The 2000+ Bonneville OEM remotes can only be set-up using a Tech 2 scan tool. If you don't have access to one, you will require a trip to the dealer. Before you do this, you must confirm that your vehicle is equipped with the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR). This will be located under the rear shelf a short distance in front of the left speaker. It will have a connector that has four wires. Two will be purple, one will be black and one will be either orange or red. The connector on the end of the wiring will be blue. If you don't have this module, you will not be able to simply purchase remotes. There should be no reason you can't add it (if required), as long as you have the technical skill to do so.

You are correct. This is what the FSM has to say.

Quote:
Important : All Transmitters which are to be recognized by the remote function actuator module must be programmed in a single programming sequence. If the system is placed in program mode, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter. Up to four transmitters may be programmed. Do not operate or program the transmitters in the vicinity of other vehicles that are in the keyless entry program mode. This prevents the programming of the transmitters to the incorrect vehicle. The order in which the transmitters are programmed is important. The first transmitter programmed will be transmitter #1, and the second transmitter to be programmed will be transmitter #2. The number on the transmitters are for reference only: #2 can be programmed as #1, or vice versa. Additional unnumbered transmitters are also available. Use care to program the transmitters correctly.

1. Install a scan tool.

2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.

3. Use the scan tool RFA Module Special Function: Program Key Fobs in order to place the RFA module into Program Mode. The doors will lock and then unlock to confirm program mode.

Important : The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.

4. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock in order to confirm the programming of that transmitter.

5. Repeat the previous step in order to program up to 4 transmitters.

6. Remove the scan tool.

7. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
