Remote Start/keyless entry problems. '05 malibu
Yes, yet another remote start problem thread.
I've been searching around the forum and just read a lot of posts about remote start issues but can't find the info Im looking for.
Looking at getting an '05 malibu LS cheap from a friend who sells used cars, It has a factory installed remote start setup (listed in the options on the window sticker); however the the lock/unlock & remote start buttons on the key fob don't work.
The remote trunk release works sometimes when really close, as does the panic button but nothing else no matter how close to the car. There are 2 key fobs for it and they both do the same thing. The power locks work normally from the DS door. No SES light, etc. Everything else works except this.
All of the power lock and remote start options are enabled in the D.I.C.
I've heard such things as the fob module going bad/ maybe a fuse but I would imagine other things wouldn't function if it were a fuse. Has anyone heard of this specific problem? or have more ideas as to what the prob is?
Thanks in advance for any help
