Default Keyless entry for '93 bonneville

I know this has been brought up alot, but I tried searching the posts for this, and nothing suited my tastes. Anyhoo, I have a '93 bonne, sweet car, and I have the original fob for it. Whoever owned it before me used their nails to control all of the buttons so it'* looking pretty shabby. The FCC code on the back of it is ABO0302T. I can find ABO0303T, but I dont know if that will work with my car. Also, do the fobs for 96 and newer work with the 93'*, I'm thinking no, but I like those remotes better than the 93'*.

thanks

dave

Dunno, but if you can borrow somebody'* remote for a couple of minutes, it'* pretty trivial to put your car into Learn mode (jumper the bottom-left port to the upper-right port on your ALDL connector, per the instructions in TechInfo) and see if it will listen to that type of remote. There are a couple of other options you could follow up on:

1) Buy another correct replacement from eBay or from one of the on-line websites that specialize in used and reconditioned remotes

2) (I have no personal experience with this, but...) AutoZone'* been advertising what looks like some aftermarket outfit selling replacement remotes. Whether they're third-party units or reconditioned originals is not clear, but you could ask around. Again, if you have a paper clip with you, you can find out right there at the store whether the remote you're thinking of buying is one that will work with your car.

To be specific, the TechInfo article on programming remotes for the '93 Bonneville is

My understanding is that the FCC ID must match, or no go. Give it a whirl and answer a good question for us.
