You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob because the battery died. On my '00 Grand Prix (similar car) there's a fuse marked "MALL PGM". Remove it. Get in the car, close the doors. Cycle the ignition until you hear it chime. Usually about 5 times. Then press and hold both the lock and unlock buttons on the fob until the door locks cycle. Reinstall the fuse and you'll be good to go. Hope that works. -Jim
