Sounds like a security issue. Did you replace the battery for the key fob? Did they check for codes? Whay codes did they find?

I had goodyear install battery. The Chevy dealership did Diagnostic. I will call the dealership where the truck is at and ask them about the codes. I guess with Chevy's when something is change, replaced they have to reset things. Goodyear would not know that. Thanks
