    1. The ignition must be in the "run" position.
    2. Find the programming connector that is hanging off a wire harness on the upper left side of the trunk by the left hand hinge. Its a 2-pin male connector with two black-with-white-stripe wires. (*)
    3. When you short these two pins together with a screwdriver or shorting plug, the RCDLR will cycle the lock and trunk solenoids to confirm it is ready. This connector will need to remain shorted until your are finished programming the remotes.
    4. Pressing any key (only once) on either remote will program that remote to the RCDLR. You will need to re-program both remotes once you begin the procedure. The RCDLR will only remember the last two (2) remotes programmed. Any transmitter codes that were previously programmed will be ereased.
    5. The locks will cycle lock-unlock after each remote is programmed to confirm that it register its signal. Once the shorting plug is removed the alarm will sound for 1 second - this indicates that the system is ready. The system will not operate if the shorting plug is not removed.

    To disable the automatic unlock-in-park feature:

    1. After the last remote is programmed, but before you un-short the programming connector, press the following sequence three (3) times on a remote:
    * lock, unlock, trunk
    2. The RCDLR will cycle the door locks and trunk release solenoids three times to confirm at the end of the sequence.

    To re-enable the unlock-in-park feature of, just repeat the above to reprogram the RCDLR to your remotes, but don't do the special three-button-three-times sequence.

    You can match a transmitter to as many different vehicles as you own, provided they are equipped with exactly the same model system.

    Reviving Dead Key Fobs

    If you suspect the key fob itself isn�t working, the dealership's parts department has a device that will check to see if it is indeed functioning (transmitting) properly. If you have a frequency counter you can check it as well, output is in the 318-320 MHz range. The couple that I've check have been 318.990 & 319.075 MHz - note that no matter which button you press (light, unlock, lock, trunk open, etc.) the transmit frequency does not change.

    If they're still not working (after installing fresh batteries) and you feel like messing around with it a little, take the key fob totally apart and clean the contact points behind the rubber membrane and the brass etchings on printed-circuit (PC) board - this may be just enough to bring it back to life! Moisture intrusion and the resulting corrosion on the contacts is usually the culprit in a lot of "not working" situations.

    Slightly unrelated question.

    If the gentleman from whom I purchased my 1995 FWB was unable to supply a key fob, would it be possible to pick one up from a dealership?

    Key fobs are an amazing invention, and I'd really love to get in on that.

    Re: Program Key fob for Cadillac Fleetwood 1994

    So there is a box in the trunk which powers or enables the alarm, stereo, lighting and etc for the Cadillac Fleetwood? Because my stereo isn't working as the time shows 0:00 and every five seconds it goes off and right back on. The lighting also doesn't turn on and I was told by the previous owner that I have to replace the computer or "box" in the trunk to have that fixed. He told me it runs for a bout "$150," but I don't even know what it is or where to get it. Any help?

    That's the CCM, or Central Control Module. Mine went bad due to a water leak, and I am experiencing similar problems. My AC and interior lights will not turn off even if the car is off, so I have to remove the fuse to get them off.

    If you look in the trunk, in the extreme back, there is a steel box with wires plugged into it. That's your CCM.

    You can try this link. This is a link to RockAuto. I think the CCM for our cars is also known as a Body Control Module also. I'm having a Pass Key issue and it seems to be coming from the computer in the trunk because I've already done the resistor mod and I'm still having the issue where the car starts when it wants to.

    Re: Program Key fob for Cadillac Fleetwood 1994

    Question - I just bought a 1994 Fleetwood and it came with both remotes which worked except for the trunk button. So I replaced the batteries, cleaned the contacts, and successfully re-programmed following the instructions on this post. But for some reason, the trunk button on both remotes still are not working. For what its worth, the release button in the glove box does work. Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks
