How to install a keyfob? None of the other sites answers are working.

Asked by Aug 17, 2016 at 03:46 PM about the 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4 Dr GL Sedan

Question type: General

I have tried looking for terminals in the trunk. I have tried doing the whole hold
the unlock button then on off on off with the ignition. One that i cant seem to
figure out if the plug underneath my steering wheel where you plug in a obd
scanner. One site says to plug a paperclip into terminal 8 but it does not state
what the other end of the paperclip goes into after.

That is the OBD port. You have OBD2 system don't stick a paper clip in there as you could damage more than you know. Key fob reprogramming can be very tricky at times especially on the older vehicles, I recommend if it won't program like the instructions stated that you take it to a professional, that way it will be done right.
