Do other shops (other than dealers) have Tech2 equipment? I know several people who have automotive shops. Is there a chance they have Tech2'* or is the equipment limited to Chevrolet/GM dealers?

I highly doubt it. Tech2'* run about $4000 a piece. But the thing is, if you do find an independent shop that does have one, they will probably charge just as much as the dealer would. (they have to compensate for the cost of the equipment)

Did you have a chance to PM your friend about this? Any response?

I figured the Tech2'* were a GM thing - just thought I would ask. I'll keep it in mind when I visit the local shop and ask them. I think they specialize in GM so maybe they have the equipment. I have other work performed there periodically so maybe they'll give me a good deal.

Thanks

If you come to the Northern California area I will program them for a minimal fee, Hint: I drink coors light
Like I said before some shops are AC Delco sponsored and they will most likely have a tech 2. We also have a shop in town that specializes in GM products and I'm sure they have a tech 2 as well. You just need to look in the yellow pages and start calling around. Some high end stereo shops also have software to get into the body control module you might try and calling them and see if they can program the fobs.

I was on the phone today with a used car salesman (don't laugh, he was a very nice guy) and he helped me with part of my problem.

The short answer is my remotes still don't work.

However, I learned something from the salesman. He actually went out on the lot while I was on the phone with him and reprogrammed the key fob for a 2003 Tahoe while I was on speaker phone. During that time we realized the instructions should not be ON OFF ON OFF. Instead they should say ON ACCY ON ACCY.

For instance, just like you turn the key to ON (just shy of start) you don't turn the key OFF. Instead you stop just shy of OFF at ACCY (accessory).

We found this out when I told him my car was honking the horn lightly during the ON OFF ON OFF cycle. That'* when he realized the horn is not supposed to honk until you exit the programming cycle.

I tried the ON ACCY ON ACCY cycle and it makes more sense. Unfortunately, the key fobs still don't work. The salesman mentioned that once in a while he has come across fobs that don't work. When he encounters a fob that doesn't work he checks the battery and if that'* not the problem he has to return the fobs and buy another set.

So I'm still looking for answers. Are my fobs bad? Am I really in programming mode? Does the 2005 Suburban require programming via the Body Control Module? Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks

If you got it into programming mode and your fobs didn't program they most likely are not the fobs for your application.

Default Update - 1 Fob Works

Okay, here'* the latest. One fob works the other does not. Using the new sequence posted above: ON ACCY ON ACCY gets me into programming mode and one of the fobs will program, the other will not.

I checked the batteries by putting them into a headlamp I have that uses the same cell. Batteries make the headlamp shine bright.

I opened the fobs to ensure no residue/dirt was on the contacts. Both look good. I used a pencil eraser on the contacts to ensure the contacts were clean. Still only one programs. I changed the sequence to try programming just one, both of them, one and then the other and vice-versa. I switched out the molded buttons thinking that may be the problem. Only one of them programs.

Unfortunately technical service (where I purchased the fobs) is closed for the day and the weekend. I guess I'll resume all of this on Monday.

Thanks again for your suggestions. If you have any more ideas please let me know.

P.*. I also purchased an AC/Delco replacement for the DVD remote. The DVD remote arrived today. But it doesn't work. Does it need to be programmed/learned too? Guess I'll start another thread for that.

I'm glad you got one fob to program! I was in Autozone the other day and they had a key fob tester on the counter. You could go in there and see if your fob is transmitting.

Do both fobs have the same part number on the back of them?
