Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

3 Answers

Keyless entry My keyless entry only works after I've opened the vehicle by key. Then it works for a VERY short period of time. I've tried both of my keyless fobs, to no avail. These are relatively new, and were replaced under warranty, just several months ago. What can I do to troubleshoot the problem.

    Same problem - it works only after you turn the key - or for a few minutes after turning off the car. I don't think it is the battery in the remote as I get the same result from both fobs.

    Let me know if you get any responses.

I had the same exact problem and fixed it by disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. I was also having a problem with the A/C compressor not kicking in and after the battery disconnect it is working fine.

I just bought a brand new keyless remote for my 2007 chevy tahoe. Put brad new battery in. After I program it, it works but only for a minute. I give it a minute and test it out again and it wont work at all. Could it be a problem with something other than the remote? Fuse? Electrical?

Same problem. Disconecting battery does work. Don't know for how long. You will need to reprogram settings and tire pressure. Both are expalined in the owners manual.

Our 2001 Mazda MPV doors are not locking. Before, we were able to lock all doors just by locking manually locking from the inside on the driver side and using the remote keyless entry. Now, when we try...


The clicking you hear is the vehicle asking for the program sequence to reprogram the locking system. Apparently something threw it out of sequence, ( a battery change , jumpstart, voltage spike , etc). The programming sequence that mazda uses is really kinda crazy. I was able to locate the sequence to try. If it does not work have the dealership flash the pcm, (another word for reprogram the powertrain control module). Here is the sequence:
1) Get in MPV with ignition key, and all fobs for the vehicle.
2) Close all doors and remove ignition key if it is in ignition.
3) Open driver's door
Note: Steps 4 and 5 must be completed in under thirty seconds.
4) Repeat the following three times
a) Insert ignition key
b)Turn ignition switch to on and then to lock
c) Remove ignition key
5) Repeat the following three times
a) Close driver's door
b) Open driver's door
Locks should all lock and then unlock within a couple of seconds--you'll hear the clicking sound
6) Press any button two times within five seconds on fob being programmed.
Locks should again lock and unlock
7) Repeat step 6 for all other fobs being programmed. When done with last fob, wait a few seconds and then you should be done with the reprogramming. Each fob should now work for this vehicle.

Keyless remote wont work


Many times if you purchase a used vehicle, the car lot only provides the key because they do not want to spend the money to purchase a key fob. A 2006 Lancer either has a 2 or 3 button keyless entry remote which you can find here: http://replacemyremote.com/

Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is


Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

My 2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 will not go into program mode to program my keyless entry pads


The security system on Toyota products are added by the distributor in your region. Many of those security systems will not allow more than 4 key fobs to be programmed into them. Have you owned this vehicle since it was new? Have you tried to program more that 4 key fobs into it? Have you tried programming it more than 2 times? If you security system has had more than 4 key fobs programmed in then the only way to get it to reprogram is the replace the security unit with a new one. I found this out the hard way and had to replace mine in my 2000 tundra.

How does key fob work


Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:

1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking).
2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.

When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.

Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.

Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.


Hope this helps....

Is it possible to program a new keyless entry fob for a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara?


try this...

1. Make sure vehicle is in Park
2. Press Vehicle Information button (has the icon of a car and an 'i')until 'PRESS *check mark* TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY' displays.
3. Press set/reset button. The message 'REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE' will display.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for about 15 seconds. A beep will sound indicating that the transmitter is matched.
5. To match additional transmitters at this time, repeat Step 3. Each vehicle can have a maximum of four transmitters matched to it.
6. To exit the program mode, you must cycle the key to LOCK.

If that doesnt work, go to: http://www.bing.com/search?q=how+to+program+a+keyless+entry+fob+for+a+2002+Suzuki+Grand+Vitara&go=&form=QBLH&qs=n&sk=

Keyless entry will not work . it will occasionally lock it but thats it. we change the battery still did not work.


I have a 2006 Chevy Uplander and I also drive a 2008 Chevy HHR for my company vehicle. this may not be your problem but in my personal vehicle and also our company fleet vehicles i have experiened Key fob failures. the first symptom was that the fob would stop working intermittently, then stop working all together. if you open it you may see that the clip that holds the battery and makes the circuit connection has come un-soldered from the board. if you are careful you can re-solder this and you are back in business. be careful not to damage the case. if it shows signs of opening, the dealer will not troubleshoot your problem and they will make you purchase a new fob.

Remote keyless entry


I assume you are talking about the key fob. First, pry it open and change the battery. Watch which way the + goes.
If your key fob works, and the battery did not fix it, try reprogramming following the instrcutions in the owner manual. May need both fobs present at the same time.
Note; This is different than programming the anti-theft key.

Hyundai Accent Keyless entry failiure - entry without alarm?


You might try Opening the Door and Opening the Hood and Disconnecting the Battery. This should reset the System. If this is the Factory Keyless Entry, There is a Relay and a Fuse for this. Check them and see if they are Bad or Blown.
