OK some know that I just bought a 2002 Impala. I did not get any key-less entry remotes. I have found some on E-bay for a good price but it says I need to check with a dealer to see if my particular vehicle is equipped to use key-less. Is there anyway I can find out without having to call a dealer. I am impatient and if I could find out tonight, I would order them.

Thanks!!!

possibly, mainly because if it was that easy to add a keyless remote system. I think there would be a lot of stolen impalas lol

just buy an alarm. my keys cost 50 for the first replacement and 75 after that...and thats just a key. the remote itself is 100+ for a replacement


buy a viper alarm for ~200 and your good to go...

um you can add a aftermarket keyless to your car. if you have power locks. the wires should be easy to get too. and will probably be cheeper if you go after market. then trying to go througt the dealer.

Thanks to everyones advise. My wife is going to call the dealer in the morning. If they say it does have key-less, I may try the the E-bay thing. I think its worth the $25.00 to at least try.

There is a way to program it yourself. Let me see if I can find the directions.

" Important: If the vehicle has more than one keyless entry transmitter, ensure that all of the keyless entry transmitters are programmed during the same programming sequence. Any keyless entry transmitters that are not programmed will not work.

-Open the trunk.

-Pull aside the right side compartment trim in order to gain access. You will see a small black plug on the end of a black and white wire, taped to the main wiring harness with electrical tape, about half way between the base of the antenna and the rear of the car.

-Use a jumper wire with alligator clips in order to ground the RKE programming connector (make sure you have a good connection). The door locks will lock and unlock. This action indicates that the RCDLR has entered the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.

-While the programming connector is still grounded, program each of the keyless entry transmitters, one at a time. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously on the first keyless entry transmitter. Hold the buttons for 10 seconds. The door locks will lock and unlock. This action indicates that the keyless entry transmitter has been programmed.

-Repeat Step 4 for the remaining keyless entry transmitters. You may program as many as 4 transmitters.

Remove the jumper wire from the RKE programming connector terminal.

Verify that the keyless entry transmitters operate correctly."

that's it for a 95-99 monte carlo, idk if it's the same. Probably not?

hmmm...I doubt its the same. Newer GMs are a b1tch. Everytime someone comes into the shop where I work, and they want us to do something like that we send them to the dealer. Needless to say, they usually come back to us once the dealer gives them the price.

Well, my wife called the dealer with the vin number and they told her that our car was not equipped for keyless entry. So I am just going to go to a local shop and have them install one. Thanks for everyones help!! :) :)
