Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
No. I don'think a fuse is involved. Was the remote vehicle start (RVS) feature working before? If so, are the batteries in the fob good? Is the vehicle hood closed correctly?
Thank you for providing that information. Those are the most common causes of the RVS not working; other than that, all is left is the chance that someone turned the function off through the Driver Information Center. If that's not it either, then we'll have to call in the big guns - namely a scan tool capable of communicating with the modules controlling RVS.
There is also a bulletin GM put out addressing poor range where the fix is to replace the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) module and antenna. Based on the fact your keyless entry works, I just don't see that as being the problem in your car. Then again, I've seen GM do things like this before where they don't disclose the full purpose of these TSB's...
Please go ahead and check that remote start function on the DIC and let me know what you find.
