  1. This winter the alarm started going off after a remote start cycle ends. When the car shuts off (after remote start cycle ends) there will be about a 30 second delay and then the alarm starts going off. I mentioned it to the dealer service and they suggested trying a different FOB before they started digging into it. They obviously had not heard of the problem before. I tried a different FOB and it made no difference. I have searched the internet and haven't seen anyone else mention this problem. I don't have a lot of faith in the service at the dealer, so I am wondering if anyone has any ideas?
  2. I have a 2017 Silverado Work Truck. Came with Factory power windows and power locks. It did not come equipped with a keyless entry system from the factory. It does not have any of the modules to add remotes for door lock entry or remote start. Does anyone know of a kit to add these features to my truck?
  3. I saw that my vehicle build list included something called UTJ-Theft Protection System, Unauthorized Entry and after testing it is just what I was looking for. (When a door or hood is opened after locking the truck, it chirps then blasts the horn. p2-11 in manual.) In my previous vehicles I have added a momentary switch inside the door handle so if the vehicle is locked, just a pull on the handle will trigger the alarm, instead of triggering once the door is already opened. I'm sure this has saved me on numerous occasions because I have returned to my vehicle to find it was triggered but never opened, so I figure the thief got spooked when alarm sounded earlier than expected. I'd like to do the same for my door and tailgate handles on this truck. On previous vehicles a switch to short to ground was all I needed, but I don't see door switches and I know nothing about the GM alarm. Does anyone have info on how the alarm is triggered? Any suggestions on best way to implement my plan? TIA
  4. My Ford F-150 didn't have keyless entry so I kept my keys in during one of my extended overseas trips, using the keypad to get in and my keys always safe. I could never stand the thought of losing my keys 6,000 miles away and having no way to get in my truck and I wouldn't be able to get in my house! I learned it the hard way a long time ago, never again. I didn't know my Chevrolet came with keyless but it was attached to a fantastic deal I couldn't refuse so I had a dilemma. I could use my phone to unlock my truck so I didn't really need the keypad my Ford had, but I just may install one for $250 at the dealership anyway. That's just in case I lose my phone whilst overseas. Unfortunately, keeping the keyless fob around the new Silverado will cause battery drainage as the module will be kept active when the keys are detectable. My truck didn't lock when I was at the back of my truck. As one member said, the Hitch Safe wouldn't be good enough and he's right so it was no longer an option. One here suggested wrapping it in aluminum foil and I tried that. It worked very well and realized my Progresso soup can had thicker aluminum so I tried it with the smooth-edge can opener and, voila! I am very pleased to report my truck did not unlock when I held it inches away from the door. To think I was going to spend $19.99 for a can of Coca-Cola with a secret compartment! Now, my question is: if I used my phone to unlock the truck from a distance... how long would the battery last before it dies? Can it do a month?
  5. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Single Cab 4.3L V6. Pulled into the parking lot at work this morning with no issues. Went to back into a parking spot and when I shifted into reverse, EVERYTHING in the cab shut off for about 3 seconds. When it came back on I had an airbag alarm and a stabilitrak alarm. I backed into the spot without issue. As far as I could tell the drive-train was fine. I have the convenience package which is basically the backup camera, Bluetooth, and On-Star. Anyone else come across this issue or anything similar?
  6. New person here who has some questions for more knowledgeable chevy owners out there. I am attempting to install a regular alarm into my 2000 Silverado, on my alarm it only has (-) power lock and (-) unlock outputs. And I see that the car itself has both positive (+) power lock and unlock. Since I'm not installing a remote start to the vehicle, I didn't purchase any sort of bypass module for the passlock. Do I need it to connect my alarm to my car? Or do I convert the negative outputs to positive using relays? Also since I was adding the aftermarket alarm anyway, I was thinking of running a line to back and attaching it to the trunk pin to act as a sort of door trigger for the tailgate. Can this be done the way I'm thinking of? I want the alarm to go off if someone opens my tailgate. Sorry if I seem to be asking stupid questions. Thank you for your help.
  7. Recently bought a 2015 1500 Crew Cab 4x4 LT with 1LT plus package. Seems fairly nicely equipped but noticed that when locked with the key FOB the light sensor/ alarm light on the dashboard does not light up or flash. Also noticed that if I unlock the door with a key and open the door no alarm sounds (I believe I read that this should set off the alarm). Is it really possible that the keyless entry doesn't include any sort of alarm or does it seem like it just isn't working right? Figured WT model may be Keyless Entry only but no alarm on LT? How do I know if there is supposed to be an alarm or at least a light that blinks when the truck is locked?
  8. My 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 extended cab truck will randomly set off the alarm when sitting with the doors locked. It will also randomly post a drivers door ajar message while driving even though the door is shut and latched. Also sometime the radio will not shut off when the key is pulled. It will also do the key in ignition chime when the truck is off and the drivers door is closed. Sometimes the interior lights will not extinguish when the doors are closed. It appears to me that it must be related to the drivers door latch switch but I can't seem to find anything online as to how to troubleshoot the switch. I suspect the switch is bad in the door latch or else the wiring is broken from the door to the body from years of opening and closing the door. If anybody has pointers/schematics as to how to troubleshoot it I would appreciate it.
  9. I have a 2014 sierra double cab sle with the z71 package. This is my first vehicle with power locks, and I am use to just unlocking the door with the key instead of using the key fob. When I unlock the door with the key manually the alarm goes off until I crank the truck. Does anyone know how to prevent this? I had to convince a security guard leaving church the other day that I was not stealing my truck! I was in a coat and tie with my Bible in hand and Barney Fife thought I was stealing my own truck! I guess that's a good cover though... ha. I guess I need to add my alarm is the factory alarm.
