They need to be set to the computer in your car. The remotes are generic...

BUT Maybe it is in your Owners Manual... But otherwise... You are gonna have to pay to have them reset!

DIY Replacement Ignition KeySubject: DIY Replacement Ignition Key
Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key

Overview:

There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.

Symptoms:

Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:

Easy

Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15

Procedure:

There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.

Outcome:

Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.

Notes:

- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

Need to know how to program keyless remote on 98 cavalier


1997 Cavalier remote keyless entry programming.

All Remote Keyless Entry Modules may be programmed to receive four different
transmitters which all may be used to operate the remote control lock system on the
vehicle.

Also, severalvehicles, each with the same system may all be programmed to operate from the same transmitter or four different transmitters.

Step 1. Turn ignition off
Step 2. Ground the program pin.(within one second, Lock, Unlock and Trunk will cycle to indicate module ready for programming.)

**the program pin is the two wire connector plugged into the RKE reciever in the trunk of the vehicle at the Left Wheelhouse. Leave the main harness plugged in but unhook the two wire connector and ground the pins.**

Step 3. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons until:
Lock, Unlock, Trunk, and Horn cycles to indicate the transmitter has successfully been programmed. (This takes no more then 12 seconds)
Step 4. Repeat step 3 for the remaining number of transmitters
Step 5. Remove the ground from the program pin.
Step 6. Verify proper operation of the transmitters.

Keep in mind that 97-99 can be programmed by the owner, 00+ require DEALER programming with the scantool.

I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Just replaced the battery in a 2006 saab 9-3 and now the display is saying that the "key is unrecognizable". what do i need to do to make it read the key again?


You may have to take the car to the dealer to have them reprogram your TWICE unit using the TECH 2 to recognize the key. They will charge for that.

Re-programming SAAB 9-3 remote from anoter car.


try and find a saab authorized dealership, not a gm'er who may or may not know. If you have a remote, then they should be able to 'reprogram' ALL keysets at one time to the same signature/frequency that your car is set to.

Programing a remote on a 99 quest


first make sure,that the batter is ok. You will need to have both remotes while doing this.
1: get in and lock the doors with the power door lock
2: insert the key into the ignitoin repeatedly IN and OUT 6 times in a row or just keep doing so, until the hazard flashers flash on the dash board (observe the dash board while inserting key)
3: after the hazadrs flash TURN key into the ACC position/not start.(dash will light up) DO NOT START
4: with the key in ACC position, hit lock button on the remote. That will program that remote.
5: to program the other remote simply unlock the door with the door lock switch and relock it with the swithc and hit the other remote button.
6: done
