    Does the GM number really matter? Key fob programming

    Okay so I just bought a new keyless entry for my 97 Cadillac deville d'elegance and I read some where about the gm numbers having to match. so I grabbed my new remote and my old one and compared the two now the canada one and the model/fccid match up but the gm number doesn't, does that matter?

    please respond asap as I only have a 14 day return policy on it.

    Thank you in advance!!

    Wrong forum. Your question has nothing to do with Site News or failed registration. Please read the text in each forum title to find out what type of questions belong where. Thanks.

    Moved to the proper year group Deville forums.

    There's a few YouTube videos that can help u with remote programming for ur 97 Deville

    But basically u have to enter the cars diagnostic mode and select RFA

    I've been researching this since I bought a new key fob off craiglist but...

    If no one has given u the procedure by the time I get off work Ill send u the STEP BY STEP Guide when I get home around 630 pm est. roughly 9hrs from now

    Fairly simple process for your Deville but jus dnt f it up or you'll be visiting the dealership at cost!!!
