Probably have to take it to the dealer, so they can get the vin and order a new one.

wrong. 01 and 02 remotes CANNOT be reprogrammed. They ripped you off.. You have to buy a new complete programable (03- up)system and have it installed.

Umm...where was I wrong? Did I not say he'd have to go to the dealer to get a new one?

Regardless, Suzuki (GM) should be able to provide a replacement key programmed to his existing system, which is on file indexed by his VIN number.

If you're calling THAT wrong, prove it.

well. considering the fact that you changed your post after I wrote that... you originally said that a dealer can reprogram it. Which is incorrect.. and he does not want a replacement key anyway.. He asked how to reprogram a transmitter he bought.. Which he can't.

What the hell are you reading? I didn't change anything! Do you see any "Edited" on my post? Also, he didn't buy a transmitter, he bought a VEHICLE and one of the transmitters than came with it doesn't work. So he was wondering if he can reprogram the existing one (that came with it) or does he have to go to the dealer, and I said he has to go to the dealer.

Dude, you seriously need to pay more attention.

See that "Last edited by Jet-Lee" on this one? Why isn't that on the first one, if I so edited it? Even you can't take that tag off your own post.

Cool Key Fob Programming for 2001 XL7

Hey Guys,

I didn't mean to cause a disagreement ... But I do appreciate the response,
Sounds like it's off to the dealer with this then.

I'll have to check out both the Suzuki and GM Dealer for this, my old car has gotta come first - this is Back to The Fifties (BTTF) / MSRA Weekend 12,000 plus cars 1964 and older.
If your into cars like I am you should check out the MSRA Web Site
{MSRA = Minnesota Strret Rod Association}

Thanks again - I'll let you know if I can come up with an easier way to do this from one of the Techs at the dealer.

yep, I am familiar with that show too. We go to most of the shows around this area too.

There is nothng the dealer can do besides try to sell you a whole new system and install it. The fobs are not programmable.. Mine does a year ago and I just use my key to open and lock .. like the old days
