Question about 1999 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

Remote & Door Locks

Just bought a 99 Yukon SLE and put a new battery in the one remaining remote (seller lost the other one). Had to "re synchronize" with the two-button method, and it sort of works now.

I can't figure out where to stand to hit the pickup sensor, and I can't trigger it to lock or unlock from more than about ten feet away.

Is this an RF or infrared based signal ?
Where are the pickup sensors located on the vehicle?

Perhaps related, what are the possible causes for the rear glass not to release with a double click on the appropriate button.

Thanks

Remote controls for factory alarm system are not working.


Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system. The transmitter does not send the same signal twice to the passenger door module (PDM). • The PDM will not respond to a signal that has been sent previously. This prevents anyone from recording and playing back the signal from the transmitter. • The panic button should still operate normally when the system is out of synchronization. • Resynchronization may be necessary under the following conditions: - The battery in the transmitter is very weak. - The battery in the transmitter was replaced. - The battery in the vehicle has been in a low or no charge condition for an extended period of time. • In order to resynchronize the transmitter with the PDM, perform the following steps: 1. Stand within 1.5 meters (5 ft) from the vehicle. 2. Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds. The door locks should cycle in order to confirm resynchronization.

Remote locks all door except the drivers side door,


Sounds like the power door lock actuator is bad in the drivers door. Its basically a solenoid. Its Toyota specific and probably not made aftermarket. It comes as an assembly with the latch mechanism. Its not a simple install for a novice but $350 sounds a bit steep. Call around and if you can find a better price.

Driver 2 Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) not working, Driver 1 is OK


To resynchronize your transmitter, stand close to your vehicle and press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter at the same time for seven seconds. The door locks should cycle to confirm synchronization. If the locks do not cycle, see your dealer for service.   I hope this works and good luck

'99 chevy tracker power locks work intermittently


You might thing about either taking the remote apart and cleaning the contacts. Or get a new remote of ebay (make sure to check the FCC ID and IMED ID of the back of the old remote to make sure they match the new remote)

You will also need the instruction on how to program (usually the seller on Ebay will provide these free of charge if you ask for them upfront)
