Question about 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab
I bought a used truck and it didn't come with the keyless fob. I see them on e-bay but they say you need to know the manufacturer's code and fcc number. Wher can I find these?
UNLESS YOU ARE WITH A FAMILIAR WITH NEWER AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS, I WOULD ADVISE AGAINST DOING AN AFTERMARKET ALARM / KEYLESS SYSTEM YOURSELF. THE PASS KEY CODES YOU ARE TRYING TO GET WOULD REQUIRE A DEDICATED MANUFACTURER SCAN / DIAGNOSTIC TOOL TO GAIN THE NUMBERS FROM THE BODY CONTROL MODULE. THE LEADING SNAP-ON SCAN TOOL STILL WILL NOT GET THE INFORMATION YOU NEED.
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL VEHICLE DEALERSHIP AND SEE IF THEY CAN GET YOU THE NUMBERS YOU REQUIRE FROM YOUR VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER OR "VIN" NUMBER FROM THE VEHICLE.
AS FOR THE KEYLESS SYSTEMS AVAILABLE IN THE AFTERMARKET SCENE ANY SYSTEM WOULD REQUIRE A DEDICATED PASS KEY ENABLER PURCHASED AT AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR MOST 2002 AND UP DOMESTIC VEHICLES.
BEST THING TO DO IS INQUIRE WITH THE MANUFACTURER OF THE VEHICLE AT A LOCAL DEALERSHIP IN YOUR AREA AND SEE IF YOU CAN PURCHASE JUST THE ''KEY FOB'' FOR A REASONABLE PRICE VERSUS THE EXPENSE OF EVERYTHING ELSE. THE VEHICLE MAY EVEN BE EQUIPED WITH FACTORY REMOTE START OPTION.
JUST AN FYI ALSO, IF THE VEHICLE WAS PURCHASE USED IT MAY BE MISSING THE KEY FOBS BECAUSE THE VEHICLE WAS A REPOSESED ITEM, I HAVE SEEN THIS A FEW TIMES BECAUSE MOST LENDING INSTITUTIONS ONLY HOLD ONTO THE KEYS AND GIVE ORIGINAL AND EXTRA KEYS AND FOBS TO THE PARTY WHO PURCHASED THE VEHICLE NEW.
