I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 cadillac escalade and the driver side door unlock switch doesn't unlock but it does lock. I am attempting to program a key fob.

Mechanic's Assistant: Did the fob come with the vehicle, or did you buy a blank?

I brought it from Batteries Plus

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not tied anything yet but I am somewhat mechanically inclined

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

Perhaps a window behind the drivers seat will not work sometimes

IS the concern with the switch not able to unlock any door or will no switch nor the fob unlock the driver's door alone?

The master switch does not unlock any door but will lock all the doors. I just brought a new key fob and was attempting to program the fob for my vehicle?As instructed I have to hold the unlock button down on the master switch in order to program the fob, however the unlock switch doesn't activate or make a sound manually!
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Moose, the unlock switch on the master or driver's side will not unlock any door but will lock while the vehicle is mobile and after parking will unlock every door automatically. But I'm attempting to program a key fob to this vehicle and was instructed to hold down the unlock switch on the master switch and the switch makes no sound nor does it activate!
