    i believe it's either 50, or 90 to program. i forget for sure. But there's two numbers that have to match up between the car and the fob. You'll have to go to the dealer to get those numbers. Otherwise, i think it's like 150 or 200 from the dealer for just the fob itself.

    you can call and ask when they're open, they usually have those numbers pretty ready at hand.

    Got to get another one. I will try to match the product numbers on the back to see what I get. Toyota charges like $60, but I was told that you can program it yourself with a sequence of events with the car. Never done it and not sure if it works.

    i know programing the key is different than most other cars, and it has to be done at the dealer, but i don't know for sure about a fob, i doubt it'd be in the shop manual but i'll take a look tomorrow when i wake up, it's been a long night....

    Good point. It was the Toyota key that I had to get programed an not the fob. I also have caddy shop manuals, but the hardest thing to find is detailed info on small issues. I can't find out how to take the armrest apart to fix the cup holder whenever it just decides to pop out. Not sure if it is broken or just dirty.

    I'm not sure about programming, but the fob is around $70. I priced it in Marion, Indiana at a Cadillac dealer.

    I just bought a #2 used 16259819 fob in great shape for my 99 Catera from seller siera456 who has a store on Ebay Motors. Needed a battery $1.80. Paid $34.99 w/free s&h and a buck or two more for insurance. Our local Caddie Dealer charged $40 to program. Give siera456 a call. He'll have the RKE for your car.

    Many of the local Locksmiths will have a tool that can program both keys and remotes...


    The catera being that its a european model (OMEGA) it has some high tech security systems and basically they need to hook up a Tech II Tool to it, and program the ECU of the car to recognize the serial number on the remote control or the chip in the key...

    Once you do that he car knows that the particular item has proper security permitions to activate specific functions in the car.

    Also there is a difference in the Security Systems, 97-99 had a different system from the 00-01 systems... so be carefull which ones you get.. .

    I looked at a friends 99 Catera and his key had a chip inside that was twice the size of the one in my car!...
