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...

Why does the horn randomly blow?


You may have to replace the key fob. You could just stop using it and go back to the old fashioned key.

CL220, fob wont open doors I can't get in the car, does this mean the battery is flat?


battery may be flat in the fob or the vehicle has forgotten the code for the fob. and will need resetting. change the battery use the key to open the door put key in the ignition. ( fob Ir old type leave fob off the key) turn to number 2 and press fob till doors lock and unlock. then its reset. dont be worried if the alarm goes off while doing this it will go off when the code is restored. if you have 2 fobs you will need to rest that one to.

Keyless entry remote programming


Hello here is the instructions for programming the key fobs

This procedure will add, replace, or invalidate all key fobs. This procedure requires that you have a known good key fob available, a new/replacement key fob, the vehicles mechanical key, and a scan tool.
Method 1 is also used for the initial programming of fobs to a new replacement RCDLR. In this instance, the new RCDLR comes ready to learn the first key fobs introduced. Perform the learn procedure as outlined, with the exception that the new RCDLR does not require a known good key fob be placed within the interior of the vehicle.
Note: This procedure is not available when the maximum number of fobs (4) have been programmed. If 4 key fobs are programmed to this RCDLR and this method is attempted, the driver information center (DIC) will display MAX FOBS LEARNED and the programming procedure will exit. Methods 2 or 3 must be used in this instance.
  1. The vehicle must be OFF.
  2. Place a known key fob and any new/replacement key fob(s) to be programmed in the cupholder inside the vehicle. DO NOT place any fobs in the console fob pocket at this time.
  3. Insert the vehicle key in the driver door lock cylinder located in the driver door handle and cycle the key 5 times within 5 seconds.
  4. The DIC will display a message: READY FOR FOB X (X = fob 2, 3, or 4). → If the DIC displays: OFF/ACC TO LEARN, the known fob has not been recognized. At this time, programming will revert to Method 2.
  5. If the DIC is displaying the correct fob number that needs to be programmed, skip ahead to step 9.
  6. If the DIC is not displaying the correct fob number that needs to be changed (i.e., the DIC is displaying: READY FOR FOB 3, and you wish to program FOB 1), use the scan tool to access the following: • Vehicle Control Systems • Computer/Integrating Systems • Module Setup • Remote Control Door Lock Receiver • Program Key Fobs
  7. Select the fob position you wish to program: Note: Selecting Invalidate All Fobs will erase any known fobs and will cause the DIC to prompt READY FOR FOB 1, requiring all fobs to be relearned to the vehicle.
    • Invalidate All Fobs • Program Fob 1 • Program Fob 2 • Program Fob 3 • Program Fob 4
  8. With the fob position selected, press the PROGRAM soft key on the scan tool. The DIC should display: READY FOR FOB X (X = fob 1, 2, 3 or 4, depending on the selected position)
  9. With the DIC displaying the correct fob position that is to be programmed, place the new/replacement key fob in the console fob pocket with the buttons facing forward.
  10. A beep will occur once the fob has been learned.
  11. If programming additional key fobs and there is no DIC prompt that indicates READY FOR FOB X, repeat steps 7 and 8.
  12. Exit programming mode by pushing the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition switch. Note: Failure to exit programming mode (press OFF/ACC) prior to pressing the UNLOCK button of each key fob programmed will result in that fob being inoperative. Pressing the UNLOCK button completes the programming sequence and is require to ensure transmitter operation.
  13. Press the UNLOCK button on each key fob that was programmed to finalize the programming and confirm system operation.

Kia Rio 1.5 diesel Factory alarm,car horn honking,side indicators flashing,unable to start the car. When I arm the car with the fob and unlock the door with the key then open the door the horn starts...


The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep
