Customer: Not corroded
JA: What is the model/year of your GMC?
Customer: 2016 terrain
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Dried key, temoved battery and dried that area. The auto start works, but putting the key in the ignition and turning to the run position turs the car off. Is there any way to override the electronic communications between key and vehicle?
