Silverado key fob not working

11 posts in this topic

'00 Chevy Silverado

The key fob will unlock the doors fine but it will not lock them. It will activate the security when I press the lock button but the doors do not lock. Both the lock/unlock work fine on the door switch. I tried reprogramming the fob and it still does the same thing. I would think the batteries in the fob are fine because everything else works. Any ideas on where the problem could be?

Have you taken the fob apart to check battery? Has to fob gotten wet in the past?

I had the same problem on the Saturn except the unlock would not work. Took it apart and found what looked like pop between the button and the contacts on the circuit board. Cleaned it off with electrical cleaner and it has worked great since.

I should add that anytime we have a key FOB problem at the shop we always ask that the customer bring in the spare if available. If everything works with the spare than we can focus on the other FOB.

I will have to take it apart and check it out. Thanks for the suggestions.

I had the same issue with my 04. I pulled the fob apart and cleaned everything and it's worked fine since.

Well, I pulled it apart and it looked real clean. I cleaned it twice but it still didnt solve the problem.

Reason why I asked about taking apart was to make sure and get rubber push pad back in place correct. This pretty easy though and hard to put out of place.

Unless someone else has any further info to give, I would say the fob it self is broke/worn out. For some reason I have seen the lock sides fail on Ford and Chryslers before.

I would have to say it is time for a new fob.

Unless the keyless remote module is not allowing the lock function to operate.

Do you have a spare FOB? Have you tried the spare FOB?

I dont have a spare fob. I will probably just order a replacement fob and see what happens.

Sounds like a reasonable next step.

Well, got my new fob and it does the same thing. Where is the remote module for this? Is there anyway to test it?

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
