Keyless Entry

I bought a 2001 Firebird and declined the Key Remote. Dealer said no problem. When you want it, to bring it back in and they can do it for around $100. ( That was in 2001 )...
I have found a few sites that sell the Keyless Remote for around $35. The one thing I need to know is, how to I check the car to seen if the Keyless Entry System has been Factory System Installed on the car?

Thanks for the help in advance!
Ron

Your model year comes stock with it all ready to go. Dealers like to charge for the keyfobs to get the extra buck.

Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Close all of the doors.
Remove the MALL PGM fuse from the fuse block.
Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
Turn the ignition to ACC. The body control module (BCM) will perform the following in order to identify the type of BCM installed in the vehicle:
Flash the seat belt indicator 1, 2, or 3 times.
Chime 1, 2, or 3 times.
Turn the ignition to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second. The BCM may begin to chime and flash diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). If the BCM has stored any DTCs, refer to Diagnostic System Check - Body Control System in Body Control System.
Open and then close any vehicle door. The BCM will chime in order to confirm that the programming mode has been entered.
Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for approximately 14 seconds.

Important
After approximately 7 seconds the BCM will chime once to confirm that synchronization has been completed. After approximately 14 seconds the BCM will chime a second time to confirm that the programming has been completed.


Repeat the previous step in order to program each additional transmitter.
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
Install the MALL PGM fuse into the fuse block.
Operate the functions of each transmitter in order to verify correct system operation.

Mark thanks for the info.... I was hoping that it was already installed since most people get the remote and all the dealer has to do is to program it...

Appreciate the good info about setting it up....

Now see about ordering that keyless piece...


Thanks again!! :-)
