  1. I can’t find the green programming button on the side of the unit under the drivers seat. Which side of the u it is it on? Where can I find the pencil size hole to reprogram? Thank you.

      If you can’t find the security system control box on the floor under the seat then most likely your vehicle isn’t equipped with this system. It was something that was installed at the dealership on cars where the customer paid for the security upgrade. If you have this remote with your 97 LX450 and can’t find the module under the driver seat, that means the technician didn’t put the module in the correct location and it could be under the passenger seat or inside the dash somewhere.
