How do I program my new Suzuki keyless entry remote to work with our new SUV?

We purchased an 07 Suzuki XL-7 today but there were no keyless entry remotes. We purchased one but don't know how to program it. Can anyone tells us how.

    those instructions are the ones that come in the manual. i have a 2008, same keyless system and instructions but didn't work. I read somewhere else that this needs to be done by the dealer. Anyone successfuly reprogrammed their keyless with this instructions? pls share.

    Took my 2007 XL7 to the dealer for 3,000 mile service. One remote did not work, the other did. Dealer replaced remote, but said they could not program it. I read the manual and followed the steps above, and the remote was programmed. A few months later, the other remote didn't work. Tried the same procedure, did not work. Called dealer and was told they would need to contact Suzuki for info. Never got back to me. Used the one remote that worked for 2 years. Now neither remote works. Go figure. Tried to "learn remote" several time, several days, etc. Nothing works. I've had it. Turning the car in at lease end, and will not miss the service from Suzuki dealers. The car itself is not bad. Inexpensive AWD, service SUCKS.

I bought a remote the other day and got these instructions with it. They worked!

1. Make sure vehicle is in Park
2. Press Vehicle Information button (has the icon of a car and an 'i')until 'PRESS *check mark* TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY' displays.
3. Press set/reset button. The message 'REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE' will display.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for about 15 seconds. A beep will sound indicating that the transmitter is matched.
5. To match additional transmitters at this time, repeat Step 3. Each vehicle can have a maximum of four transmitters matched to it.
6. To exit the program mode, you must cycle the key to LOCK.

Press the little button that has a picture of a the vehicle and the letter "i" scroll through until you get it talked about the remote option in the dash. Once this happens press the "check" button. At this point hold and a do not release both the lock and the unlock button simutaniously. You will hear one beep and then after 15 seconds or so you will hear another beep. the remote should work.

I work in a Suzuki dealer shop, and I tell you, there's no way to program a key yourself. The only way is with SDT (Suzuki Diagnose Tester) and a special key-programming module.
