Default Re: 2003 Saturn VUE Remote Keyless Entry Stopped Working

I took the VUE up to the dealer yesterday afternoon. The service manager reprogrammed the key fobs to re-associate them with the car. This did not work. He set up an appointment for me with a tech.

Went back this afternoon to have the tech look at the situation. He checked all the batteries and tried to reprogram the fobs as well. He discovered that there was no communication with the BCM. After re-flashing the programming of the BCM, the key fobs started working again. The dealer only charged me $70 USD for this, which felt nice and reasonable. Their only caution was that it is possible there is a larger problem with the BCM, so if the problem recurs it may be time for a new BCM.

We're back in keyless entry business.

(What a lazy American I am... Can't be bothered to put a key in my car door!)
