Default keyless entry

Is keyless entry a standard feature? The wife found settings in the information center, and being used, we were wondering if the fob might have been lost. We found a website listing it as standard equipment. Thoughts?

According to the 2008 dealer brochure, keyless entry is standard across all models.



I can't imagine that changed in 2009 models.

You can get replacement fobs at places like THIS and you will need to get it programmed (dealer or locksmith might be best option for this) so that it works with your vehicle.

Thank you guys so much!! We just bought the car Tuesday, and one of the few turn-offs was the lack of keyless entry. Who knew!? I had just priced aftermarket installation at $150. You guys just saved me $120!!!

Funny thing is, I had stopped by a GM dealership earlier today and asked them the same question. The dude in the service dept. told me it would cost me alot. Cause the build sheet they printed off didnt show keyless, and he said the computer would have to be changed out. Plus the keyless parts.

Thanks again!!

True, if your vehicle is equipt with the "convenience package" option (includes rain sensing windshield wipers, heated windshield washer nozzles, remote starter, and universal home remote) then you will need this remote.

Were the heated nozzles and rain sensing wipers only available in the package?

We dont have heated seats(no button to turn them on), garage door opener(just sunglass holder), rain sensing wipers, or heated nozzles(no wires going to nozzles). We looked up EVERY RPO code, and nothing was mentioned. Oh well, the keyless entry sure will be nice! Now to wait for it to come in.

Thanks guys!! I really appreciate the help!

Got me... The moment we saw the post saying it came standard, we ordered ours off the website John posted. Ill bet I would have had to pay twice as much at the stealership. That is, if I were able to convince the guy that it came standard.

Its all good. Our fob should be in this next week. Then we gotta order our replacement lumbar knob and bezel. After that, the last thing on the list is darker tint and we gotta get our driver rear lock solenoid looked at. It isnt unlocking like its supposed to. It seems to lock just fine though.

I would like to know if you find somewhere to order the lumbar knob bezel from, I need one of those also. I have not been able to find one for my 08 XR.

Lets try this...

h t t p : / / w w w .gmpartsgiant. c o m /parts/gm-knob-19210415.html

h t t p : / / w w w .gmpartsgiant. c o m/parts/gm-bezel-96839555.html

Less than $20, shipping included.

I have a buddy that works in the parts dept. at Battison Chevrolet in Duncan. Ill see if he can get the parts for under $20. That shipping is murder... More than the parts combined. Plus, if I can get them in person, that would be better.
