OK, so my wife has a '05 Impala that has one factory key fob. I added an aftermarket remotestart/keyless entry system that comes with two fobs (making having the factory keyless entry fob like a third wheel).

The Impala fob matches my Monte. I would like to de-program the Impala fob and re-program it to the Monte. I tried going into the programming mod on the radio and NOT programming a fob, no luck. I tried removing the battery from the Impala fob for a minute, no luck either. I tried programming the fob for the Impala to the Monte and then I got a fob that controlled two car simultaneously (that's no good).

I'm running out of ideas and this is a topic I cannot find in any search.

Anybody have any ideas??

Thanks!!

It controls two cars? Thats pretty damn funny!

Its tough since now both receivers know that remote's coding. There might be a chance that if you drive farther away from the Impala and program all of the remotes to the Monte at once, it may deprogram it for the Impala.

If all else fails, remove the left A-pillar cover from the Impala, lift up the long plastic molding at the dash under the windshield, and right in front of the cluster is the keyless receiver which you can unplug. Smile

actually this is quite an easy fix, go into the impala key fob as if you were going to program one to it and then follow the instructions to program a fob, but then when it comes to the part where you hit the two keys on the fob for the learn. simply turn the radio on. Reasoning is when you go to do a new fob, it should erase the memory. And since the car computer is what learns the key fob. If you erase it like that it won't work on that car.

Getting the Impala fob to no longer control the Monte is easy, go into the Monte's fob programming and ONLY program one fob. I'm still left with, how do I unprogram the Impala fob from the Impala...

No go. That doesn't work, nor does simply exiting the programming menu and not programming a fob. Based on my programming knowledge, it would appear GM designed it that if no fob attempts to program, do not make any changes. It's almost as if I need a third fob that is nothing but a tool to program with but never actually use (but again, negates the idea of not having a fob programmed to the car, that and I don't want to buy an additional fob for this).

I tried to initiate programming the same fob twice on the Impala, in hopes that the first time enters it to the system and by initiating it again (like it was a second fob) it might de-program, but it will not attempt to do anything with re-transmitting the same fob signal.

I would almost think there should be a way to delete all programmed fobs (in the event you only had one and lost it).... But I can't find anything yet...

Try programming both key fobs for the Monte starting with the original one first. That should create a new frequency for it. If not, your only other option is to find a friend with a TechII and manually learn a key fob. That will erase any learned key fobs once it goes into program mode.

The problem is not getting the Monte to learn the new fob. I had both fobs linked to the Monte a couple of days ago. My issue is since I only have one factory fob for the Impala (that I want to transfer to the Monte), after the Monte was "learned" to the original fob and the Impala fob, the Impala fob was now controlling both cars. Sad

Right,... but starting over with both keys fobs for the Monte should use a different frequency than b4, and wont work on the Impala. I would also do this in a parking lot a few blocks away from the Impala. Laughing
