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!!
