Getting dealer to program external keypad

Recommended Posts

2016 Silverado LT

 

I bought an external keypad to unlock my doors.  I took it to the dealer to get it programmed, and they quoted me three+ hours of labor at over $300.  Anyone got a better idea how to get this thing programmed?  I don't mind shipping it to a better dealer or someone with the equipment.

I thought about putting mine there, but if I remember correctly it wouldn't sit flat with enough room for the door to shut. I'd try a different dealer. 3 hrs is BS. Mine didn't even charge me. I talked to the service manager and he said they would do it since I bought the truck from them. It literally took them 10 mins. They had to make 1 phone call to get it the serial # on the keypad authorized. Then they plugged into the obd2 port and programmed it in.

Order from GM accessories pick dealer install 36.00 to install. Why they would quote you 300.00 is unreal

That is precisely the device.  Do any of you have your receipt from getting this done at your dealer?  I know the guy who owns this dealership, and I think that would help get him or his manager to act right.

 

Or, if any of you know the technical description, that would help.

 

Shoot, if you just tell me the dealer who treated you correctly, I'll call directly.

when you checkout shows dealer install options click install

it will calculate 36.00 for install plus tax and the total. Take a screen shot and show him or pick another dealer
