I just bought this '91 Caprice, neither of the remotes work, so I bought new ones especially for this model car, they came with program instructions, but I cannot find the programmer, it's supposed to be in the upper left inside trunk. There is a bunch of stuff with wires there, but I do not see the programmer, even had someone else help me look. I am mechanically minded and do follow instructions well, but where is it?

Re: Location of programmer for keyless entry remote?
You shouldn't need to find it. Your owner manual will instruct you how to program your keys.
usually, you get in the car, lock, unlock, lock the doors. turn the key from off to on about six times, wait for the lights to flash to tell you are in the program mode and then program each key. then the lights flash again if you are successful.
The dealer usually charges 1/2 hour to do this for you.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

DON'T TRY. REPLACE ALL CABLES BECAUSE IT WILL CAUSE ALTERNATOR NOISE ON YOUR CAR AUDIO SYSTEM- IT WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO THE ORIGINAL SET AND DOESN'T WORK FINE WITH OTHER.
DO NOT ASK MY HOW I kNOW THIS
That remote should not be able to be programmed by you, it needs to be programmed by the dealer using their computer. I know that some later and earlier models can be programmed by the user, but I did some research on this as i have a 96 as well and it seems the 96 was a dealer computer thing. If you in fact bought the remote from the dealer they should be willing to program it for FREE. Otherwise I was given a $30 estimate for the programming.

Note:Make SURE the battery is new. Instructions for programming ONE keyless remote fob. 1.Open the driver’s door & leave open. 2.Insert the key in the ignition. 3.Turn the key to the on and off position 3 times. 4.Remove the key from the ignition. 5.After door open chime stops, press the door open button 3 times. 6.After chime, press any fob key twice. 7.After second chime, press any fob key twice again. 8.After third chime, press any fob key twice again. 9.Press the door open button once. 10.The car should give another acknowledgement chime. 11.Test key fob. This DOES work. I just programmed mine successfully today, three hours ago.
If the remote is generic you will need the factory remote to "clone" the signal to the new remote.
With your oem pontiac remote you may need to visit any GM service center to have the remote set to the cars receiver. There are literally 100,000 different variables GM uses to ensure one remote can't work the wrong car. A typical key programming will run you between $30-$60 depending on how much greed the technician has. Some good technicians will do this job for free simply to make a customer happy so you may wish to call around.
