Default keyless remote problem

i have a 94 SSEi, my problem is that it came with keyless entry but the remote was gone long before i bought the car. i used the techinfo and tried 3 of the options, but the closest it had was 93, 95 and OBD II. When i tried the 93 i ended up blowing out a few fuses, when i tried the 95-OBD II i took out my battery.
i'm a doing somthing wrong or is the 94 different from all of them???
thanks in advance.

If I'm understanding this right, you are trying to program a remote of a different year for your car? If so, did you refer to the manual?
I don't know much about this and remote signals.

I believe that you must first be aware of the type of signals that the remote emmits.

Ohh, yes, that'* kind of expensive for that kind of work. I don't have the manual with me here, but if you follow the steps there, then there shouldn't be any problems.

I'm assuming that the dealer agrees with a programmable 1995 remote for a 1994 bonneville, right? What did they say about that, could that be done?

Oh god. Some people at some dealers are real idiots.

Why don't you post something in the Lounge, so you can get the attention of more experts???

Default Programming Remote

I just bought a remote off Ebay for my 94SE. It looked just like my original with the broken keychain loop except it says "Buick".

The programming was easy on my 94. I took a wire and grounded it to car body. Then I took the other end and conected it to the no. 8 wire on the diagnostic connector under the drivers side dash. On my 94, the no. 8 wire (they're not numbered that I could see) was the wire on the engine side of the connector furthest to the driver'* side. In other words, the front left most terminal.

When I touched the wire to the terminal, the doors unlocked. While holding the wire to the terminal, I pressed any button on the new remote and heard the locks actuate.

Disconnect the wire and you're done. That easy.

Maybe a 95 remote would work on a 94.
