Question about Pontiac Torrent

1 Answer

Why does my 2007 pontiac torrent lock with key fob but then not unlock with fob, have to unlock manually with key, alarm goes off until I push unlock on key fob at which point all doors unlock?

Batteries in the key fob are new and it will unlock with key fob if I press immediately after locking. After a few minutes though, the unlock on key fob won't work until I unlock door manually and press after alarm goes off.

Sounds like the key fob is going bad and needs replaced.

Most commonly if this is a bad receiver, when receiver start going bad they will work and not worked intermittently. The most you can do at this point is try to reprogram the system and see if it begins to work properly again otherwise it's gonna be time to replace the receiver. Part of the receiver is working, see the receiver receives your signal but then it must perform an action and it's the action part of the receiver that has the problem.

If the reprogramming must be done at the dealer with a factory scanner, unfortunately the other scanners available will not do this.

Keep in mind that the best place to possibly get a replacement key fob would be from the dealership. They will be able to sell you the fob and program it to your vehicle for you as well. Also if you need any extra keys you can get them there as well.

Hope this helps. Keep us updated.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

Car alarm goes off when unlocking door


You will needs to think of it this way. Once you set your alarm it is looking for the corresponding signal to disable itself. That comes from the fob. If you don't use the fob and just use the key, the alarm system is doing its job and alerting you since it has not received the disable command from the fob. Either lock the door with the button when you exit the car if you want to use the key or use the alarm fob. This will also happen if you use the car manufacturers fob to unlock the car if you have locked it with the alarm manufacturers fob.

Hope that helps - I have hidden all of my original car fobs to help alleviate this problem!

How do I program my remote key fob for a 2007 pontiac grand prix?


Hey Lisa,
You are going to have to take the car and the key fobs to the dealership .
They will need all of the fobs , as they are all going to need to be reprogramed at once ;
The fob on an 07 Pontiac only can be programed using a diagnostic scan tool .
They will connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn key to on position.
Select 1 body,
then select special functions
then select program key fob,
select the number of key fobs you want programed.
Press and hold the lock and unlock key simultaneously for about 15 seconds until the power locks cycle to confirm the remote is programed.

WHEN I PUSH TO BUTTON TO UNLOCK MY 2007 HYUNDAI VERACRUZ LIMITED, IT UNLOCKS OK BUT THEN WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR THE ALARM SOUNDS UNTIL I TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH. AFTER THAT, EVERYTHING OPERATES NORMALLY. ...


the car has two codes one is fixed the other is a rolling code which changes each time you press the unlock button,the first is allowing you to unlock the car but when you open the door it thinks your trying to steal it and the alarm goes off,then when you put in key it is recognising the key and switching off the alarm....NOW if you follow the instructions in the book you can reset the alarm(as i worked for hyundai over 5 years ago i cant remember the sequence,sorry)

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.
