Does anyone have access to the procedure needed to reprogram the keyless entry remotes for a 97 park avenue? The pin4 to pin8 grounding thing only works for 98+ cars. There seems to be a procedure that is unique to the 96-97 cars. Thanks.

It worked for my 96.

Unfortunately the Park Avenue has a different procedure in the 96-97 model year. The pinout of the obdII port is different between the Park Ave and my Riv.

PostSubject: Keyless entry remote has stopped working...   Thu Jun 12, 2008 7:20 pm

The Keyless entry remote for the wifes 99 Riv has stopped working. I replaced the battery but it still does nothing.

I have a couple of remotes for other vehicles that I could use if I could reprogram them...

What are my options?
How much does the dealer charge to replace this part?

Thanks for any tips.

I have used the search and been reading the archives...
Found the instructions on how to reprogram by shorting pins 4 to 8.

I have two remotes for other vehicles that look identical.
Can I just reprogram one of them for the Riv?

I was just coming back to tell you to search "keyless" on this site and you'll find it. Yes you can program only one but I would program two this way if a battery goes dead you have a back-up. But remember we can program up to four transmitters to work on are vehicle at once wink

According to the info I found on a ebay ad that sells the remotes for the Riv. the remotes I have for the "other" vehicles wont work. They have a different FCC ID# than the Riv.

I guess I will by one off of ebay and program myself.
Meanwhile I will try and round up one of them fancy fused jumper wire hickey dodgers. Where can I get one of those?

Thanks for the replies.

Bought a remote from the junkyard for $10.00. I have not tried reprogramming it yet.

I just asked for one for:
96-99 Riv, PA, Lesabre or Bonneville.

I also stopped at RadioShack and bought a fuse holder with two wires made on it that I will make a fused test jumper with.

I know I probably dont need the fused test jumper but I am going to try and use it anyhow.

Done
My test leads on my fused test hickey were too big for the connector so I used a paper clip.

The connector is mounted upside down compare to the picture in the Manual?

#1 is bottom right
#8 is bottom left


Anyhow.
Problem solved.

I have been trying to get my car into program mode and it will not.
I took it to the dealer and hooked it to the Tech 2 and it still wouldn't go into program mode.
Any help for this one?

Verify the FCC ID Code on the back of the remote is:KOBUT1BT.
If the code is different it wont work

Make sure you are following the directions for the instructions.
For instance if you dont have the door closed it wont work.
If you turn the switch off before removing the paper clip it wont work.
Be positive you have pins #4 and #8 shorted. It would be easy to get the pins wrong...

The #4 and #8 pins WILL have the metal conductors in them, so if you look at the pic of the connector above and compare it to yours, you should be able to find#4 and #8. If you count in any direction on either row there is only one combination of pins in the fourth and eighth positions that have the metal conductors in them. scratch
Keep in mind your connector might be upside down compared to the pic above.

I hope this has not muddied the water even more...

I did find 4 and 8. I did not get program mode when I hooked them up, and now I don't have my instruments or heater working. I cant seem to find the fuse for them.

If you blew the fuse, you must have shorted the wrong pins.

You should be able to find the fuse location by looking in the owners manual.

PostSubject: 1995 Riviera Key FOB/Remote Programming   Thu Jan 08, 2009 9:33 pm

I bought a new replacement remote for our Riviera from www.keylessride.com

They have E Bay auctions. I ended up paying $0.99 for the remote and $9.99 for shipping.

The instructions they originally sent me were incorrect so I got these via E Mail and figured I will share:

I tried doing this exact thing. I ended up somehow screwing up my gauges, odometer, and climate control. I know for a fact now that I touched the right pins. Would touching the wrong pins cause me to burn out the computer or something?

I've never had to do it, so I am not positive but I thought on the later years you had to jump the wires at the security block somewhere under the rear deck.

I believe you can also just use a metal paperclip...
