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.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Did you program the new key fob ?
Remote Transmitter Programming
NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification
Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/ Keyless Entry Remote Fob Replacement
I have the 2010 Toyota Venza push to start. I lost the original key, so i bought a new key with the remote and its was programmed successful but this remote only had the three buttons on it, instead of four buttons ( Including the Hutch button). So i bought another new remote with the four buttons today and I want to know if it will work when i switch the programmed key into the new remote?
I own a 2007 Buick Lacrosse, but I imported it to Paraguay, South America. Now I bought a new Engine Start Keyless Entry Remote from Amazon, but here we do not have any GM dealer to program the unit.
I really need help to program the keyless remote control, I will appreciate very much your help.
It sounds like your FOB needs to be reprogrammed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org around thursday and I will try to email you the programming instructions for that, If I am not able to you will need to call a locksmith with a T-Code or MVP Pro key programmer or DODge to programm your remote to your ECU
Try reprogramming the remotes. Here are the instructions for the procedure. Hope it helps. Cobra!
NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) must be

into the RAP module, perform the following steps:
Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.
Turn the ignition switch (11572) from OFF to RUN eight times within ten

wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to
respond, refer to Inspection and Verification.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after
step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been
programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors one

Believe it or not, the information and instructions for reprogramming your particular model of vehicle is provided in your owner's manual. The dealer does not need to be involved unless you have lost all your programmed and programmable keys.
