Question about 2008 Chevrolet Impala

Open Question

My (and my wife's) key fob wont unlock my 2008 Chevy impala door. The batteries are new on both fobs and worked a few days ago, now I have to use the driver's side door keyhole which tends to stick very badly. Oh, after I use the key to manually open the door, the key fobs will unlock/lock doors and open trunk for about 3 min afterwords then will go back to not working.

SOURCE: key fob no longer unlocks car doors or trunk

you may have to replace the remotes and then have them reprogramed for the car because they do go bad but if there is an autozone near you they will test the remotes for free

SOURCE: program second key fob

Your key can only be programed at the dealer. They have to use a scan tool and a unique id code that they get from the factory. It is done this way to help insure that the vehicle is less likely to be stolden.

SOURCE: my wife is stuck at the airport. the key fob on

On the driver's side door handle, there is a cap covering the key hole on the right side. On the bottom of the cap is a small ****. Use the valet key to pry it up and off. Then you may open the door, most likely sounding the alarm, so you will need to insert the remote in the ignition to stop the NOISE!!!! Hope this helps. This is how I lock my remote away when I go somewhere to run.

Can't unlock my 2007 Chevy impala with the key fab until I unlock the door with the key. When I park the car and exit the vehicle I can lock it with the key fob, but after a few minutes I cannot.


Battery is weak in key fob. You will see a small slit in edge of key fob. Pry it open to see what battery you need. Most are pretty common, cheap and easy to find.

2008 Altima with push button start. Why won't the fob unlock doors?


Insert key into and remove it from ignition more than six times in 10 seconds. When the hazards lights will flash twice insert key into ignition and turn to ACC position.
Then push any button on key fob once, the hazard lights will flash twice. Then open drivers door to END.
Should be all working again.

I cannot lock or unlock my car with my key fob


Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.

Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.
