Keyless Entry Problem / Solution (GM Key Fob 22733524)
The unlock button on my new key fob quit working weeks ago. Thanks to
YouTuber trando2010, I found a quick and easy solution to this issue that I
had to try and share with you.
Here is his original video link :
GM Key Fob Fix (Works with many different fobs)
Made this video to show how you can cheaply and easily fix your key fob if
you have one or more buttons that no longer function. This fix works with a
TON of different fobs that GM uses, you can check the website that sells
these for a complete list of compatible vehicles/fobs. I am in no way
affiliated or employed by this company, I just had a dead button on my fob
that was driving me insane and this fix works like magic so I wanted to
share the knowledge.
Simply put, the buttons stop working due to worn carbon pads on the back
side of the buttons. These pads are what complete the circuit for whatever
function you want which then sends the proper signal to the vehicle.
Without a completed circuit, the signal is never sent, and the button
appears to be dead.
With the insert you can purchase from www.keylessfix.com you can restore
all your buttons to their proper working state. Simply pull your key fob
apart, remove the circuit board from inside, and place the insert into the
button cavity with the SMOOTH SIDE DOWN, against the buttons. Reassemble
the fob and all your buttons will now work.
There is another issue some may run into where ALL buttons stop working,
but this is very likely due to the battery holder detaching itself from the
circuit board. To fix this issue, simply resolder the battery holder to the
circuit board in the three locations it is attached with.
Hope this helps save you money on fixing a seemingly broken key fob for a
lot less than you think!
