Question about 2006 Pontiac Montana

My fobs need to be reprogrammed

The connections in my FOBs were corroded so we had to take them apart and clean them with alcohol - now the battery has been replaced and I can see that the FOB would work 'cos the panic button works, but it needs to be programmed for my vehicle - Dealership wants to charge me over $100 for the reprogramming. Our FOB controls locks and has a remote starter the locks are the most important to me

Your local auto locksmith would be cheaper than the dealer but it is worth noting some cars/fobs are self programming and in that case the instructions might be in the vehicle handbook.

The driver of one GM car showed me how he sat in the car and switched on the ignition and then operated the fob and the electronics talked to each other and the new fob was coded.

I suggest you make further enquiries...
Could be the large cost was for recoding the whole system. Sorry I can't help further, I really don't know much about such things.

Key fobs tend to hold their code indefintely. The batteries in them are probably burnt. Open up one of the fobs and replace the battery (hearing aid type) then they should work fine. Good Luck!~

Fob not working


If your Suzuki still has its original battery it probably will neeed replacing soon. If your fobs are "smart" it probably will be necessary to reprogram them after the battery is replaced. The current fob failure is likely related to the age of the battery

How do I program my remote key fob for a 2007 pontiac grand prix?


Hey Lisa,
You are going to have to take the car and the key fobs to the dealership .
They will need all of the fobs , as they are all going to need to be reprogramed at once ;
The fob on an 07 Pontiac only can be programed using a diagnostic scan tool .
They will connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn key to on position.
Select 1 body,
then select special functions
then select program key fob,
select the number of key fobs you want programed.
Press and hold the lock and unlock key simultaneously for about 15 seconds until the power locks cycle to confirm the remote is programed.

Hi! My name is Sharon and I have a 2009 Saturn Aura. Recently I have discovered that one of my key fobs works intermittently and on the spare, even after replacing the battery, does not lock/unlock the...


Hi, the key fob has contacts on a circuit board, much like a remote control for a tv, or a calculator. These contacts are what the buttons touch, to make it work. the buttons, or contacts may be dirty, with a carbon film on them causing the two buttons not to work, leaving only 1 functional. If you take it apart, much like putting a new battery in, you can actually pop out the green circuit board, and see the contacts. These can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Try cleaning the contacts, and the back side of the buttons. A re program is not in order, because you have 1 function, and will either work as a whole, or none at all. If cleaning does not work, You may need a new fob. Good luck...coop442000
