My manual indicates that on Buicks, the doors lock when you shift out of park. (5 pages in Buick FSM - Pontiac manual is rather sparse). Also could someone supply a .jpg of a factory fob ? Expect they have a Pontiac logo.

Default fob

The jump connector is clipped into the top left corner of the glove box.
Unclip it and jump it with an aligator clip to program.
My keyless always works excellent and I have added a second remote. (2 max) on a 90. The ID #'* are ABO 0104T

My locks never activate when the ignition is turned on or shifted out of park, so if I do have the module, it must be damaged. I do have the factory alarm system. What will happen if I get an aftermarket keyless system installed?

from the factory the 88-91'* do not auto lock the doors in any situation.... if your SSE does that if must be something aftermarket. i do know the olds and buicks of this era did do this. just not the bonnevilles.

also the alarm system does not use the same computer has the RKE. the keyless entry is located above the glovebox, whereas the computer for the alarm system is way up underneath the steering column.

The 88/89 did not have RKE from the factory on any model of the bonnneville. 1990 was the debute year for RKE on the bonneville SSE.

If the anti-theft (factory alarm) package is there, the new RKE will need to send a signal to the module so that the alarm does not go off when you open the door. Looking at the 8a-132 and 8A-133 schematics, it looks like two wires go from the RKE to the antitheft module - one to arm and one to disarm. Disarming appears to be done by applying ground to pin H (light green wire) on the theft-deterrent-module but needs to be diode-protected from the key-lock circuit (8a-133-1).

Note: I have studied this to add a RKE to my 88 Reatta which has the anti-theft module but no RKE. It won't act exactly like the factory unit (push unlock and both doors will unlock instead of just the driver'* door) but close enough. Have added to our Bonne SE but it had neither to begin with so was easy (all needed signals are around the glove box - maybe that is why the factory put the RKE there).

you are very right padgett! whatever you do, dont disconnect the RKE permenantly.... if you disconnect it. you will lose your power locks. it seems to make a circuit threw there.

Well, I know it is GM material. Nothing aftermarket. My dad had this car in '91, and he had the fobs.. and although I don't know what they looked like, I do know that it was at least Dealer Installed.. maybe Factory. But, either way, it locks my doors when the ignition is turned on. I am going to fix that, to only do it when I shift out of park. That has to be the biggest pain in the *** when I first got it working again [broken wire]. I locked myself out of that car countless times.

For $233 i had an aftermarket alarm/ remote Start w/ keyless entry and trunk release intsalled i havent had a problem with it yet ... it was a must have since my last car turned up in Detroit with a broken window and no gas... i dont regret it for a minute

For funsies: American-spec 1985 and such Toyota Cressidas had factory alarm systems. No key fob however, just a horn that'* blare at you if you unlocked the doors unproperly, etc. Might the Bonneville'* anti-theft function the same way?

Similarly. My 88 Reatta has the anti-theft and sometimes when getting out of the car if you hit the "lock" button on the door as it opens, the alarm will trigger. Then you have to put the key into the doorlock and unlock it to turn the blat blat blat of the horn off.

89 was the first year of the RKE and I plan to retrofit with a factory unit (if I ever get the time since it has the proper signals and wiring to interface with the alarm.
