the handset goes.. What do you mean by program?? for a handset, I though it
was plug it and and use it..Year and model would help a lot.. I don't even
know what kind of onstar you have.... more info from you may enable someone
else to help too... Bobo
It is a 1997 deville with a hughes m6100 cell phone/onstar system. i
do not know if the handset is plug and play or not, i am having
problems getting any information about the system whatsoever. it is
possible that the replacement handset i purchased is defective.
I have learned that the handset replacement is in fact a plug and
play, requiring no programming. As far as programming the hughes
m6100 there as a good sight at caddyinfo.com and onstar has a page
foor programming. The only other hurdle i ran into getting the hughes
m6100 programmed was the security code from previous owner.....I
called onstar, spoke directly with tech support and they CAN bypass
the security code. the bypass code is based on the nam programmed
into the system, using this new backdoor, you can reset the security
code back to default 000000 or any number you want. BE persistant it
took 6-8 weeks and probably 10 calls to get onstar tech support to
