: 98 keyless entry

01-31-05, 02:13 PM
Can anyone tell me what the part numbers are for keyless entry fobs that will work with my 98 Catera? I have seen the following pairs and parts and I am confused

#1 #2
09353029 09353039
16183016 16193066
16259819 16259829

The previous owner of the car I now own gave only one key and no remote fobs with the car.

You have to go to the dealer and get a fob number that they can get from your VIN.

For what it's worth, I have a 98 and my #1 FOB is P/N 16259819 and the #2 is 16259829. I got the car with the #1 FOB and bought the #2 FOB on eBay after much research that said that was the correct #2 for my original #1. Hope this helps

Both my key fobs have the same numbers as well. #1 16259819 and #2 16259829. Hope this helps.

By the way, even if you buy the correct FOBs for a good price on eBay (the #1 FOB is always less expensive than the #2 FOB, probably because there are more of them around), you still have the privilege :rolleyes: of visiting the dealer and paying him to use the Tech2 to program the car to accept the remote. Should not cost more than $30 for the programming and they should do both of them for that price. I paid $10 + shipping for my #2 FOB on eBay. Have seen them sell for over $30. Patience is rewarded :)
