    Key Fob and Driver number

    Hi

    When i bought my truck i had 2 keyfobs, when putting the key in the igition for each it said "Driver 1" and "Driver 2", now when i do it they are both "Driver 1", so how did dirver 2 get reset to driver 1?

    Also how many drivers can you have? (i assume 2 as thats how many seat memories it has)

    I thought they were numbered one and two on the back and you had to program them to the car with a tech 2 but I could be wrong

    The only thing thats been done was new TPMS sensors fitted, which needed to be learned (not by a TECH2 though).

    It could be a bad passenger door module

    Both the keyless entry and the tpms work through that module

    Re: Key Fob and Driver number

    Great link Dutchman. The first link says the process will erase all previous fobs and the second link tells how to assign number one and number two on the door panel switch but how does the op assign the remotes to driver one and driver two? When you can program up to four remotes in the first link do you know if the vehicle assigns them and remembers them in order as remote one, two, three, etc?

    Thanks

    Edit: after re reading this I wonder if you assign the remotes in the first link, then pick the one you want to be driver one, use it to lock/unlock the car, set your number one settings, then press and hold the driver one button on the door. Then lock/unlock the door with the remote you want to use as driver two, make all your settings and press and hold the driver two button on the door and now the truck remembers which remote was driver one and which one was driver two? Maybe it works that way?

    If I remember key turned to run, do your settings, press 1 or 2 turn off ignition, press lock on fob

    Guys the fobs are assigned in the order you program them
    I know as my dad got a replacement fob(only came with one) for his h2
    The dealer programmed mine as being driver 1 and his as driver 2
    When we got home I reprogrammed them using the steps I have and it worked like a charm till my remote crapped out(it was replaced under warranty)and I had to do it again

    No need for a tech-2 and you can program up to 4 remotes to one truck but only two is tied to the memory system for the seat the other two only recall the DIC settings
