  1. I tried the search but came up empty. I have a 2014 Silverado WT as a work vehicle. A couple of weeks ago the drivers door just started unlocking itself, both while driving and while parked- not a nice feature if you like to keep your belongings secure. One person suggested that the alternator was (somehow) to blame, and the shop tested it and replaced it, stating that it was putting out too much voltage, and replaced the battery at the same time. Within one day it began again. To spare the details, I traced it to the key fob- with the battery out of the fob, the doors do not try to unlock themselves anymore. A brand new battery did not fix the problem. Has anyone else had this happen? Is my problem the fob, or is it inside the truck with whatever receives the signal from the fob? Anyone know anything else to further diagnose? I CAN just take it to the dealer, but then I'm sitting around for half a day. Thanks.
  2. New member. Please let me know there's an error with my post. I've found two security issues on my 2019 Silverado and wondering if I'm missing something before contacting Chevy. 1. I can start the truck as usual with keys in the vehicle, then place the keys outside the vehicle and drive away, miles away, turn off the engine and restart the truck, repeatedly. It only presents a problem when you turn the truck off AND open the door. Then, it will not restart. 2. If you find the truck unlocked and you do not have your key fob, there is no way to lock the truck. You can press the lock button but it immediately unlocks. Any help is appreciated.
  3. I have had a problem with my remote keyless entry system on my 2001 Chevy Silverado for at least a year now. I have not been able to unlock or lock my vehicle from any distance, rarely only within a few feet, and even then it is intermittent. I bought the correct replacement key fob, and through several long attempts I was able to program it to my truck, and it has the same problems as the original key fob, which I did try to re-program as well. I am quite certain the problem is due to the wireless receiver in the truck, however I find limited and varying information on where it is located to diagnose or replace it. I went to a Chevrolet dealer earlier and was told it would cost $150 for them to just look at it. I am capable of doing many repairs myself and would like to know if anyone could help find where the malfunctioning component is, or if there are any other tests of some sort that would help me. Thanks.
  4. My key fob was stolen a couple weeks ago and I’d like to replace it. My SLT has the keyless entry/push button start, with remote start and tailgate lower. Talking to the dealer it’s about $350 for a replacement key and programming. Looking around online, I can get a replacement fob from www.carandtruckremotes.com for about $120 less than the dealer. Not sure if anyone has purchased from there, but it has highly rated reviews. The next step would be programming the new fob to work for my truck. I have one working fob now. I’ve looked around online and on this site and haven’t seen if this is possible to do yourself. I’ve seen a few things listed that say about turning the backup key in the door a few times, but wasn’t sure if that would work and make the key function properly (remote start, etc.). I’d also like the new key to be linked to “Driver #1” as this was always my settings, etc. Anybody replaced keyless entry/push button start key fob in a GMC without having to program it at the dealership?
  5. I am looking to see if anyone has been able to program their own key fobs with any cheaper machines. I have seen the Dorman programmers on eBay and Amazon which can program a 2016 Sierra Key fob. I would like to purchase a programmer or something similar like a diagnostic tool that could also program my wife’s 2012 Malibu or at least the newer GM trucks. Has anyone had luck or know of anyone able to program keys and key fobs with any cheaper tools? Any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  6. I have a strange issue with the key fob loosing it's programming on my 01 Yukon evertime I leave it at a enterprise truck rental location, the first time it happened I thought the battery was dead in my fob but it's not that! I rent a 3/4 ton truck to move my 8600lb camper a few times a year, and when I get back to my Yukon the key fob no longer unlocks my doors! It only happens if I leave the Yukon there at least overnight can all the rental cars being locked and unlocked cause this deprogramming of my Yukon? ( Keep in mind my Yukon is a 01 the rentals are all 2015-2017 GM, Ford, Chrysler Makes) or can there be someone trying to hack into vehicles? I am baffled as to what could be causing this! There has never been signs of anyone in my Yukon maybe they never got the doors to unlock? Any ideas? I take everything of value out that's easy to grab even my BlackVue Dashcam so I never have and evidence of anyone tampering with the Yukon, and enterprise doesn't have cameras watching there over flow lot at this location (they only told me cars have been stolen and/or vandelized there in the past) leaving my vehicle is at my own risk! Anyone know what could be going on? Do I need to worry my Yukon might not be there one day? They are very popular around here and mine looks like new for being 16 years old no rust, perfect paint, leather is perfect, someone might want it! It's never seen snow or road SALT! People don't believe it's age or mileage until they see it up close! I wish there was a way to get to this enterprise without driving but there's no public transportation were I live and it's 48 miles from my home. Thanks
  7. Just purchased a 2011 Silverado LT crew cab knowing it had a few issues. I have a few questions: First post on this forum so thanks for any input. The truck did not come with the key fobs, only 1 key. 1) Can I purchase key fobs and program myself 2) How can I determine if the truck has remote start 3) The drivers side door auto lock switch is not working. The unlock works and both switches work on the passenger side. 4) door speaker on driver's side not working so wondering if this could be related to potential electrical issue that ties in with the door lock not working.
  8. I've got a '99 Silverado 5.3 with around 190,000 on it and the door locks quit responding to the key fob. There was no gradual decay, just one day it worked and one it didn't. I can trip the alarm with the fob but the locks won't lock/unlock. I checked the fob battery, all fuses and the relays and everything checks out good. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.
  9. Today Pop & Lock introduced their new line of power tailgate locks that wire directly into your truck's lock system and uses your existing key fob. With this system your tailgate locks automatically whenever you lock your truck, keeping your tailgate and belongings secure from theft. Pop & Lock's 99-07 Silverado/Sierra POWER tailgate lock kit. Official Press Release:
  10. I just purchased a used 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 HD, it has power locks but manual windows, the dealer I purchased it from didn't know if it had keyless entry or not as it didn't come with a key fob, Ive done some research on how to program new fobs and I can get my truck into "Program Mode" By holding down the unlock button and cycling the ignition on/off twice, the horn honks and the doors lock and unlock, so my question is if my truck goes into "Program Mode" does that mean it does have keyless entry capabilities? Is there any other way to know if it does or doesn't? Id like to know before I spend money on a replacement fob incase it doesnt have keyless entry. Thanks in advance
