March 17, 2008I just came across an old keyless entry remote for my mothers 96 blazer that was totaled years ago. Is there any way to reprogram it to work with my truck? My truck has the factory installed keyless entry / security system in it but i've never had a remote for it. I tried to get a remote from a dealership but they told me i would have to pull apart my entire dash to find some little black box and get a number off it. Without that number, they wouldn't know which of the two kinds of remotes i need.

March 17, 2008I found these on some other sites, so I cant verify weather or not they work, but worth a shot
This was driving me batty trying to find instructions and some places wanted $15 just to tell you how to program your own remotes. Stupid.
Here is instructions for the GM Remote Transmitter 300/350 or 200/201 with programming button the only difference is the 3xx will chirp, the 2xx won't. The FCC ID for the remotes I programmed for my vehicle are as follows and I can confirm work.
FCC: GOH-MM6-101890 DOC:1409 K791 (GM branded and Volkswagen Branded)
FCC: GOH-M24 (Volkswagen Branded)
These instructions will work with many other years as long as it has the same system.
350/300/200/201 with programming button
1. Open Driver's Door
2. locate programming button under the dash, it's usually black or red
3. insert key into ignition and turn key to the "ON" position, but do not start the engine
4. press and hold down the progamming button, after about 15 seconds the locks will cycle 3 times, continue to hold the programming button down.
5. Press the "Lock" button on each remote you want it to recognize, the vehicle will respond by cycling the locks
6. release the programming button and turn the ignition off. You're now done
200/201 system without programming button
1. Enter the vehicle and close all doors, make sure the courtesy light is not on.
2. Perform the following within a 10 second time span
1. Turn the ignition to the "ON" position
2. Using the dash mounted courtesy light switch turn the lights ON-OFF, ON-OFF, ON-OFF pausing 1 second between each rotation.
3. Turn ignition off
3. The locks will now cycle 3 times to indicate vehicle is in programming mode
4. Press the "Lock" button on each remote you want vehicle to recognize, locks will cycle once for each successful recognition
5. When done turn ignition on and then off to exit programming mode
THIS WILL WORK FOR MOST ALL GM CARS & VANS
Chevy Venture & VANS ONLY SOME SUV'S
1. Gather ALL your keyless FOBS for this vehicle.
2. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Remove the "BCM PRGRM" fuse from the fuse panel, accessed by opening the front passenger door. Use the legend on the fuse panel to properly locate the "BCMPRGRM" fuse.
4. Close the liftgate.
5. Get in and close all the doors.
6. Insert key into the ignition, and turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC (one click towards you - the opposite direction from starting the engine).
7. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.
8. Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the system enters programming mode.
9. Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for about 14 seconds. IMPORTANT: After 7 seconds a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming. Your new remote has been accepted and all existing remote codes have been erased.
10. Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed (incuding any existing transmitters)
11. Re-Install the "BCMPRGRM" fuse into the fuse panel.
GM TRUCKS AND MOST CARS
IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the transmitters you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program the transmitter, all previous codes will be erased from the memory. The other transmitters will not be functional until you program the transmitters again.
1. Close all vehicle doors.
2. Insert the key into the ignition.
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driverÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s door panel-continue to hold down until instructed to release.
4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).
6. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
9. Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock the doors automatically.
10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until the door locks and unlocks. This step may take up to 30 seconds.
11. Repeat the previous step for each additional transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
March 17, 2008I don't think its as complicated as the dealerships letting you believe. They can get the number off the remote.
Anyways... above is good directions on how to program them, but.. I don't think it will work.
March 18, 2008Stevens07, the problem was i never had a remote in the first place. They just pulled up a diagram on the computer and said it looks like the little black box is somewhere around the area behind the shifter. I've looked a few times and never found anything. I was just hoping this old remote i found might work until i get the money to install a real security system and remote starter. Thanks for the info guys. Guess i'll just have to grab some batteries next time i'm out and see what happens.
March 18, 2008You can find them all over ebay for year and style you should need. Since you already have the power locks option on your truck it really should be as easy as that.
The second one listed, you could give him a call for some quick questions, but I'd think either one would work.
They are pretty standard, and once you get it, you can use the programming above. I got a second one off ebay for my Trail blazer, and it worked perfect.
Good luck brother.
March 18, 2008After shipping, i could get that one for $20. I still need to figure out which remote i need though.
May 21, 2012I have a 2000 s-10 Blazer, and when I use my remote, it flashes the lights, but no chime, and no activation of the keyless entry system. I tried reprogramming the system to accept the remotes, but for some reason, the door locks did not operate at all during the process, except for when I pressed the button on the door. Otherwise everything else operated as normal.
