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?

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
