1. Can one of those cooler/newer 2008+ DTS key fobs be programed to a 2006 DTS?

2. Will you be able to program the key fob yourself versus paying a dealer ship $50,000.00 to do it?

The current ( Original ) one has cracked in the back and looks like poo poo.

Thank you!

Yes. I bought a pair of the new ones on Ebay. You can program it yourself using the instructions in your owners manual.

They look so much nicer than the older ones in my opinion.

LOL at the "$50,000" dealership price. Anyway, what did the '06 key fob look like? Mind if you upload a picture?

I've seen those Fobs on Ebay for 2008 DTS but when you go and enter 2006 DTS it comes up not-compatible. Didn't want to risk $120 for something that may or may not work.
My Fobs are programmed through the Message center as well.

hey raven ive got a 07 they match up fine just do not get the one with the key built into it those will not work also if you want to change your key from the ugly crest to the color crest look for the blank for the 08 cts those work also its a beautiful thing to look at its a nice match

My Father has an 08 SRX and he has the key Fob I want. I assumed since the 08 DTS didn't have the key built into them I should be fine.

I thank you for the heads up on the built in key advisement. Ill be sure to stay away from that one. lol. My blank one is Cracked and does not have the crest which is disappointing.

Where did you get one for that price?

Make sure to get the DTS ones ... the STS / SRX ones will not work for you.
The STS one is somewhat easily spotted as it has an extra little 'button' on the bottom between the trunk release and the key ring slot to pull out the internal key blade to open the door in the case of a dead car battery.

I bought a used one from http://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/ for $17.77 for my 2006 DTS Performance. Worked like a charm. Even the remote start. Needed to program my existing one too, but was no problem. Paid more for the key ($28) at True Value hardware store, than I did for the remote.

you picked the right remote it will work no problem when you program it reprogram your old remote at the same time why not have a spare just in case

----------

btw look at the color crest on the keys at the bottom left of your ebay link that you posted those make a very nice match with that new remote

Received my order from AUTONIZ from ebay, same link I posted earlier and was absolutely pleased with my order. Paid Friday 8/2/13 after hours, shipped immediately and received it today. Shipping was free and my new remote is working. If anyone is interested in getting one buy from this guy at ebay.

Are these used Fobs? Good deal nonetheless
