Default Key Fob

I just bought a 2001 Bonneville SE and one of the keyless entry remotes doesn't work. I switched the batteries and it still didn't work. I'm guessing it needs to be reprogrammed. I know the sequence for my pickup but there is a different sequence for cars. Does anyone know what that sequence is? I don't really want to pay a dealer to do it so i figured i'd check here first. Great site by the way! thanks.

You need a dealer, that way no kid can go on ebay and program your car away from you.

Have a look here http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ob+programming

Default I Know how to reprogram the remotes.

Important! You must program both remotes at the same time, it erases all previous information.

1. Remove key from ignition.

2. Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel
3. Close all doors
4. Close the lift gate.
5. Turn the ign lock to the ACC postion.
6. Turn the ing lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within one second.
7. Open and close any door. (you should hear a chime.)

Important! After 7 seconds a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait appox. 14 seconds for a second chime.

8. Press and hold the transmitter Lock and Unlock buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
9. Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter.
10. Remove the ignition key from the ignition cylinder.
11. Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel.

I had the same problem when I bought my 2002 SLE and did some research on this web site but found that taking it to the dealer and paying the $25 to get it programmed was worth it. I bought the remote on e-bay for cheap. They will need both remotes because they have to program driver #1 and driver #2. Some vehicles have a sequence of buttons to press for programming but unfortunately this one doesn't but you can program your own key if you have a good key to start with but not the remote.
