Just bought a 97 ssei. Only got one remote with it. Do i need another with same number on back, or can I get another one that looks same and reprogram? Figured I better know before I look for a second one.

Got me there... ...I'd say with this method, you prolly wanna stay with another like remote. If you get an aftermarket one, there would be different programming methods, I'm sure.

Yeah, I know if _I_ was 1/3rd of a mile away from my car, _I'd_ want to unlock and start it, too...

They are pretty common, tho, across the GM lines (including Saturn) so you should probably be able to get a backup locally. And I'm 99% sure it has to be the same model

For any given year, I'd say so; the biggest difference might be whether it'* got a Pontiac logo on it or some other line instead.

In fact, I got the second one for my SSEi for free from the salesman; he had a dead one in his drawer and he just gave it to me. A little disassembly, re-aligning the contact sheet over the circuit boards so it lined up properly under the pushbuttons, and it was good as new.
