I went back to the dealership on my way to Canadian Tire and talked to them again. They told me that the whole remote is fried and even showed me where the wires will not solder together. So the cleaner would be of no use to me.
I than went out to a wreckers and bought a FOB and took it to the dealership and it too was not any good so I am going to resort to buying off that website that is advertising on here. Just have to give them a call to make sure it can be shipped to Canada. I think that is the easiest way to do it really. Buy one and than the worries are gone!
Thanks for the help though! I got someone else who is interested in the remotes from my 98 totalled car so maybe I can sell those and pay for part of the cost of the new ones!
If only the 98 FOB'* were the same as the 97 but alas, no luck. Story of my life!
