2002 Buick Regal. New to me but no key fobs.

It does have electric door locks.

I want to get new fobs but I don't know how to tell if they will work or not.

Thanks!

RPO codes on the sticker in glovebox or on spare tire.

Should be code AU0 (zero)

Most vehicles with factory-installed keyless entry will have a keypad on the driver's door.

I'm 99% sure that the Regal came standard with remote keyless entry. All you have to do:

-buy a remote


1) Sit in the drivers seat
2) Remove key from ignition cylinder
3) Close all the doors
4) Press and hold the UNLOCK on the door lock switch
5) While holding the door lock switch in the UNLOCK position, insert
and remove the ignition key twice. DO NOT ROTATE THE IGNITION CYLINDER.
6) Insert the ignition key a third time, leaving the key in the
ignition cylinder. The ignition MUST remain in the LOCK position for
the rest of the procedure.
7) Release the door lock switch. You will hear 3 chimes. This chime
feedback indicates the transmitter programming is active.
8) Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote for 12
seconds. You will hear two chimes. This chime feedback indicates the
transmitter has been accepted.
9) Repeat step 8 for each additional transmitter
10) Remove ignition key from cylinder to exit programming.
11) Verify functions of remotes.


Here's a link to a remote. $29. http://www.carandtruckremotes.com/r012.html


Your RPO sheet should be on the left side underneath the spare tire cover.

Good luck!

Unfortunately this isn't true for GM cars or trucks. For Fords it would be, but OP's Buick wouldn't.

Not even for Fords. Wife's 03 Escape had keyless entry fobs but no keypad on the door. Even today I think some Fords (Super Duty, some F150's, Mustang, Focus, Fiesta, maybe Fusion) don't have pads either.

The OP could also try and see if his car is still in one of those online window sticker generators. You could try looking here: www.researchmaniacs.com . Or a quick call to the dealer's parts counter with the VIN would help. Just tell them you need a clicker for the car. Give them the VIN and it should tell if it has it or not.

I bought a 1999 Isuzu Oasis (19998 Honda Odyssey badged for Isuzu) in 2001 from Car Max. I thought it had keyless entry, but was missing the fobs. I called Isuzu with the VIN and they were easily able to confirm that is actually did NOT have keyless entry.

The number keypads are exclusive to Ford. They can be added as an accessory to vehicles that were not factory equipped. I have the add-on on my Mustang and put it on the cowl panel.
