Unless you're awesome at electrical engineering, doubtful.

1. No you cannot reprogram your factory fob to an aftermarket, the frequency's are assigned by company and the company has to appley and essentally buy that paricular frequency, They make them this way so your fob does not and cannot be programed to open every car in the lot.
2. What aftermarket co. did you get. Most after market companies use only one frequency. I install DEI products, and certain top of the line model Key fobs will work with base model alarms for example.
