Default keyless remote programing 1996 Bonneville Se

I am in need of new keyless remotes for a 96 Bonneville SE and programming instructions. I have an old remote from a 1996 Chevy Lumina? any chance that would work? Can anyone help me with information?

Thanks

I doubt that the Lumina remote would work but the programming instructions for the bonneville are easy; you'll need a length of wire (about 12") with tiny alligator clips at either end. Clip the alligator clips to the tiny #4 & #8 metalknobs in your OnBoardComputer connector that is located just below the dash above the brake pedal. [There are two rows of metal knobby things in the OBC connector and only on one side are there the #4 and #8 slots that have the metal connecting points so this part is not difficult. Your alligator clips have to be real small though.]
Get in the the car. Turn the key on. The locks should close and open on their own if you made a good connection with the alligator clips. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the remote at the same time for about 30 seconds until the locks open and close on their own. Do the same with each remote for the car. Turn off key. Remove clips. Done!

I wanted to say too that remotes via ebay are easy to acquire and relatively inexpensive:I paid $52CAD for a new remote that the local dealer valued at $130CAD.

Verify the FOB aka remote numbers from the back of the lumina ones to see if they will work on your car.

(search FOB and you'll find a thread with all the years and numbers, or it'* in Techinfo..I forget)

Ebay is a good source for remotes. I think the last couple I picked up were around $10-15

Look for the numbers on the back. There should be something like AB00303T. You want to make sure the model / FCC numbers match. It doesn't matter what car it comes from just that the number is the same. I am currently using one from a buick.

96 does not use the ABO0303T...

What does the back of the Luminas remote have on it? iirc the W Bodies for 95-96 may have still been using the ABO0104T

No luck with the Lumina Remote.

As it turns out I took the car to a dealer and they tried to program a new remote..they were going to charge me $145.00 parts and labor ( iknow that'* a rip off but I was desperate.) They couldn't get my car to program. The original owner put a Pursuit (brand) after-market alarm/keyless entry system in the car and some of original wiring for door locks etc. appears to have been altered, that may be the reason the GM Dealer couldn't get it to work? I also took it to a Alarm place that supports Pursuit..they couldn't get the alarm into program mode.

Does anyone have any wiring info on a 96 Bonneville? or any suggestions. I can get a new after-market system installed for around $225. I'm not afraid to try it myself but I'm really in the dark as to what wires need to be spliced into etc.
