2007 Chevrolet Impala

Electrical problem
2007 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 43000 miles

I have this 2007 impala that has the same key fob intermittent problem where after a few minutes neither of our two fobs get response from the car. By unlocking the door manually with the key, they again respond, but after shutting the car off and waiting a few minutes they get no response again.

your database has a similar issue with a 2007 avalanche ( Posted at Wed Oct 29, 2008 3: 33 am

does the bulletin you mention apply to all 2007 models?

could you please make the bulletin contents availble to me?

I would really appreciate any help you can be for me as I often feel taken advantage of at car dealers and repair shops.

Here is what your looking for, Some customers may comment about one or more of the following conditions: " The remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitters will not program, function and/or the RKE transmitter low battery message is displayed.

" The Service Tire Monitor System message is displayed.

" The new RKE transmitter cannot be programmed.

" The remote keyless entry (RKE) and/or remote vehicle start (RVS) transmitter has poor range.

Any of these concerns may be caused by an internal fault with the transmitters and/or the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) software/hardware. Replace the RCDLR module and the RCDLR antenna. You will get 2 new key fobs also. Post back if this helps.

What Brian 1, told me was in fact correct.
I had the RCDLR and antenna and key fobs replaced and everything works as it should. I wish this was something they could tell is going bad cause I'm out of my warranty and it cost almost 500 buck for this repair. I get oil changes + tire rotations at the dealer every 3000 miles its a shame this didnt happen in warranty.

But again thanks Brian 1, your info was correct.

Warmest wishes,
