You're talking about a 1997 and a 2004, so the keyless remote transmitters
would definitely not work for both cars, and if my memory serves, the '04
LaSabre has one key, that is used for the ignition and the door locks, where
as a 1997 Bonneville has one key for the ignition, and another one for the
door locks. Just make some spares, and carry a set of each. I get my spare
keys for my '97 Bonneville off E-Bay (you just need to use an ohm meter to
get the proper reading), they are usually under $9, they come as a blank,
and you just have it cut, and you're ready to go, and it's much cheaper then
getting it from a dealer. I carry keys for my '97 Bonneville, and my '82
Trans Am (both have 2 keys, for a total of 4), several people's house keys,
a couple spare keys for other family members cars, and several other keys on
my key ring. Just take off all those Hawaiian trees, and the big Tribble
looking thing most people have :-P
i like to minimize the number of keys i have to carry around. now wife
and i both cary each other's car keys, i have a house key and thats it,
(haven decided what to do with the bon'eville key yet...indeed the bmw
bike and wife's toy car have the keys in or near them in the garage.
it is good to know that i can get spares offa ebay.
