    08' Key fob

    My wife and I ordered an 08' escalade. We have heard that the key fob was redesigned. Has anyone seen one?? I was hoping it is the new GM 2-way fob with the LCD display.

    I havent seen one, but I'm pretty sure they are supposed to be coming with the 08 models. Nice luxury addition.

    Covered in another topic already. This is one from a 2008 STS, but give or take a button or two, and it's the same thing.



    And, from what's been said, if you have a model with the older one ('07 that would be), the new ones SHOULD just program right up. No one's confirmed it, but it should be true.

    Too bulky, I wouldn't want that in my pocket.

    It's really not that different than the current one, just a little more rectangular.

    If you're again referring to that key fob with the screen and data readouts that too many people are confusing with stock, it's a GM accessory that essentially can be set to any new GM vehicle (give or take a few, with older electronics, I believe).

    I asked at my dealer yesterday. I don't think they know about it. Said once my 08 gets in they will try to look it up using the vin. Time will tell or we will find it first. Good luck with this one.

    I haven't seen an Escalade yet for '08 but I have had my hands on that STS key fob.
    I suspect we'll see more and more of those appearing.
    Most of what we are getting now is '08.

    Re: 08' Key fob

    The key is pretty classy. When I picked my 07 up in July, they had misplaced one key. So they ordered two for me (because I asked for an extra) and they ended up giving me the pictured keys with the colored emblem, versus the OEM 07 key . Too bad they did not misplace the remote too...
