Nope, you sure don't, I ordered a bunch of the batteries off of Amazon, had my 2012 LTZ RS for 4 years next week, replaced the battery twice. No reprograming needed.I tried to search on this couldn't find anything using the search..Basicicly trying to find out if you have to go through the whole reprogram procedure if you just replacing the Batteries in the FOB in a LTZ...?
I take the battery out of my key fobs plenty of times before when I clean out all the gunk that gets trapped in there never had to reprogram anythingI tried to search on this couldn't find anything using the search..Basicicly trying to find out if you have to go through the whole reprogram procedure if you just replacing the Batteries in the FOB in a LTZ...?
What's the name of your dealer, would like to visit him because I always enjoy getting screwed.
Just about the only electronics that require code to run properly, the remote codes are permanently burnt in. Your vehicle uses flashram to copy that code. Have the 2LT, can do this myself, but only required if getting a new remote that has a different code.
On second thought, really don't like to get screwed by dealers, but some really try their best. Paid a little extra for a Pro Duracell, ones that came with it, no brand name, made in India, didn't last very long. Duracell is still good after over three years now.
Other vehicle remotes and the batteries I had in them lasted longer than the vehicle itself. Know for a fact the remotes for my garage door opener are over 16 years old now. But not so with TV remotes, always switching channels trying to find something worth watching.
Actually, this bulletin is required by the FCC. The key fobs transmit in an "unlicensed" band so there is no protection from other transmission sources.well so far so good with new batteries in the remotes, its too funny though, chevy has this BS service bulletin that say if a customer cannot start their car it cold be from outside electronic interfereance and just their "out" to saying we don't know really how to fix the problem!
