My girlfriend just bought a new car yesterday, a 2007 red Pontiac Grand Prix. I went ahead and registered on here, as I am always the one who has to figure out "whats wrong with my car?!?!" So I am sure I will be here all the time now. For instance, she just drove the car off the lot yesterday, not before I popped the hood and discovered the delco battery (maybe stock) leaked out the battery vents and wiped out the positive terminal, turning it to a whitish blue fluffy powder with a thin strip of copper. dealer replaced that no problem. so she drove it a bit then I did (told her she had to, so I could take it at regular speed and see how it reacts before she actively drives it) and sure enough, I get a service TPMS warning. great, I walk around the car, sure enough the front left has a regular rubber stem on it while all other 3 have the metal stems indicating TPMS. is there some kind of override that gets reset with the battery? that and she already threw a code. she is taking it to the dealer to see what they will do.

In the meantime, she did not get a fob with her car. Judging by some of the GM fobs I have seen, I figure it got broken or the loop broke and got lost and thats why it doesnt have one. this was the case when I got my 95 buick century (last car)I had to program a fob to it. I did notice in personalization settings it has an option for remote start, but how do I tell if she has the factory remote start on there before I order a fob? is the option enough indication?

There is an rpo code list on a sticker somewhere on the car, usually the trunk lid. Figure out which 3 digit code is remote entry and see if you have it. I don't know about '07 models, but around 2000~ it was AU0 for remote entry.
'13 Mustang 3.7V6 - MT82
'00 GP SE (L67 Swap, XP, Headers, 3.25")
'98 GTP, '01 Bonne
