Default Key Fob ?

Anyone here had to replace a Key Fob. My #1 has gone inop. and it is not the battery. They are available very reasonably all over the web, but I'm curious about programming it. Most sites describe it as a dealer only program, but I've also have read a detailed description on how to program it. I believe that it can be done but all remotes will need to be done at the same time as programming the new remote renders the originals to be inoperative. Can someone confirm this?

Thanks. That'* exactly what I needed to know. Guess I shouldn't have been so lazy and actually looked over this site more before posting. The forums for the automotive enthusiast alone make the internet a wonderful thing! Thanks again.

OK, so now I've got 2 replies. One for diy and one for dealer only. I'd hate to take the car to the dealer only to watch him do exactly as the tech article describes. Any others?

1993 has more experience than I do with this so maybe I'll let him take over. Based on what I read in that Techinfo, I thought maybe that would help you out.

I guess it'* back to the tool room for me!!!!!!!

Pat'* right. It needs a Tech II to program them. Some have used various forms of deception to get the dealer to do it free of charge.

A Tech II is required for programming the remote.
