Key Fob wont program?

We bought this 04 LS used but it didnt have a key fob so I ordered one on fleabay thats supposed to be for this car, and it wont program. Ive done the correct procedure I found here and other places with no luck. I read there could be an issue with the receiver? But I havent found any info where its at, or how to check it, any help

I recently bought a genuine GM fob for my brother's 2001 Monte Carlo and it programmed on the first attempt.

I would return the knock-off (probably made in China.....) fob and buy a genuine new GM fob. They are not very expensive.

Good luck.

Is it possible I dont have the keyless entry or did all 04 LSs have it as standard?

LS 04 should be standard. Look on your RPO codes in trunk for AU0. ON the remote you want to make sure that on the back it has the same digits that your OEM one has/had.

For the Impala 01-05 should use 10443537 for ACDELCO. or C02028 for knockoff

James

For the 00 Impala you can't use that remote for 01-05

It isn't what you Drive that matters, It is how you drive it.

Car didnt come with a fob, but it looks like it was standard on these, didnt look at the rpo code yet but everything ive found says it was standard, to damn cold at 15 degrees to be outside fiddling around looking for something that you dont know where to look for lol, I saw under the carpet passenger side eff that, to cold lol. So im thinking about going out and replacing this ignition lock cylinder but then I started thinking that id like to keep the original key so idk, rekey it to old key, or just use 2 keys??? hmmm... I guess I need to figure out what happens if I rekey new cylinder, but have the same issues with the key being a pita to turn because of the tumblers or whatever, I swap over...

Go to a GM dealership. I went and they programmed my FOBs for free.

I appreciate the input. I already sent it back to the person I bought it from and am getting some genuine gm ones, even cheaper than this other one was, if I have the same problem then Ill know its something in the car and not me, to easy to mess it up though, unless its the receiver in the car
