Remote start won't work-changed...

Remote start won't work-changed batteries in remotes and still no luck

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

We put a brand new battery in the truck when we bought it a couple of weeks ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your GM?

2014 gmc sierra 1500

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sierra 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes-tried testing the hood latch switch but regardless we don't get any dash light indicating when the hood is raised

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer.

Does the remote work for the door locks?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the remote works on the door locks. My husband unplugged the hood latch switch and checked for corrosion, then reconnected and didn't work. When the hood is up we don't get any error message showing that the hood is open. When we try the remote start, the lights flash as they should, but nothing happens.
With the engine running do you have a engine light on?
Most auto parts stores will scan it for free.

Went in through radio and remote start heated seats was already set to "on". Got out and tried it and no go. Headlights flash and then nothing.
Need a scan tool that can read Body Control Module (BCM).
Need to look at remote start fail history.
