No. The car learns the remote(*), not the other way around. From the sound of it, you have everything working on the car side (the "clunk-clunk" signifies that you've got it in Learn mode all right), but possibly your keyless-entry transmitter isn't putting out any signal.

Can you borrow a known good one from someone else to try out?

So I check with my friendly local Pontiac dealer (George White) here in Ames, and the parts guy won't give me the FCC ID number for the remote for my car , only the GM part number for a replacement remote (he says: "$117.00 plus they would have to program it for me") They are sooooo greedy! Well, to give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe he didn't have the FCC ID? Anyway, all those ads on E-bay that say check to make sure this remote is right for your car at your local Pontiac dealer......well not in this town!

Oh yeah, the Service manager told me that the Pontiac shop manual has no electric wiring diagrams in it, that it is a separate publication. Is that true? I hope not, cause I just ordered the full 3 volume set for my 92 SSEi on line. And it is largely electrical stuff I am concerned with.

That'* possible. Don't sweat the FCC ID anyway; there are plenty of '92 owners around here who can look at theirs for you.

Believe me, the set you ordered has all the accumulated Bonneville knowledge in it. (My favorite example to prove this is that you can even look up information on how to reupholster your seats.) As of the '93 manuals (which are a two-volume set), the second volume contains the electrical diagrams and troubleshooting charts. They're broken out by circuit function; the days of having one big fold-out page with a spaghetti drawing of the entire car wiring harness are long gone.

The books can be a little non-intuitive (e.g. Chapter 8 might be over in the second volume, so the first volume skips from Chapter 7 to Chapter 9 with no explanation) and reading them takes a little getting used to, but you'll end up knowing _way_ more about your car than the average mechanic does. Sometimes that'* depressing to think about...
