Default Key Fob not working

Worked great for about 3 months and then started working like crap after I bought the truck, then used the spare one. That also worked great for 3 months and then started working like crap... Has anyone had the same problem? Dealer has no answers right now. $40,000 truck and the Key Fob isn't working right... The remote start is useless right now to me

I had the same problem. Swapped out batteries, and still wasn't working. I took the fob apart and slightly bent the contacts to make better contact with the battery. Works like brand new now!

your warranty covers the key fob fix, no matter what it is

do your doors lock & unlock using the FOB/FOBIK ( Frequency Operated Button Interface Key ) ???
if they do, it is not necessarily the FOB
if your FOB unlocks on the drivers door on the first press, & pressing it again unlocks the rest of the doors & on the third press & holding it down opens your windows, i would be even less likely to think it was the FOB

the vehicle won't start using the FOB, IF the doors are not locked, ( they should automatically lock when you press the start button ),
it also won't start using the FOB, if the hood is not closed all the way

if the door sensors are all working correctly, I would almost bet that the hood latch sensor is faulty or out of adjustment

I hope that this helps a bit

Good Luck

I have already replaced the batteries in both of my FOBIK's for the second time.....since May. I use my remote start.....a lot.....and when I notice the range reducing, I just splurge on the new batteries. Each battery costs less that a gal of gas.....and lasts much longer.

Have the dealer try this TSB 08-010-10, it worked on my key fobs. It reprograms the wireless control module.
