Tire monitoring system needs servicing message came on and key fob quite working. Not the battery in the fob. Still looking for cause.
keyless entry wont go active and i can't program new controls in the system, when I purchased the car came with an alarm system taht wasn't working, so i removed the entire system and bought new gm keyfob controls, when i tried to reprogram them, the system won't go into programing mode, and i can't activate them, also the right side both pass and rear pass, sometime won't unlock/lock the doors. any help is welcomed,
Key fob stopped working. The key has power the Tahoe does not respond to anything. It just out of the blue stopped working. It will not go into programming mode. I have to open it with the key.
Driver display won't go to ACTIVE position for learning new key fob. Old ones won't work either with new batteries.
Key fobs intermittently inoperative after vehicle sits idle for longer than an hour or so.
Takes approx 30 presses of the unlock button to "wake" the vehicle up.
If remote key entry is non-functioning and entry is done via manual door unlock, there is a
no crank, no click issue with DIC displaying "Stabilitrak off" , no shift indicator light, no dash lights, door locks inoperative, power windows inoperative, and no radio. Leaving key in the ON position for approximately 1 minute, the vehicle magically "wakes up" and all functions afforementioned resume to normal operation.
