I bought my 99 firebird. The guy did not have the key FOB's. Well, My neighbor gave me their key fob from their 99 firebird that they totaled. I looked up the reprogram process, but when I take out the fuse, then cycle the ignition three times, the door locks do not lock and unlock as described. I'm pretty sure it has keyless entry because it has every option in the book. it will not enter the reprogram mode. suggestions?

The reprogramming instructions on the second website... That's what I follow, and it will not lock and unlock the doors, or open the hatch. It is supposed to do this to confirm that you are in reprogram mode, but it doesn't ever enter reprogram mode. I do remember the guy saying something about bypassing the security chip on the key...

This is from GM's 1999 book. It should be the same.

Important! Once the BCM enters program mode, all transmitters must be programmed at the same time. Any transmitters not learned at this time will be erased.

1) Remove the key from the ignition cylinder

2) Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel

3) Close all the doors

4) Close the liftgate

5) Turn the ign lock cylinder to the ACC. position

6) Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second

7) Open and close any door
Achim will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming mode

IMPORTANT!
After 7 seconds a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessar to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.

8) Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds

9) Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.

10) Remove the ignition key from the ignition cylinder

11) Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel.

Try this one - it's specifically for a 96-97 F-Body, and that was the first year(s) for the BCM. Note that it requires you to pull the RADIO fuse. Since your car is a different year, the fuse # for the RADIO might be different, but its worth a try to find the RADIO fuse, and pull that one.

Hey DJ, it might be worth trying to call a GM garage, sometimes the shop foreman will give you tips over the phone and not charge you.

ok, you are almost there. I had a bunch of trouble programing mine.
if your car had a aftermarket alarm on it at any time, it may not work!

1 pull the radio fuse, it will be the one at the bottom corner of the fuse pannel
2 turn the key from the off possition to the on position(the point all the way over before the car will try to start) 3 TIMES within 5 Seconds, Be shure to end in the ON possition!! at this point the locks should cycle on and off, and the hatch will cycle as well. I made the mastake of not ending in the ON possition. If the locks and hatch dont cycle, try the other radio fuse, if it still doesnt cycle, somthing else is wrong, but if your locks lock when you put it in gear, and unlock when you stop your car your computer should cycle.
3 after the locks cycle, push the lock and unlock key on the remote till they cycle again.
4 reinstall radio fuse, cut off car and try remote
hope this helps
Mike

This is a hot topic for me. I bought a 2000 T/A WS6 loaded with everything - except keyless entry apparently. It acts like it has it though - when I unlock the door with the key if I don't get the key in the ignition & turn it within about 6 seconds the alarm starts going off. I went to a dealer & they said it must be an after market system; then I went to a high-end mobile electronics shop & they said it was a factory system & it must be screwed up, the best thing is just to live with it until it completely craps out. So I went to another dealer & they've got me on a wait list to come in for an appointment - plan on leaving the car for a day (I can't wait to see that bill!) But isn't there a way to check the option codes on my door panel to see what security system came from the factory? At least then I'd know how it is supposed to work and could try some DIY repairs.

Thanks for any advice!

On the build code tag, Keyless Entry is "AU0" and Theft Deterrent is "UA6"

Thanks!! Sure enough mine has those codes so I'm off to pick up a fob now. I found a site that has all of the fbody option codes:

http://www.marshu.com/images-website/car/gm-firebird-camaro-rpo-car-door-manufacturer-codes/gm-firebird-camaro-GM-RPO-car-codes.pdf

Very handy (now I know what kind of rear end I have!!) Yes, I am a newbie....

There are several sites that have the specific codes for the F-Body (Firebird and Camaro). There is another site, where it you enter your VIN, it will print out the build date for your car, and all the options and build codes, and then attempt to indicate how rare the car is based on the build code combination.

There are threads on this site with links to build codes.
