    I have been toying with the idea of designing a fob housing that will accomodate the board and button pad from the GM remote, and getting a quote on 100 pcs or so from a plastic manufacturer. This way, you would reuse your existing remote internals, so no programming or electronics to buy. I was thinking some soft touch plastic, square in shape, with a cross-section that is roughly ovoid. And with some kind of inset circle to put a logo on the back. I could get some logos made for all GM makes to make it have broad appeal.

    My boss had some keychains made a few years ago, that were pretty cheap and came out looking pretty good. So I still have that source.

    What do you guys think? Would there be any interest?
    Sounds great to me
    It is good for you that the new housings will work for other GM vehicles also.
    I think 100 pieces will be to few.
    I would want at least 3 myself.
    I doubt you would have a problem selling 2, to every customer.

    I thought he only said it won't work with the remote start ones?

    But yes, I'd be in for sure.

    I'm sure I'll be in for 2, seen what you can do and I'm sure they would be Quite nice.

    I am voting for a V emblem if you can get one to fit. If not I'm ok with the Crest.

    LOL...

    At least if you change the Grille it won't be for that Carbon Fiber look. I'm glad to hear you have limits!

    Seriously though I am looking forward to see what kind of case you make for the remote.

    Well, this is just a first draft. But it shows the design idea I am thinking of. I am very open to suggestions. I still have alot of details to iron out. Like making sure the existing button pad will fit, and of course finding out if it is financially feasible. I do have a source in Shanghai.

    So let me know what you guys think.

    Great stuff.
    I would only suggest a V Logo where you currently have Cadillac.

    I would be in for 3.

    Re: New keyless Entry remotes?

    I think it'll look weird bulging in and out while in my front pocket all day. Could I get one that stays the same size, Jimmy?

    Seriously though- Awesome work.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    If opinions are wanted;

    I like the Crest.

    It's only the Cadillac that does not do anything for me.
    V Logo instead of Cadillac FTW

    Re: New keyless Entry remotes?

    hey another nitpick Jimmy...

    right now those buttons are pretty much the same size and direction as the stock buttons. any way you could re-arrange them a bit? change their size or shape a bit? as long as they're pushing on the same button on the circuit board it would be just fine.
