$99 dollars to program key fobs?

Ok, i now have gotten an answer from my dealer about the 2-way key fob for my 08 G6 GXP, i need the $150 dollar one. But here is my next question. They told my wife that they "had" to charge an additional 99 dollars to reprogram all my key fobs. I know I can do it myself but, is there and additional computer flash or something they have to do to make the 2 way key fob work? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yea when I asked my dealership they said they only charged something like $25-$30 to program the fobs...I still think any price is a ripoff and that they should include it in the price of the fob(s), but that's GM for ya always nickel and diming

yeah tell me about it

Yeah I know there is a process to add key fobs to your car and most of the time it only involves a few keys turns and button presses like i did in my mustang. But I don't know, it's starting to piss me off b.c. I get conflicting answers from the dealership (trying to rip me off) and the Knowledge base (smart people trying to save a buck i.e. us on the forum). Why does everything with a new car have to be a challenge. Thanks for all ya'lls help. When i get outty Iraq this time and "I" go to the dealer instead of my ditzy wife, they probably will have another price/story for me..

Laterz,
Danno

I got em free on one car at one dealership and they wanted an arm and a leg at the other dealership.... Shop around cause they all dont charge the same.

I just took my sons 2007 G6 to the dealership because the FOB's would intermittently. They replaced and programmed them both at no charge. The car was purchased used from them last April.
