    Yeah I have the same problem but I just did what the handbook said was to hold down the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 7 seconds or until it starts to lock or unlock on it own. So far it is working but for how long?

    i have the same problem...Although it happened for my Chevrolet Lumina S 2007.. I thought it was a fuse...i guess i will take it to the dealer to check for it and they will need 3-4 days :S

    same problem, remote does not work until I manually unlock doors and then the locks work until I leave it alone for a few minutes.

I had the same problem. The dealer thought I was crazy when I explained the problem. They would drive the car and then try it and obviously it worked. They said it was fixed. It happened again. So they replaced the remote saying there was an internal failure. It still was a problem. They finally called chevy headquarters and found out there is an updated receiver for the 2007 model. I installed it and now it works. Good thing it was still under warranty.

Sounds like the receiver in the vehicle is starting to go bad. You can also try re pairing the remote fob to the transmitter sometimes that works, but over time the transmitter sometimes will fail

SOURCE: keyless entry doesn't work, batteries good in transmitter,fuses good

there is a tester that checks for Rf signals from your remote. if the batteries are good, you should get a strong signal from it. most likely the remote went bad

Have you tried changing the battery in the remote? Also try unhooking your cr battery overnight to see if it resets the module

SOURCE: 2007 Chevy Equinox - with

believe it or not you need to take it to the dealer. There is a software reprogram for the remote control door lock receiver to fix the probelm - really common on tahoes and suburbans. Go to the dealer and tell them about bulletin #06-08-52-002g. It probably will need new remotes also. Try and get the dealer to warranty it since its a known product defect and a known problem

Does the spare remote work? Have you tried to reprogram it? These remotes are very cheaply made and prone to key pad failure. To program the remote click this LINK, if that doesn't work buy anew one on eBay for cheap.

Dealer is correct that you have too replace the bcm, so i would tell you to call junk yard and get one. Cheap $ 50.00 put it in by yourself. Right hand side of the glove compartment. behind the fuse box with couple connectors on it, or have some person with knowledge to do it.
