You can program the key fobs yourself. The instructions are here on the org somewhere and probably easily found with a google search. I bought two off ebay when I had my 97 I30 and while I don't remember the exact programming instructions I do remember that it was very easy to do.
Wondering if ebay is the best bet to get a new one? How do you program it when it arrives? Any info would be much appreciated.
No, go to http://www.keylessride.com. You can get the factory match for about $79. I've used them twice and have had no problems with the remotes that I've bought. And they take less than 5min. to program.
I purchased a fob/remote on eBay about a year ago for less than $25 shipped and have had no problems with it. Most sellers will include the reprogramming instructions. Very easy to follow. Getting keys themselves, well that's a different story...
no man dont go to the above site listed its overpriced. go to google products and put your car year and model for ex. i will 2000 infinti i30 remote. and believe i found the same remote brand new with intruction for 35 and above listed web site said 60 something.
