Default Which replacement keyless entry remote?

I posted a few weeks ago about replacing my fried keyless remote, and learned that replacements must have at least some matching numbers...

Looking on eBay, I've had no problem finding matching FCC numbers (KOBUT1BT) for my fried remote... but the remote features are not always the same. For instance, some Cadillac remotes have a fuel door release instead of a panic alarm. Would the fuel door button activate my Bonny'* panic alarm, or would it just be non-functional? Same thing for GM sport-utilites... instead of the trunk release, that button is labeled "Rear 2x" on some remotes. Will that still open my trunk? Thanks in advance -

Also... I've seen remotes advertised as the #1 or #2 unit, mentioning that a person must have the matching one for the set to work properly. My remote does not have either number stamped on it... is that only for certain manufacture years?

Yea, you don't want a remote that has #1 or #2 on the back.....and certainly not a Caddy one! I just did a search on Ebay for pontiac remote and it came up with a whole bunch. Just verify the FCC ID is the same and the buttons match and you should be good to go.

These remotes would work great for you. Good price for two too!

Thanks CFoote. According to that auction, it looks like some remotes are made for Cadillacs and Pontiacs... but I'll play it safe and stay away from the Cadillac-only models!

The #1, or #2 on the back of the remote identifies Driver 1 ,or Driver 2. The idea being that two different drivers can personalize certain features (radio pre-sets, seat positions, security feedback, etc) through the Driver Information Center (DIC).
