Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

'99 chevy tracker power locks work intermittently

I just got this car from my mom the power locks do not work all the time. I changed the battery in the remote twice now but no real change. When the power locks actually work I have to be less than a foot from the door to get any response. A couple times it wouldn't work at all in the morning but by the afternoon it would work. what the hell is going on?

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)

99 Chevy veture .Why the heater ,power windows and auto lights don't work at the same time some times

possibly a short in the system if they are intermittent check fuse to make certain the fuse is not ready to blow or simply replace if it resolves the problem assume fuse was ready to burn out or not seated properly.. if still a problem get a test light and check wiring harness for a short. some cars are known to have issues with shorts around the battery when a harnesses runs under the battery the battery tends to get acid leakage that will cause damage to the harness and cause them to short out.. hope this helps good luck

yes you can move it to the other side of the street. Just dont run it more than a few minutes because without the belt the water pump won't turn. Just be aware that the power steering wont work either in this process so it will be difficult to steer.

How do you program a remote key for a 2000 Chevy Tracker after battery replacement?

i heard this from a friend a long time ago and i believe he said after you put in batteries stand within 6 feet from the car hold down both lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about twenty seconds and while your holding it, it will make certain chirps/horn sounds...these noises are the car setting safety features like all doors unlock if it four door or only front doors and so on, but this is all i can remember...hope this helps!
