Keyless Fob Question

4 posts in this topic

I bought a 96 Bonneville today, and it came with 2 keyless fobs, but neither one work. I am going to replace the batteries first, and if that still don't work, is there a way to program them without jumping on the data box? I was looking online and that is all I can find.

Try this! Get a paper clip or a hunk of insulated wire with tiny alligator clips on both ends. Bend in a "U" stick them in the #4 & #8 metal knobs/pinholes OBD plug-in/port that is located just below the dash above the brake pedal. The #4 and #8 slots should be marked and on the same side of the two rows of pin holes. They should be the only pin holes with metal tabs inside of them. There also should be a diagram sticker next to the port that names off the pin holes #’s. Hop in the car, turn the key on and the locks should cycle (up and down) once to signify the computer is in programming mode. At this point, press and hold the lock and unlock buttons (together) at the same time for approximately 30-40 seconds until the door locks cycle up and won again (signifying the computer identified and programmed a signal from a remote). Immediately do this for the second remote after the locks cycled after the completion of the first program and then turn key off. They should be programmed after this. Remove the paper clip/wire and you should be good to go.

Let us know if this works! Good luck zamboni smile

Got it- they weren't marked, so I had to find #4 and #8- kind of a pain, but I finally got them to go. Only one of the fobs work, so I will have to look around for another one. Thanks Shack!!

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
