Default keyless entry not working?

the theft light doesn't flash either, do I just need a new battery for the keyless entry or do I have to get it programmed again?

Try replacing the battery and see what happens. Do you have a second key fob you can ry?

mista_sse, If the left headlight doesn't falsh, that'* a seperate problem. You need to replace that left headlight capsule. Like Archon says, try a new battery or a different remote also. Does the mista have himself a new Bonneville? Gonna have to see some pics, bro.

jerks :P I'm talking about the little light that blinks red on the dash, It lets you know that the alarm'* on, that doesn't blink when I manually lock the door, or use the key to lock it.

Mista...don't listen to those two old guys.. they are playing with you.

No battery and the holder is not attached to the circuit board...not good

Three choices...
1. If you are really good. solder the piece back on.. (if you are good..you won't need me to tell you how)
2. PM me as I have two..I think brand new ones for your year
3. Ebay

Although as I remember..programmin for your year requires a dealer trip.

The only procedure that I've been able to find on programming them requires the Tech 2 or similar to get it into programming mode.
