    Its not on a peice of equipment, but its all got to be similar. I am thinking of buying my parents new remotes for their 04 Buick Century. Theirs both broke at the part where you attach it to the keyring. They control the locks, trunk, and a a red button that makes the horn honk ( my favorite button :jester::D) Any idea on what a price might be. Some of you have to have this new fangled teknolgy (I purposely spelled that wrong) on your trucks. I was told it could get spendy.

    If you are looking for oem key fobs try any local junk yard, around here most have quite a few. Also try ebay I bought one about a year ago for my truck for about $15 I think. the dealer wanted I think about $80 and another $25 to program it. most newer vehicles require the dealer to program and they charge accordingly it usually runs about $25 a pice.
