When I purchased my 2017 hatchback I was only given 1 of the smart fob's. I purchased a used fob so, my question is do I need to have a new key cut for it if all I am using it for are the remote functions?
Well, no luck programming the used fob I picked up and now the Theft Deterrent fault message comes up and will not clear. Guess I need to break down and buy a new fob!The half hour procedure is a hassle, but it worked on my 2017 with the new fob (bought it used with one fob). 2016s did the quick procedure with only one fob, then I guess GM figured out a valet could make fobs for cars that way.
I ordered one of these last week so I'll have a 2nd fob for the 2016. Will review it for the forum when I get it. Might be a cheap Chinese replacement, might be a fake Denso/Chevy part, might be the real Denso/Chevy part (but I might not be able to tell the difference between the last two).
I will look for your review. No luck clearing the message by locking and unlocking with the key in the door. It's odd though that the car will start up and drive so far without any issues.In another week or so I should have my $30 Chinese fob. I'll start a new thread and review it.
