    Key fob transmitters

    Got kind of an odd question, maybe somebody knows-
    I'm looking for the size comparison of the insides of this GM key fob:

    In relation to the pcb/insides of ours...?

    ----------

    Sorry-
    By "ours" I mean this one

    Re: Key fob transmitters

    if you are asking whether or not you can -
    swap the guts from your old fob into the one pictured at the top -
    the answer is NO -

    first the PCB obviously wouldn't fit -
    and second - the buttons don't line up -

    and anticipating your next question -
    NO - you can't program the top fob to work with your Eldo

    so - now tell us what you really want to do -
    if you want a new fob case and touch pad because yours is worn and looks bad -
    ebay has them really cheap -

    Oh, alright I'll tell you - lol, fair enough

    Nobody makes a switchblade / flip out key for the Eldorado. It really doesn't seem that difficult to DIY one, just need to find a shell that the pcb will fit inside.

    Have to cut up a key fob shell for the button layout and cut out what's currently there, replace the key, etc. it'd be a project.
    Closest I've found is this

    But that $40 because there's electronics in it. I just want the plastic. The one above is only $10 but I don't know if it'll fit...

    I've looked around for an after market switchblade key, and couldn't find one. Have a link to the one pictured?

    Yeah, I've found nothing so far, thought the one above might have been for our cars.

    It says its only compatible for a 2000 Deville

    eBay item # 380347682414

    ----------

    There used to be one for the 1999 corvette floating around several years ago that I thought might work, had VATS key and everything- but it's no longer available as far as I can tell

    I went through the same thing last year. I'm still using my factory fob and key.

    If it works with an '00 Deville, it'll work with other years and models.

    I sent them an email asking some specifics. If the internals are out of OEM fob, your existing circuit board could be swapped in, no programming necessary.

    That's what I thought- *only for a 2000 Deville sounded strange. I've emailed them before, twice actually, but have never received a response.

    The same thing can be found at ikeyless.com
    With the same 2000 Deville only rap
    And they don't return emails either - I'm assuming its the same seller

    Re: Key fob transmitters

    I can tell you this with 100% certainty -

    the Cadillac model fobs use unique frequencies -
    that is why a Deville fob can't be matched to a Seville or Eldo -
    and a Seville fob can't be matched to a Deville or Eldo - etc -

    and I will GUARANTEE you
    no other GM fobs will work on any Cadillac model -

    the ONLY shot you have at this working -
    is if it was DESIGNED to accept your existing PCB - and keypad -

    but - in the ad - it states it must be programmed by the dealer -
