Last week, I purchased a '05 STS4. The dealer, however, only had one fob so he ordered me a new fob (#2.) Well, today the dealer programmed the new fob, but he did it to read as fob #3. Consequently, the fob will open the doors and start the car, but it will not recall the #2 memory positions. So, how do I retrain the fob to be the #2 fob?

Although this is my first post on this forum, I am a member of the corvetteforum.com ('05 Black/Red/Black Corvette) and the avalancheforum.com ('07 Black/Tan Avalanche.) From my previous experience, the forums are full of useful information. For example, today I brought in the TSB number for the tranny software update and now the tranny shifts smooth as silk. Thanks everybody!!!

As soon as I get some pictures taken, I'll post them.

Have him delete all the fobs out of the system and then reprogram them correctly since the car still thinks you have a second remote.

Took the car back to the dealer on Friday. Unfortunately, to erase the existing fobs without an unrecognized fob, the dealer has to do it. In any case, the fobs are now working correctly.:bouncy: :)

I'm sorry to see that you and Benjamin had such a hard time with this. I'm glad you got it fixed. I am quite certain that I fixed this myself using the procedure in the manual. I had the same situation as you - Fob 1 and 3 instead of 1 and 2. I was able to reprogram the car for the same two fobs without a trip to the dealer. Maybe there is some difference in our cars' software level or I did something slightly differently without noticing it. Anyway, bottom line is you're all set. Enjoy the car!
