door unlocked chimes wouldn't shut
    off, gas door wouldn't open, and none of the interior lights worked and the
    remote entry didn't unlock. They took it back grumbling about having to take
    it to the dealer, but called bright and early the next day and said 'come
    and get it'. Seems the only change was the key fob was now programmed so the
    car "knew who I was" Everything worked fine, with my keys. My gf's keys
    won't unlock [or lock] and the manual lock will not work correctly. First
    step is to get it to recognize the keys then work on any other issues after
    that. Any know how on programming remote keyless entry? Thanks in advance

    It is in the owner's manual, but in case you don't have yours, try this:

    Close all doors, hood and trunk.
    Switch the ignition on and off, (pos II) within 10 sec, 5 times. Leave
    the Ignition "ON" the fifth time.
    Push one of the two buttons on the remote within 15 sec.. You will see
    the LED blinking for a moment.
    Program the second remote within 10 sec. after the first one. You can
    program max. 4 remote controls.
