The company that I had successfully purchased many remotes from over the years is no longer ok. Per my last experience it was clear they had sold the business to another party and that party totally screwed up a good thing. As a result, I deleted their Contact information in Outlook and don’t even remember their name–although I would likely recognize it.
I’ve come across a site that does appear to be reasonable and responsive ('99 Suburban $39.99 + $2 shipping).
Anyone have a current killer company?
(Edit) Uh Oh. I just downloaded the programming instructions. Whereas my prior replacement Fobs simply required following an ignition/hold down lock/etc sequence, these instructions indicate a necessity to mess with OBDII(?) jumper wires which for me seems to be totally above my pay grade!
- Locate the Data Link Port. It is located under dash drivers side. Be sure you know
which pins are 8 and 4.
(Note port is wider at top) Your OBDII port will not
have numbers, use this diagram for reference.
They show an image of the the port with numbers 1-8 top and 9-16 below
Make sure there are metal contact pins in terminals 8 and 4. Connect 8 to 4 with a suitable jumper wire (leave the jumper wire connected throughout the programming procedure). Make sure you know which terminals are 8 and 4. The vehicle will respond by locking and unlocking the doors to signify entering of programming mode.
Press and hold both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the first transmitter to be programmed. After about 15 seconds, the vehicle will respond by locking and unlocking the doors. Release the buttons on the transmitter.
Within one minute, repeat the previous step on the remaining transmitters to be programmed.
Remove jumper wire applied to the OBDII Port.
