stone stoner: wow chaz brown lol thanks alot worked like a charm but still ordering kit to fix my other key fob so thanks for the temporary fix who would have known a little foil would work lol
keylessfix: Good Job. That is actually how we first started to repair these remotes 4 years ago. But unfortunately it is very hard to permanently glue foil (metal) to silicon (rubber). Once it comes off, it will float around inside your remote causing the remote to actuate randomly whenever the loose foil makes contact to the circuit board.
Our solution was to make our Keylessfix pad which permanently fixes this contact problem.
Chaz Brown: I FIXED MY GM REMOTE KEY FOB SIMPLY USING ALUMINUM FOIL... I JUST CUT OUT SMALL LITTLE CIRCLES... I JUST GLUED THEM TO THE BACK OF THE RUBBER BUTTONS ON THE LITTLE PRONG BACK THERE, PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AN WHEN I PUSH THE BUTTONS NOW IVE GOT CONTACT BETWEEN THE BUTTONS AN THE CIRCUIT BOARD AN THEY WORK FINE NOW... BEST PART, I ALREADY HAD THE FOIL SO IT WAS FREE TO FIX!!!!!
Sam Fisher: I was about to take my remote to the dealership until i found your website. I have purchased 2 key less fix and will definitely recommend this product. I have to say this is by far a cheaper fix than the dealership.
bgregg55: Attempting to clean the button contacts only makes the problem worse by removing more of the conductive paint from the button contacting surface.
bgregg55: This fix works. Shame on GM for not offering this fix rather than selling you another fob with programming fee for $200 that will only last 2-3 years.
keylessfix: The tester is a KENT MOORE model number J-43241. It is the standard tester that most GM dealerships would use.
keylessfix: Cleaning the contacts is always a good thing to do, but the remotes that we designed our pads for have a different problem. Its not the dirt that is a problem, it is a worn down rubber button pad. The problem is a poorly manufactured rubber pad and it seems to be an issue limited to one generation of GM remotes (2005-2010 Cars and Minivans) Our Pads are guaranteed for life and will not wear down like the rubber pads do.
keylessfix: The problem that we correct with the Keylessfix Pad is an issue that is prevalent only with one generation of GM remotes. Mainly 2005 - about 2010. You can check our website to see exactly which models have this problem with their remotes. Older style remotes (like the GMC Savana) generally only need the dirt cleaned off the contacts or battery replaced and they will work again.
Alta9610: What is the brand of the frequency detector that you are using on the video?
Druman19: Instead of paying money for this, just clean your button contacts with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. They get grime on them over time, and stop working.
Richard Bla: Do you make this for a remote to a 2000 impala ls ?
John Ranger: Fantastic I would rather give you my 20 bucks them 100 to GM.
Jude Boaz: THANK YOUUUUUUU!!!!
Fat Bastard Pipes: How come you dont offer it for the other GM vehicles, like the GMC Savana?
