Looking for location of the keyless remote control module on a 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche LT


Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR)
The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) is a multifunction module that operates both the keyless entry system as well as the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system. When an RF message is received from a keyless entry transmitter, the RCDLR interprets this signal and will request via serial data that the body control module (BCM) perform the specific function, i.e. door lock, door unlock, or vehicle locate. The RCDLR also sends messages out to the 2 Way Advanced Remote Start transmitter.

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, without E52)
Top rear of the passenger compartment above the rear window


Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, with E52)
Left rear of the vehicle behind the D-pillar trim panel

Body Control Module (BCM)
On the lower left side of the I/P to the left of the steering column


Good luck !

My keyless entry for my 2008 Volvo s 40 won't work. I've tried replacing the battery but it still doesn't work. Anything I may can do before spending money on a new key.?


How are you trying to open the door , button on key fob ? With this system you can pull up on the drivers handle an it activates Antennas in the external side door handles (C30/C70 front doors, S40/V50 rear doors)
  • Antennas in the passenger compartment and cargo compartment
  • An antenna in the rear bumper
  • Quick lock motors in the lock units in the side doors
  • The remote keyless entry (RKE) receiver receives a signal from the key
  • The switch in the clutch pedal (manual transmissions) or a signal from the brake pedal switch via the central electronic module (CEM) (automatic transmissions)
  • Key-in switch.
  • Switch in door handle and lock button on handle .
    If a door handle is pulled outward, a switch closes that wakes up the system and activates the antennas in the handles on the side where the handle has been pulled out. If a valid key is within a radius of approx. 1.5 metres from the handle, the relevant door will open and the vehicle will unlock one or several doors. Which doors are unlocked depends on the settings for the system. The vehicle can also be unlocked if the handle is affected on the tailgate.

    2001 Mercury Villager keyless remote is malfunctioning


    Keyless Entry
    The keyless entry system consists of the following:
    • smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
    • keyless entry remote transmitters
    • power door lock actuators
    • body side door power door lock actuator
    • liftgate actuator
    • power door lock switches
    • door ajar switches
    • Principles of Operation
      All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
      The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
      • The ignition key still in the ignition.
      • A front door is open.
      • A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
      The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
    The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
    If it is you need a new one .

    I have a 2005 yukon. The rear door window will not unlock and open nor will the door. I have tried the keyless entry as well as the unlock feature on the door panel of the drivers side. So I can not get...


    {: ) Check the ECC fuse10amps at the IP fuseblock. If okay, it's most likely that you will need to replace your liftgate latch. The latch is inside the rear door trim, but since the rear door is stuck closed, it must be opened manually. I suggest you leave that part to the door masters, they know exactly the right technique. If you do it yourself, theres a chance you can break something.

    Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


    Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

    The drivers door opens with key remote but other doors will not open without unlocking the passenger door from inside. Just bought the car today and there is not a operators manual - can you help? Pete


    How To Do It!
    Time Required:
    10 seconds Tools Needed:
  • One of your keyless entry remotes Procedure:
    By default, the Focus Keyless Entry system requires you to press the unlock button twice to unlock all the doors, as the first press only unlocks the driver's side door. You can change this. 1) Stand within remote range of your car 2) Hold down both the lock and unlock buttons SIMULTANEOUSLY for about 5 seconds. The horn will chirp and lights will flash to signal that you have altered the setting. You can repeat this procedure to switch between "one press" mode and "two press" mode.

    Doors do not lock or unlock with the buttons


    Check to see if someone might have unplugged the switches or rain may have ruined switch if window was down... the keyless module goes to the relays that throw the actuators. sometimes door switches are wired so one is the master and the other goes through it as a slave. GM should be driver side. also could be broken wires in the door boots from opening and closing. The rear door may have problems with the linkage from the key cylinder to the latch or be rusted. Usually one can find the relays by using the keyless while listening for a light clicking sound under the dash driver side kick panel if you need to check for unplugged harness.

    Key Pad Entry does not work


    does the key pad light when you press a button at night? If yes, the fuse is ok.
    Do you have the plastic card with the permanent code in your owner manual packet? If yes, tryit.
    report back.

    Keyless Entry The keyless entry keypad is hardwired to the GEM. The GEM interprets the inputs from the keyless entry keypad and then controls the associated operation. The keyless entry keypad will be illuminated for five seconds when any button is pressed. Additionally, it will request the illuminated entry feature to turn the courtesy lamps on. If a lock all doors code is entered, the illumination will turn off, as well as request the illuminated entry feature to turn off the courtesy lamps. When pressed, the keyless entry keypad supplies the ground signal to the GEM or the GEM receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter. Then the GEM outputs a ground signal to the appropriate lock or unlock relay which supplies the power to the actuator to lock or unlocks all doors, including the luggage compartment. The keyless entry remote transmitter also unlocks the liftgate or activates the panic alarm by sending a signal to the GEM.

    Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help


    Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
