Customer Question

Hi Cam. My fob is detected by the doors and trunk, but not the ignition. I get in and can't turn the keyless ignition knob. 2009 CTS. I have placed the fob in the console slot. Still doesn't work. Battery is fine. I can start the car with the remote, but still can't turn ignition on when I get in or put the car in gear.

you need to do a relearn procedure for the key fob

The programming instructions i have follow this:

1) vehicle off
2) have key fob present that works ( do not insert in console)
3)key in door 5 times unlock
4)Driver info will say ready to learn #2 #3 #4
5) place new transponder into console buttons facing front of vehicle
just reset it to #2 it will work for you

Neither key fob works as far as the ignition recognizing them. They both work to open doors and trunk. My problem is that I get in the car, but can't turn the ignition switch because the car is not recognizing that a fob is there. I'm guessing the problem is that whatever receives the signal for the ignition is not receiving it.
