Default Key Fob 1 and/or 2

As you may or may not know... I recently bought an 03 Bonnie. It did not come with any key fobs. Through my research and inquiring, I have found that there are 2 different types of fobs for the 03 Bonnie (as well as others, I assume), and as many as 4 key fobs can be programmed. My question is how many of each can be programmed. I just purchased 2 fobs, both "key fob 1". Will I able to program and use both? Or just one? Any help would be appreciated. (By the way I already know that I have to go the the dealer to program these.)

We had to get extra Fobs for Kendra'* car. The dealer programmed one that they "found" from another car and just programmed it as Fob 2 (I had Fob 1).

Rogue,

Was it Fob 1 or Fob 2? There is a difference... They have 2 different OEM part numbers.

Just F.Y.I.

I just had 2 key fobs programmed and they are both "Key Fob 1". They both work great. I guess this answers my previous questions.

Rogue doesn't mean necessarly "fob 1" and a different type "fob 2". We programmed both "fob 1'* " as driver 1 and driver 2. Like my fob for my car sets driver 2 options and Todd'* fob sets driver one options. Does all this make sense?

The only differance is the number in the plastic on the back. Fob 1 has a 1 on it, and Fob 2 has a 2 on it. Either can be programmed as driver 1 or 2.

According to webster, one of the deffinitions of a Fob is "an adornment that hangs from a watch chain" This could be my only guess. Of course it might stand for something too. Who knows?
