Question type: General

Remote battery dead? If not then something has happened to either the remote or the receiver in the vehicle. If it is still under warranty take it in.


It may have to be reprogramed. Was the papery disconnected or was it jumps started? The computer is a finicky thing. But do check the battery first. The GMC came with two remotes. Did you check the other one? Fuse? Alarm system? Does the rear deck lid function? How about the remote start? Alarm work? If nothing works, it is a fuse, battery, remote, or $$$$.

Neither remote works. Manually everything functions so far. Do not know where vehicle receiver is located or how to check. I also will check to see if iPhone will open and close, start, etc. Just tried key remote and it unlocked car, then stopped working again. Intermittent is no fun. Thanks for any suggestions. Frank
