    Re: Keyless FOB

    There are multiple ways to program key fobs. I think you have to programe your fobs according to the following description:

    Method 3 - Key Fob Auto Learn

    This procedure will first erase all known key fobs. The procedure will then program a single or multiple key fobs. Method 3 is a series of three 10-minute key cycles, for a total of 30 minutes . This procedure requires that you have a replacement key fob and the vehicle mechanical key.

    Important: All previously programmed key fobs will be erased upon completion of the 30-minute programming procedure. The order in which the key fobs are programmed will determine its numbering position within the RCDLR memory. The first key fob programmed will be key fob #1, and the second key fob programmed will be key fob #2. The number stamped on the key fob case is for reference only: #2 can be programmed as #1.

    Do not place any known good key fobs in the vicinity of the vehicle when programming with Method 3. If the RCDLR recognizes a known good key fob during Method 3 programming, the programming mode will resort to Method 1.


    1. The vehicle must be OFF.
    2. Place the replacement key fob in the console pocket with the buttons facing forward.
    3. Insert the vehicle key in the driver door lock cylinder located in the driver door handle and cycle the key 5 times within 5 seconds .
    4. The DIC will display a message: OFF/ACC TO LEARN.
    5. Press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button.
    6. The DIC will display a message: WAIT 10 MINUTES , then it will count down from 10 to 0, one minute at a time.
    7. When the counter reaches 0, DIC will display OFF/ACC TO LEARN.
    8. Repeat steps 5-7 two more times, for a total of 30 minutes .
    9. The DIC will display a message: OFF/ACC TO LEARN.
    10. Press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button.
    11. A beep will occur and the DIC will display: READY FOR FOB 1. At this time all previously known key fobs have been erased. When fob 1 is programmed a beep will be heard and the DIC will display a message: READY FOR FOB 2.
    12. Additional key fobs can be programmed by taking fob 1 out of the pocket and inserting fob 2. If desired, up to 4 fobs can be programmed. Once 4 fobs have been learned, the DIC will display a message: MAX FOBS LEARNED, and automatically exit the program mode.
    13. If learning less than 4 key fobs, press the OFF/ACC portion of the ignition button to exit the program mode.
    14. Operate the active portion of each key fob in order to finalize the programming sequence and verify correct system operation.

    Re: Keyless FOB

    There's a thread with the part numbers. Are your #1 & #2 sequencial part numbers?

    Re: Keyless FOB

    First, when you reprograme as stated above and delete all fobs it does not matter what the number on the fob is. Mine are both #2, but I know the one I carry acts as #1 and the spare (wife's) is #2. The numbers on back are just meant as an identifier, they are in fact the same item.
    The fob pocket is against the rear panel inside the center console next to the power outlet. If you do not have an owners manual they are found in pdf format on-line, just Google it. Good luck...................... Joe P

    How many fobs are programmed for your car? Remote start only works on fobs set-up as #1 and #2. You can have up to four in total, but #3 and #4 will not remote start the vehicle. When it went into program mode, the DIC should have displayed a message similar to "Ready For Fob #x". What number was in place of 'x'?

    Tell me about it, I did the procedure twice because the first time my #1 FOB (bought on eBay) didn't work, then after I did it the second time, I realize the battery on the FOB was dead.

    You got the FOB for your year or the 08+ model fob ? how much you paid ?
    My current FOB is #2, do I require #1 ? I noticed w/ my #2 I can't remote start even though I have remote start enabled on my personal settings in my car.

    Re: Keyless FOB

    If it's matched as #2 it should remote start. That makes me think it is matched as 3 or 4. Have you done a rigorous test to prove it really is recalling Driver 2 preferences?
