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!!

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
