Question about 2006 Chevrolet Corvette
THis model has an immobilizer/transponder in the key that registers with the car. It is possible both batteries went dead if both have been used a lot or sat around, havent been changed since new, etc. If they havent been changed my suggestion is to try.. its a 10 dollar fix if thats all it is. Unless they both got damaged by water or other trauma to them. Otherwise its not the fobs that are broken but the receiver unit in the car that gets the signal from the fobs. All FOB's are FCC certified because they run on low power radio frequency to send a signal from them to the car. That same frequency is used to validate the fob being used to start car is the same as belongs to the car.. They MATE. At your local Autozone they ahve an energizer battery display that has a GENERIC reciever with a green light. Its set up to tell you if you need to replace the battery in your fob as the green light comes on with any received radio signal. This would be a way to test the FOBS and make sure they are broadcasting. You can get the batteries there too! If you determine they are working get ready to shell out some bucks.. I believe onstar is in your GM product and because of that the radio receiver for the keys and the onstar system are intertwined and have to be changed at same time...The one thing Im NOT certain of is if your corvette came when GM was offering 5 year warranties. If it did the FOBs wouldnt be covered but the receiver in teh car would be...
