Programing the button REMOTE portion of the key is simple.
You do need 2 keys. You must be able to lock the drivers door and have the red led alarm light next to the lock button blink. If it does not blink, the alarm does not know the door is closed and will not go into program mode. Put one key in the ignition switch, turn on, do not start engine. Close the door, use 2nd key, turn door lock and hold in lock position for 10 seconds. Release key to neutral position.
Press a button on the remote, within 2 seconds press the same button again, the turn signal lights will flash,
this indicates your remote matches the car system and is now recognized. Unlock door remove key from ignition.
So don't pay extra 99 cents to $5 for these instructions in hopes of getting the KEY to function with the car.
Instructions are only for the keyless remote, not the key.

I have a 2003 trailblazer and i bought a fob and it does not work after programing Everything thing works on my truck but the fob. Any ideas?


How was it programmed ? Was a scan tool used ?
Program All Key Fobs
To complete this programming operation, all keyless entry transmitters associated with the vehicle must be available for programming. Once placed into program mode, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased from memory upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter.
  1. Close the lift gate.
  2. Ignition ON, access the scan tool Lift gate Module Setup menu and select Program All Key Fobs.
  3. Follow the scan tool on screen instructions in order to program the transmitters. Select "Start" on the scan tool to enter the program mode.
  4. As each transmitter is successfully programmed, the scan tool will show how many transmitters have been placed into memory.
  5. When all transmitters are programmed, exit the program mode by selecting "Stop" on the scan tool. The vehicle will not respond to the transmitters until the program mode is exited.
  6. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
Program Individual Key Fob
If there are less than four keyless entry transmitters programmed to the vehicle, an individual fob transmitter can be added. This method will not erase previously programmed transmitters from memory.
  1. Close the lift gate.
  2. Ignition ON, access the scan tool Lift gate Module Setup menu and select Program Individual Key Fob.
  3. Select "Program additional Key Fob" on the scan tool.
  4. Follow the scan tool on screen instructions in order to program the transmitter.
  5. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

How do I program keyless remote?


You'll need to take to a GM dealer !
The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.
Install a scan tool. Turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF. With the scan tool, select Body. Select Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR). Select Module Setup. Select Program Key Fobs. Select the key fob desired to be programmed. Follow the scan tool on screen instructions. Remove the scan tool. Exit the vehicle. Operate all functions on transmitters to verify correct system operation.

Unfortunately the only way I have found is to have it done by the manufacturers proprietary software, I own and use numerous scan tools that have key copying capabilities and still have to send it off to the dealers for this operation.

My car radio needs to be reset. I have the code but don't know what I after I enter it.


The sequence of programming for 2001 VW Cabrio radio is:
1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.

For example: we have the security code "5079". Then:
3. By the no.# 1 key you will set up the first safe code digit. Push 5 times on the no.# 1 button. The "5" number will be setted.
4. By the no.# 2 key you will set up the second safe code digit. Push 10 times on the no.# 2 button. The "0" number will be setted.
5. By the no.# 3 key you will set up the third safe code digit. Push 7 times on the no.# 3 button. The "7" number will be setted.
6. By the no.# 4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit. Push 9 times on the no.# 4 button. The "9" number will be setted.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed.
The radio is now ready for use!

2001 town and country if i replace my ecm thats been programed to my vin what else to i do and what is flashing


Hi, flashing is the same as programming to the VIN. However, you will need to program your keys into the computer. After reading the following post, I think you may have to get the dealer to program your keys, as a special scan tool is needed to transfer the key info from the SKIM to the PCM:
