Program A Key Fob On The 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

In the 1998 model year, General Motors saw fit to replace the aged Cutlass Supreme. GM did so with the release of the futuristic-looking Oldsmobile Intrigue. The 1998 Intrigue came standard with a 3.8-liter V-6 that produced 195 horsepower and 230 foot-pounds of torque. The 1998 Intrigue also came standard with power door locks and had the option of adding keyless entry. This system used a small key fob to lock and unlock the doors. When you replace a key fob, reprogramming is required for the new key fob to lock and unlock the doors.


1. Sit in the driver’s seat with all of the doors closed. Press and hold the power door lock switch on the driver’s side to “Unlock.”

2. Insert the ignition key in the ignition and remove it twice, then insert the key a third time. Release the door lock switch and listen for two chimes indicating the system is in programming mode. If you do not hear the chimes, restart from Step 1.

3. Press and hold the “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons on the key fob for 12 seconds. Listen for two chimes indicating programming of the key fob. Repeat this step for each key fob you need to program.

4. Remove the key from the ignition.
