If your 1999 Grand Am was built late in 1999 you will have to go to a Locksmith or Dealership to get your remote programmed. If your 1999 Grand Am was built eary in 1999 you can use the programming instructions below.
1. Make sure ignition is in the OFF position.
2. Locate the programming connector in the trunk (drivers side). It is a plastic
connector with two wires leading up to it. The connector is not plugged into
anything. You may have to pull back trim to access connector.

3. The programming connector should have two terminals. Connect both terminals
with a suitable jumper wire. Make sure the terminals remain connected
throughout the programming procedure.

4. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote simultaneously. In response
the Keyless Entry Module will cycle all the Door Lock Motors at once. Your new
remote has been accepted and all existing remotes have been erased.

5. Repeat the previous step for each additional remotes (including any exsisting remotes)
Do not remove jumper wire in between programming of remotes.

6. Remove the jumper wire from the Keyless Remote Connector.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

    You might get lucky and try this if the one above didn't work. it's for the 2000 Grand Am.

    1. Close the vehicle doors.

    2. Turn ignition to the ON position then OFF.

    3. Remove key from the ignition.

    4. Press and hold the driver side door lock switch in the UNLOCK position
    until step 8.

    5. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder and remove the key.
    (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder)

    6. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder and remove the key.
    (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder)

    7. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
    (Do not turn the ignition key in the lock cylinder)
    Leave key in the ignition cylinder.

    8. Release the door lock switch. The vehicle will sound three beeps in order
    to verify the Program Mode has been activated.

    9. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the keyless remote and
    hold unitl the vehicle beeps twice to verify that the keyless remote has

    been successfully programmed. This may take approximately 15 seconds.

    10. Perform the previous step (9) to program up to four keyless remotes, including any old ones.

    11. Remove the ignition key to exit Program Mode.

Will the ignition and computer of a 95 Grand Marquis work in a 2000 Grand Marquis

No. If you plan on this, you also need the key, ignition lockset, BCM/GEM, Instrument panel, and PCM. If you want to radio to work, you'll need it also. Not sure, but I believe the years you can use are 99 to 03. When changing a computer(PCM), you need all the security with it. Otherwise it is off to the dealer to have it programmed.

This is what I did on my 99 Grand Marquis. Maybe it will work for you.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 4 times within 3 seconds, with the 4th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds, press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cylcle to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF.

How do u find out the keyless entry code if u buy a used 99 grand cherokee ltd without the remote

These have to be programed with a Chrysler scan tool. Most likely only a dealership will have one. You can't program one with out the scan tool. If you need another key this would be the time for that as well as it needs to be programed by the dealer too.

Remote on '99 Jeep Cherokee not working...

Normally you can get the alarm to shut off by puttin ght key in the ignition or in the door and turning. The remote will need programed with the vehicle. Should run about 50.00 or so for service department to do this. My wife has a '99 cherokee and it did the same thing. I know the remote is the problem.
