  1. 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?
  2. Truck in question: 2001 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 (w/ Stock Keyless Entry System) Okay, I really didn't want to make a forum post, but I've scoured the hivemind for answers and I have found none. Recently I ordered new batteries for my 15732803 key fob that was showing signs of a weak battery. i.e. Required holding button longer than before, and requiring me to stand closer. I removed the old battery about 12 hours before installing a new one. (idk why I did this, but I didn't think it would cause issues.) I tested the fob at Pep-Boys on one of those Energizer fob testers. Seems to work fine! After installing the battery, I followed the instructions on the inside of the fob case. "Press and hold LOCK & UNLOCK for 7 seconds". I did this, but I received no response from the truck. I tried this several times to no avail. At this point I assume that removing the battery for an extended period caused the rolling codes to become lost or out of sync... I begin attempting to enter programming mode as per my trucks service manual. This is where I am having problems. I followed the service manual and a multitude of other online resources that gave me the same, or slightly differing instructions. However, the locks NEVER cycle when I release the drivers-side UNLOCK button. I tried different combinations of this, with different speeds; removing the key, opening and closing the door every time. No luck... The systems worked well for years until I removed and replaced the battery. I respectfully ask that you don't respond with programming instruction from the service manual. I've read it so many times I could recite it by memory. I am certain that it's either a hardware/software issue, or it's a process issue. Maybe I'm performing the procedure too fast? Too slow? Are there known quirks that are undocumented in the service manual? Did I somehow mess something up by leaving the fob battery out for so long? (This seems unlikely since the fob isn't the issue in question) Thank you in advance for anyone who responds.
  3. Hi! I have a 2015 Silverado 1WT that does NOT have keyless entry. I'm a bit miffed because the salesman told me it could be added at a later date, but when I called the dealership they told me it couldn't be added. So I've come across a TON of different responses on this forum and others - all of which give conflicting advice. I'm left with my head spinning as to whether or not it can be done. Here's my info: 2015 Chevy Silverado Double Cab - 1WT Currently NO KEYLESS entry These are the RPO codes (note: no AQQ) I have power locks. I have TPM sensors. i03 radio. A chevy tech on another forum told me i needed the hood latch kit in order to add it. While yet another forum told me the ECM is software-locked and cannot have keyless codes entered, even from the factory. I type my VIN into the accessories.chevy.com and get the remote start kit (2 fobs, wiring harness, hood latch harness) as an option: VEHICLE 1: Vin: 1GCVKPEH0FZ187249 / 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4 - Door Extended Cab Pickup 143.5 WT 4WD Remote Start Kit Part No.: 22997089 So, I orderd the kit through my local dealership. They called me yesterday and told me their system wouldn't allow them to order the kit for my truck, and that I was out of luck with keyless entry - unless I wanted to go aftermarket. So here I am, confused as all heck. Has anyone figured out a solution to this keyless issue? Can it be done? Is there something else I need to do? I would prefer to not go aftermarket (and void warranty or anything). Can I just order the 2297089 and install it myself, then go to the dealer and have it programmed? or will the computer not accept it? There's so many different answers on different forums ranging over the past 4-5 years or so. I'm hoping that someone here has a bit clearer answer for me. Thanks in advance!
  4. So I am sure it’s on here somewhere I did try to Search with nothing to fine on it but I just want to know. I am use to the remote start for a Jeep and all you have to do do is just hit the start button and it auto locks the doors and starts but on my Chevy it seems like I have to hit the lock button twice then hit the start button for it to start with the fob remote. Is it just me doing something wrong or is that how the 18’s are
  5. Does anyone know what all parts it would take to add keyless entry with the fobs and the tailgate camera handle connected to the radio screen. I have seen gm parts that look like what I would need but if it doesn't work then I am out the money and not my work. One kit went into detail of sending in the old computer once the new one is installed. Can anyone out there help?
  6. I have a 2012 Silverado LT Z71 with 5.3 that I bought used. When I bought the truck it did not have key fobs so I bought two factory style knock-offs from eBay. I took them to a locksmith and he programmed them and they worked great for almost a year. Last week I went to leave home and my truck battery was dead and would not crank. So, I charged up the battery and everything was fine except now neither key fob will work. The only response I get from the key fobs is if I hold both lock and unlock buttons at the same time the truck will go into tire pressure sensor relearn mode. So, then I took the truck back to the locksmith and told him what had happened. He said sometimes when the battery dies the truck will lose memory of the keys fobs. He then hooked up a zed-full computer and attempted to reprogram the key fobs. He tried multiple times several different ways and even used another type of computer but was unable to program them. The truck would go into keyfob learn mode but would never chime when he would hold the lock and unlock buttons down. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas?
  7. Members just wanted to pass along another Hot Sale item. Keyless Entry Keypad Here is the information from GM: "This Keyless Entry System features a keypad that allows you to lock/unlock your vehicle using a five-digit PIN rather than a key or a key fob. Must be equipped with factory Remote Keyless Entry." Personal note, after coming from my F150 a few years ago, this is one of the items I personally never realized how much I used until I did not have it. Nice to be able to lock/unlock the truck at times when you don't have your keys handy. Only bad news, this only fits the 2017's and up..... From my understanding, they are trying to see what needs to be done to make them work with the 15 and 16's as well..... Limited time price $92.00 shipped to most places in the US Let me know if anyone is interested. Bobby
  8. Hi, I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 1500 and I wanted to know if anyone has figured out a way to add smart key functionalities to this model. I still don't understand how GM made such a high-priced truck in 2015 without having smart key unlocking functions. I basically want the truck to unlock when you get close to it which is standard on most cars since 2010 in other makes and models. Please let me know if anyone has tried to do this or if it can be done. Thanks in advance.
  9. I recently purchased a new 2015 Canyon and didn't realize that it did not come with remote keyless entry. I have installed aftermarket keyless and remote starts before, but I want to put in a GM factory kit with remote. Wondering if anyone knows what I would need to buy to do so?
  10. okay so I have a 2001 silverado which had keyless entry when i got it. long story short it got left in a barn for about a month and my keyless module wires were destroyed by mice/rats and are long gone. I bought a new keyless module that you wire in yourself. it has diagrams and im sorta familiar with the gm wiring. so blue is lock, and white is unlock. if you apply a positive to the blue wire will it unlock? or do you apply a negative? im trying to wire it in and currently ran into some problems maybe someone could lead me the right direction. thanks in advance
  11. Hey, I'm trying to program a new remote for my 06 sierra (just bought it and it didn't come with any remotes). Obviously the programming instructions are very simple but I'm guessing the door lock module in the truck may be bad. I hold the unlock button while cycling the key twice and before I let go of the button, the locks cycle twice (horn beeps as well), then a few seconds later the locks cycle again. Does anyone know how to diagnose what the problem might be or why it won't go into programming mode? Is it possible I'm missing some piece of hardware? The previous owners said it didn't have remotes but I find that hard to believe in a 2006 truck.. Thanks, Seth
  12. I am looking for info on how to program the remote memory recall settings for my 2012 Silverado. I had to replace my main number 1 key fob due to it failing and now noticed that the memory seat position is not working when I press the unlock button on the remote key fob. I tried resetting my seat position with the number 1 button on the door but it makes no difference. The other orginal remote recalls memory seat number 2 but I can't get number 1 to work at all.
