I believe you have to visit a dealer or someone with a PIWIS to reprogram it. Not as simple as Fords, Chevy, etc. where you just insert the key and turn on/off three times and chant...

Being used you may be out of luck. Unless it came with an accompanying id tag it can't be (re)programmed.

here (97-00) and here (01-04) are links to new remotes that come with the id tag that is needed for programming to give you an example.
