Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dan, I can. Both window switches work fine. I can't find anything else that isn't working. Just the door remotes. They both quit functioning abruptly at the same time. I use mine the day before no problem. My wife had used hers two days prior. When mine did not work, I tried hers and it would not work either.
OK if you are sure the key fobs are good,batteries are in the correct way. And they didn't program (if your sure you programed right). The passenger door module is probably bad. The dealer has a key fob tester( I think I saw one at autozone one time) you could make sure the key fobs are good. You could try unhooking both battery cables, and touch both ends together for 30 seconds and reconnect them. That will reset the entire system and you could try to reprogram the remotes.If all fails replace the passenger door module. Here are the programing instructions for the remotes:
Method 1 - No Tools Required, Program All Transmitters
Important: All transmitters which are to be recognized by the PDM must be programmed in a single programming sequence. When using this program method, all previously programmed transmitters will be erased upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter.
The order in which the transmitters are programmed will determine its numbering position within the PDM memory. The first transmitter programmed will be transmitter #1, and the second transmitter programmed will be transmitter #2. The number stamped on the transmitter case is for reference only; #2 can be programmed as #1, or vice versa. Additional unnumbered transmitters are also available.
If I bought a new remote entry system with remote start, would that fix the problem or would I still need to replace the passenger door module?
That is an opinion, I don't like them because i have to diagnose these trucks with these remote starts causing weird symptoms. But thats my opinion. I see a lot of people use them.
