Good afternoon,

These keyless entry modules can be a real pain when they don't want to work correctly.

Which module did you purchase already? I thought the keyless entry was controlled by the BCM on this year model, but I could be wrong.

where is it located?
NEW KEYLESS RECEIVER - GMC # 10385605
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

It's looking like I was wrong. The keyless receiver is in the liftgate module.

Does the lift gate open and close normally?

It's located right here:

You will need a scan tool to set it back up after replacement.

I do not think that one it it. They said it is under the dash. Part number 10385605
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

According to the wiring schematic the liftgate module controls the keyless. Maybe the module you are looking at is just for the power door locks and not they keyless function, but I'm not seeing that on the wiring diagram either. I sure can't remember any additional module under the dash for keyless on this car.

according to GM there is a remote keyless receiving module #10385605
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
but the pic you have and the one i have are 2 different modules
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Yeah, I don't know what that part is. Did the dealer give you that number as the keyless entry module?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
10385605 is the part number
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Here is the fault diagnosis tree from GM- no mention of a separate module from the one on the lift gate.

Where did you get that part number?

dealer
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I'm showing that module fits a cadillac or an express van. They are calling it the theft locking module. Can't find anywhere saying it fits your car.

They say same thing as before. That part fit all 2005-06 trailblazer and envoy
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

They have to be wrong. The keyless entry is controlled through the liftgate (or endgate on the XUV) module.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
do you have that part number?
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I'm really scratching my head on this one. I have replaced a half dozen of these liftgate modules for either a liftgate that won't work or keyless that won't work, or both.

I found one programming procedure that mentions the remote control door lock reciever AND the litgate module as needing programming after replacement. However, I can't find a listing for the remote control door lock receiver anywhere on any other diagram.

ok I ordered the one you said IDK I will install and see.
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I'll let you know if I can find something somewhere that shows whether there is a separate module.

ok installed the box had it programmed at dealer and still will not work
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Good afternoon,

Which box did you end up replacing, the lift gate module?

The power door locks work with the switch right? Just not from the key fob?

Does the key fob work at all? Panic button?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have to get close to back side of car for key fob to work. Unlock works on both fobs Lock does not work with either fobs Panic works. and master switch inside dr door works fine
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

How old are the fobs?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
according to the signal detector they are working fine
GMC Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

How weird. It sounds like they are just weak transmitters but if they are only a few years old they should work fine.
