Default What is the final word on Keyless entry remote programming?

I know this has been beat to death for the 99'* and older but I have looked at every post and everything in the TECHINFO and there are mixed opinions on how to program your own remotes for the 2000'* and newer.

One user is adamant that you have to go to the dealer and get them to program your remotes but I came across another post that tells how to do it yourself, starting off with removing a BCM PRGRM fuse.

So what'* the final word on programming a 2001 Keyless entry remote?

...and on a related topic where can I find info on programming your own PK3 key after you get it cut?


Thanks,

Paul.

There may be some confusion here about what needs to be dealer programmed. There is a procedure in your manual to program the remote for such things as seat position, mirrors and so forth. Very straight forward and menu driven.
However, to customize your DIC display, you do have to go to a dealer for that. For example, remote 1 could say "Paul" and remote 2 could say "Paula" on the DIC.

There is a learn procedure for the new key once it is cut. You will get it cut at a dealership (only legal place anyway) and they can give you the procedure. Takes like 30 seconds and involves turning the key to on a few times without starting the car. I don't remember exactly as its been a while since I did mine.

The DIC information can only be programmed with a tech 2.

I've never programmed my FOB'* so i'm not sure of its procedure.

The memory of seat position, radio, mirrors etc I have done already and works great.

Concerning the DIC, I saw tha I can change the driver name and I may have that done some day but I was refering to the Keyless remotes and how to program them in to the memory of the car.

How do you program a new remote to be recognized by your car?

That'* what I am asking, who knows the learn procedure?

A locksmith who is selling SK3 blanks on eBay indicates that any good locksmith should be able to cut a key, he is also sending the learn procedure with the key. My local dealership want'* $100.00 for a new key and programming, no thanks.

Getting a key cut, and getting a key FROM a hardware store are two different things.

How much did you pay for your key?
