Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.
Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?
If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).
THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar: If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys. 1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys. 2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside. 3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car. 4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running. 5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit. 6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done. 7 turn car off and reassemble keys. 8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.
(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)
The fob may need to be reprommed to the car. Do the following:
Grab your working remote. Push the LOCK button five times, allowing exactly two seconds to pass between each press of the LOCK button. Insert the ignition key and turn it to RUN. Push and hold UNLOCK on the working remote for 6 seconds. Push and hold PANIC for one second while continuing to hold UNLOCK. Release both buttons at the same time.
Push any button on the remote to program it. Then push any button on the remote that was already programmed. It has to be reprogrammed. The remote is now programmed to the vehicle. Turn the key to OFF.
I am going to save you $400 here buddy. First make sure that the battery in you remote is good. Now here is Jaguars big secret, place key in ignition. Turn to position 1, now turn key up to position 2, then turn key back to 1, repeat this 4 times and you will here a ding sound. There you have it your remote is programed to your Jaguar. You must be fluid with it dont go to fast but unless its done perfectly it will not work. The ding sound is what lets you know it has worked. I had a 2002 x-type and when I bought it , it only came with 1 key hub which of course wasnt programed so I took to Jag and thats when they hit me with this crazy amount. They said $150 to test if your remote even works if it does the for another $150 they would program it for you. If your remote is bad though its $150 to test, $150 for a new key hub, and $150 to program it. And FYI we are not talking about a new key oh no. The key splits into 2 pieces $150 only gets you the remote side which is what you need to use yoyr keyless entry and trunk........ Dont ever loose the whole key bro $650 Be aptient until you find your rythem follow the steps exsactly Key in ignition pos 1 then pos 2 and repeat 3 more times giving you a total of 4 cycles through the process once you hear the ding soynd your good. You might have to repeat every once in a while but dont get yourself discouraged if your remote is already programed to you car then the process unprograms it and the process will have to be repeated. It works brother if you do it right. Good luck ;)
The BCM will keep 3 remotes in memory. It takes about 30 minutes to program it without a GM scan tool .The stealer(dealer) will usually do it for an hours labor whatever their rate is. To do it yourself : turn the key on till the security light goes off, press the remote lock button and hold it while turning the key off.Wait a minute then repeat the process 2 more times . The 3rd time the lights should flash and the horn honk and your done.
You are going to need to recalibrate the remote to the vehicle. As long as the remote works correctly which i think it should. It will actually tell you how in the owners manual. I am not current with the HHR as i have not worked on one yet. They must be reliable!
Programming When Remote control added or replaced. System malfunction. How Obtain all remote controls. Remove key from ignition switch. Close all doors. Open driver's door. Carry out the following within 24 seconds: Turn ignition switch ON and back to LOCK position 3 times. Remove key. Press and release driver's door courtesy light switch 3 times. Ensure doors lock and unlock. If not, wait 40 seconds and repeat procedure starting with driver's door already open. Press each remote control lock or unlock button twice. Ensure doors lock and unlock after each remote control operation. If not, proceed as follows: Press and release driver's door courtesy light switch once. Ensure doors lock and unlock twice. Repeat procedure starting with driver's door already open. NOTE: A maximum of 3 remote controls can be programmed.
Enter the keyless entry code on the door keypad 3 times. Locks will cycle down and up after the third time. Press and release the "lock" button. Locks should cycle again. May need to hold down lock button for 2 sec rather than press and release. Program up to 4 remotes. If cycling the key on-then-off works, you'll probably have to do it quickly 8 times and after the 8th time, locks will cycle down then up and press and release the lock button.
There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.
I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.
For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.
Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.
