Mine plays up sometimes, havent a clue why....
What I do is :-

- If it is open and wont lock, I press the OPEN button twice, then the LOCK and it works.

or

- If it locked and wont open, I press the LOCK button twice, then the OPEN and it works.



Dont ask me why, it just does.... Think it is Chevrolet black magic at work...

If you use the key in the lockto operate the central looking and all the locks close and open simultaneously its pointing to the car not receiving or acting on the signal sent from the key fob.

Thanks for the reply Big Al it also does the same thing with the spare key should that still be the case?

Providing there is not a coincidence of both keys not transmitting it is looking more like the receiver in the car isnot accepting the signal or not processing it, the actual mechanics are still working as proved with the key in the lock.

Depends if they have dealt with the problem before, if not if they are competent to start at the most obvious and work down the line, also if they have the relevant parts to exchange and test to correct the fault. You are in there hands.
