Fob Re-learn?

967 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  AllWheelEric
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 ('05 Black/Red/Black Corvette) and the ('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.

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!
