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?

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
