    Did GM charge you an arm and a leg to have it done too? They really like to jack up the prices for car parts for my car. Price of replacement motor mount brackets through WSSL- $68, GM- $240. What are the GM one made out of, titanium?
    No, it was free. I had to buy my second fob ($52) and the Salesman printed out the instructions from a secured website (yeah, I tried to find some other secrets there ) then sat with me in the car as I did it myself, telling me to make sure I didn't let the Service Dept. know what he was doing.

    My salesman reminds me of my Grandfather, and he's sent me several free offers (Oil Changes, Tire rotation, etc.). I know its to get my business, but the freebies work well.

    I have no idea what motor mounts cost or what they are made of. I do know that some of the generic parts are cheaper if you buy the Chevy part than the Buick part... don't ask me why that is... same GM part number, same GM part.

It involved turning on the key, pushing a radio button, holding your finger to the left side of your nose, all while holding the remote button down, etc. Some combination of that.

    I imagine that other brands are the same.

    It's radio frequencies that cause it to open. A cell phone will only convert the sound frequences that we can here (10-20000 Hz) to sound for transmission, and since the remote transmits higher than that, it won't work.
