Question about Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Buick LaSabre that I had an after market remote starter installed. it is a Commander Model 850 made by Driven Technologies. One of my remotes lost its program and doesn't work. I bought a new remote on-line with the same FCCID and it looks exactly the same however it need to be programmed also. I can't locate the technician that originally installed it working through the Ford dealer in my area and they can't help me either. I'm familiar with the programming techniques but the variations are many and I don't know which one to try and I don't want to mess up my car security system either.

Your local Bestbuy Car Audio installation technician can reprogram and since they sell all models of starters and security systems they have access to manuals for all systems that your dealer may not have access to. I would take it to them and drive to the garage area/doors where they pull cars in to do installs and try and talk to one of the techs directly and ask before going inside and having a sales person be a middle man. Sometimes if its an easy fix they will just simply tell you how or you can slip them a quick "TIP" and they will do it on their break, or tell you to meet them during their LUNCH break somewhere... Sorry I couldnt answer the specific question but had similar issue on 2001 Suburban and this is how I got it fixed.

2004 Ford Taurus. Installed after market Prestige starter. model: APS-620N. Door lock and unlock work. Trunk works. Parking light do NOT light up when programming or locking/unlocking doors. Not receiving...

If this problem started just by changing the starter, either there is a wire unhooked or somehow switched, I do not think the starter would cause that as long as it was the right starter. It should have been identical to the old starter.
