Turning off the OnStar in a 2005 TrailBlazer

My friend's OnStar is not activated. The button on the mirror was pushed by accident. Now every time you open the door, sit on the seats, turn on the car and radio the OnStar says "OnStar not activated". She has called OnStar and they say its a dealer problem and the dealer says its an OnStar problem. The dealer told her to remove the panel in the back of the car by the windows but there is nothing to remove. How do you get this to turn off or can it be unplugged? Please help. Thank you,

    Onstar cannot locate my vehicle and I cannot place a call. Dealership says it is the module. Any ideas?

    Dealership says module needs replacing. Onstar cannot locate my vehicle.

    I have seen all the videos how to sync your cell to the car and when I try it the Onstar keeps coming on and telling me to just say number. I do not want to pay for OnStar to make calls, how do I get around it or if I can't will I be charged to make by calls using it?

The OnStar module is under the rear seat, passenger side. You should be able to just pull the connectors out of the module. Just the rectangular ones.

The dealer is thinking about the power amplifier for the Bose radio system. That's in the fender at the right rear of the car, but that's not the issue here.

Two interior lights will not go out


Bad door switch, or bad connection to it. Usually looks like a little push button pin type switch in the door jamb. Try pushing them (1 per door) in and out by hand a few times just to see if the lights go out (one at a time keep other door(s) closed) Sometimes they can be adjusted if it just the door not making full contact with the switch causing it not to activate. If no luck, try removing them from door jamb and manually connect the wires together to see if the switch itself is bad, if so, replace switch. Only other thing I could think of is a bad switch where you can turn on the interior lights manually from the light control. If you can't get it to work, you can always pull the courtesy light fuse so you don't run your battery down while you investigate the problem.

Can't activate onstar in the vehicle by the blue button on a 2004 envoy


Is the LED on the right side of the mirror green or red? If it's red, or not illuminated at all, there is a problem in the onstar system that needs to be diagnosed with a scan tool. Also- that model may also still have the analog onstar system. GM had an upgrade program that ran for a few years that allowed you to upgrade your onstar to digital hardware. If you're still running the analog onstar hardware, it's not going to work. Again, going to a reputable dealer would be the best way to find out what's going on.

How do unlock the door on a chevy pick uo truck


  • Use the key. Insert the ignition key into the lock on the driver's side and turn the key counterclockwise until you hear a thump. Return the key to its original position and remove it from the lock.
  • 2 Use the remote control for keyless entry. Unlock the doors with the remote control on your key fob. Press the button with the picture of an open lock once to unlock only the driver's-side door and twice to unlock all the doors.
  • 3 Call OnStar. OnStar can unlock your car remotely regardless of your location. You must have an active subscription to OnStar and your personal identification number (PIN) to unlock your Silverado this way. OnStar is free for one year on all new GM vehicles, but you must pay a monthly fee after the subscription expires if you wish to keep the service active.
  • 4 Call a locksmith. A locksmith can unlock your Silverado if you do not have your key.
  • 5 Break a window. As a last resort, you can break one of your truck's windows and unlock your door from the inside. This will probably set off your Silverado's alarm. If you find your key inside the truck, put it in the ignition immediately after unlocking your door and turn the starter to the "On" position to deactivate the alarm.

I bought a new Keyless remote for a 2007 Forester from a Subaru Dealer to replace an original one that went bad after 2 years. I have followed the directions in the owner's manual to program it, but can't...


IMPREZA: 2005, 2006, 2007 and
FORESTER: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Check for Immobilizer key on Forester XT models only.
information is always subject to change and correction imp05keylessremote1.jpg
new remote for 2005 Imprezas.
This is not the same remote as the 05 Legacy/Outback remote which also has truck/gate release on the front and a red panic button on the back.
Lock: press Lock button for 2 seconds or so to lock car, and arm optional security system. The car with chirp once and turn signals flash for locked, 5 short chirps and signal flashes if any door is not fully closed. The dome light goes on for 15 seconds and ignition key ring (if present) will light for 30 seconds when unlocked.
Unlock: press unlock one time for driver's door, press again within 5 seconds to unlock all doors inkling rear gate (wagon). The system does not open the trunk.
Panic mode: press and hold lock button for approx. 3-4 seconds to activate Panic mode. I panic model the horn honks and turn signals flash until either the lock or unlock button is pushed again.
Finder mode: Press lock button 3 times within 5 seconds to activate Vehicle Finder mode. The horn will honk once and the turn signals will flash 3 times
Distance: works within approx. 30 feet depending on battery strength, nearby concrete walls and etc.
Audible Chirp On-Off: the system will chirp when locked or unlocked. To turn OFF the chirps, unlock the door and then push both lock and unlock buttons at the exact same time for 2+ seconds. There will be 2 chirps indicating the the audible is off. To turn the chirp back on, repeat the process and the system will chirp one time when it is back on.
Battery: as the battery ages it will only work as you get closer to the car. When a battery is replaced, the transmitter must be re-synchronized with the Keyless control unit. To synchronize, press the lock or unlock button 6 times.
Programming: 4 codes may be programmed.
Sit in driver's seat and unlock all doors. Open and close the driver's door
Turn the ignition key from LOCK to ON position 10 times within 15 seconds. Be sure to stop at both lock and on. The horn will HONK once to indicate transmitter programming mode is activated. Leave key in LOCK position and don't remove it from ignition.
You now have 45 seconds to complete the programming as below.
Open and close driver's door again.
Push either lock or unlock button on the remote you want to program. The horn will honk 2 times when successful.
To continue and program other remotes at the same time: open and close the driver's door and push lock or unlock on the remote. The driver's door must be opened and closed between each remote you want to program.
Done programming? remove the key from the ignition and the horn will honk 3 times.
DELETE old codes? Reprogram 4 times, it will overwrite old codes.
Alarm Security System: optional on all models. When locked there is one chirp (can be turned off, see above), the turn signals will flash and the red 'security' light will start to flash once every 2 seconds except for STi which flashes twice every 2 seconds.
There will be 5 chirps if a door, hood, and trunk or gate is not fully closed
You can also arm the system by using the power lock button on the driver or passenger door as you get out of the car and then closing the door behind you.
Disarm the system: push unlock for 2 seconds
Lost remote, alarm activated? When you can't use a remote to turn off the system: open the door with a key or try to start the car and the horn will start to honk. Turn the key on-off 3 times within 5 seconds and the alarm will go off and you can start the car. It's simple!
VALET mode: To set valet mode or just to disable the security alarm system: 1. unlock all doors 2. physically open the driver's door 3. hold the UNLOCK button on remote for 2+ seconds. The red 'security' light will then flash 2 times a second until the car is turned on.
System has been Tripped (except for STi): if you unlock the door with the remote and it chirps the signal light flash 4 times, the system has been triggered;
Identification mode: To find out what happened and why the system was triggered:
Open and drivers door, leave it open. Turn ignition key from LOCK to ON 2 times and then leave in LOCK position.
Tripped code: 1 security light flash: a door has been opened, 3 flashes when the impact sensor was triggered, 4 flashes when the ignition was messed with or battery disconnected

Radio speakers seem to be muted. I pushed INFO button, did this cause something to mute ??


Some radios have phone buttons that mute the speakers so you can talk on the phone. If you have Onstar and no active subscription it can also mute the radio thinking you are trying to talk to Onstar.
