Customer Question

I have a nice 2007 Chevy Equinox. I have tried 3 new keyless entry key fobs. I can program them, then after 5 minutes nothing works.
JA: Have you checked the fob's battery?
Customer: They are new
JA: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Had it at the dealer, they told me it was the key fob. OK, I got another one from a parts store locally. I programed it through the vehicles on board info center, it worked for a minute, then nothing
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: cant think of anything

Nothing works. Period

Looks like you need to have the dealer put their J-4321 tester on it and reprogram the BCM. If the bcm isnt holding the code, there is nothing you can do yourself
