an IRKEHFOB (no transponder
or key blade). This is a simple
remote fob with no key function.
This option most closely matches
the original remote.
IRKEH-GTI (IKT housing
with a GTI transponder) and
an EB3-R-B111 blade. The GTI
Transponder can be preset to the
correct GM configuration and
programmed into the vehicle or
it can be cloned to the customer
key. This is an IKT key with a
transponder ignition key.
This block also contains areas
that should suggest the correct
transponder to use for cloning
and programming. Since we are
producing a remote fob to match
the original remote, there is no
transponder suggestion listed.
Below this is the list of programmers for the Remote and
Transponder functions. Green
“check mark” icons indicate that
the MVP AD100 and SDD TKO
will work to program both the
transponder and the remote sections.
At the bottom of this block
is a button labeled “On Board
Programming.” We will return to
this screen after presetting the
remote, to find the recommended
OBP (On Board Programming)
procedure for this vehicle.
Figure 15, shows screen that
will appear after pressing the
“Preset Remote” button. A graph-
ic representation of the Smart
programmer is shown, with the
instruction to “Please place the
remote on the wireless sensing
area within 30 seconds.” When
the remote is placed on the pro-
grammer, it is sensed and evalu-
ated by the device. If a Chrysler
or other remote is placed on the
device, the message immediately
changes to indicate that we need
to use the correct remote and
will not advance to the next step.
When the correct remote is
placed in the preset well, the
message changes, as you see in
Figure 16. The message reads,
“Remote detected, to preset click
any button on the remote within
30 seconds. Click any button to
satisfy the instruction. The software interface, on the laptop, will
send the correct programming
information to the remote and
complete the preset process.
When the preset sequence is
completed, the message changes,
as you see in Figure 17. The new
message is, “Remote successfully
preset. Now program the remote
to the vehicle.” This completes
the programming sequence.
The remote is ready to be programmed to the vehicle.
This operation does not pro-
gram or clone the vehicle securi-
ty transponder. The transponder
must be electronically manipu-
lated (cloned or pre-set) by an
RW4+ cloning device.

At the bottom of the “Silca/
ILCO remote” block is a button
labeled “On board programming,” as you see in Figure 18
(see red arrow). Click on this
button to advance to the OBP
programming screen. This section requires an Internet connection.
If there is no Internet connection, the screen will show,
“Unable to contact the remote
server,” as you see in Figure 19.
The OBP instructions are not
resident in the laptop database.
This certainly looks like an
inconvenience, but there is
method in this madness. In order
to insure your consistent success in programming the remote,
the absolute latest instructions
are held in a constantly updated
database. I believe that many of
these instructions can also be
found in your AD MVP Pro/T-Code Pro manual and Key Guide.
Some GM vehicles will require a
diagnostic device to program the
remote to the vehicle.
