Programming Keys without Scan Tool
Hey everyone its been a while since I last posted but I wanted everyone to know that I successfully programmed a new key for my 2000 SSEI without a scan Tool. The only reason I am posting this is because it seems like everyone thinks you can not do this.
Just so everyone knows I bought the key on ebay for about 15 dollars with shipping and brought it to my local hardware store to get it cut for 2 dollars. After that I read in my repair book that I have to insert a scan tool and go through a bunch of stuff with that. However, all i did was insert my old key and turned the acc. on (not the engine) and waited about 5 seconds. I then took out the original key and inserted the new key and turned it to acc. on (not the engine) and waited 5 seconds. After that i took out the new key and put it back into the ignition and started the car.
I dont know if I got lucky or what but i thought I would share with everyone that It is possible to program new keys to a 2000 Bonneville. I am also going to try to program new key fobs this weekend if they ever arrive. Ill let everyone know if I succeed or not
