Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The keyless entry was working off and on. Replaced the battery and now it won't work at all. Is there a reprogramming issue and how can we fix it?
Had the same issue. This is usually the key pad itself. Like your replacing the battery on the wireless remote, tear it down to the buttons, two outer case halves, remove the battery, and then the card itself. Look at the contacts on both the rubber buttons and the card. Do you see the grime and pasty goo that has built up on the contacts? Not to worry, just get some Iso Propolyn Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) that is more than 30% but not 100% and use Q- tips to dip into the solution and clean the contacts. Don't use 100% because you are trying to break up water solubles also and anything under 100% still has water in it. Do not dip the card into the solution either. This will damage it if you dip a microchip in the solution. You may need to go get a new battery before retrying.
