Does this appear to be the correct method for programming a keyless entry for a 97 X

A. Cycle ignition from OFF to RUN or ACC eight (8) times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN or ACC. All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode. Press any button on 1st remote transmitter. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible). Turn ignition to OFF. The door locks will lock then unlock to confirm programming.

I don't want to screw anything up so..

This is the style remote I have-

I think on my '97 I used 5 on-off cycles. You won't screw anything up as long as you press a button on your remote after the correct number of on-off cycles. The worst that would happen is you disable your remotes. Repeat the procedure to re-enable them again. I would do 5 on-off cycles though instead of 8 on your '97.

Robert is correct on the 5 times, also you must program all the remotes at the same time, and you have something like a 8 second window to do it in. <Let us know how it goes.
