    Yes if optioned as such. RKE was an option for the SL1.

    I should mention that if you have power locks then you have the RKE option. If you're missing the FOBs you can buy new ones quite readily online but with the Gen3 you have to go to a GM dealer to have them programmed them using a proprietary GM Tech2 scanner. Typically they're going to charge you the minimum 1 hour shop labour at the going rate. Some have said a locksmith has the capability too but I'm not sure if that is the case.

    I'd have a remote start installed which comes with FOBs and does not require GM intervention. It'll likely cost the same but then you have remote start too for pre-heating or cooling your car depending on the weather.

    It's quite a bit of work but you can install them from a donor car. You'd need the FOB's, RKE module, lock actuators, door switches and interior wiring harness in addition to the dealer programming. It involves removing most of you interior (seats, console, door panels, trim, etc..). It's been done but most people shy away from it.
