Searched and searched. Cannot seem to find the correct part number for 2014 ELR 5-button keyfob replacement. One of mine went through a Maytag heavy cycle and is toast.

Thanks. All I was getting was the wrong one for CTS/SRX.

And yeah, I realize it ain't cheap.

Open it up, pull the board out and take an old toothbrush and scrub it down with some rubbing alcohol and let it dry out a day or two. Pop in a new battery and it will probably work...

Mines been through the wash a lot of times :/

agree with the alcohol scrub.....you might also try tossing it into a bag of uncooked rice or bread and leave it at least overnight, especially if you aren't comfortable pulling the board out of the casing.

The part number is unique to the ELR, but I would imagine something else would program to the car. You could always pick up a cheap one on eBay and give it a shot.

Well I tired pairing a loaner CTS-V key I had when the ELR was in for service and I picked up/dropped after hours for funsies and it didn't work. I assume they are different frequencies.

I picked up an ELR with only one key. Has anyone been able to add a new key with the procedures in the owner's manual using an existing key fob? The instructions is turning the key counter-clock 5 times after opening the trunk to enable the add key menu. Turning it counter-clock is not possible due to open button on the trunk trim. I also took out the silver trim to find out the lock only turns in 1 direction, clock-wise.

The directions to added another key appear to be the same across all Caddy models around the same years. The key part being turning the physical key counter-clock.

The see the alternate instructions for adding another key without an existing key. Takes a little longer but still require turning it counter-clock.
