07 has a tech bulliten on the remote system

My 07 SS remote only worked when within 10 feet from the car. Turns out its a tech bulliten and they swapped out the transmitter and reciever. ALso fixed the steering culumn clunk.!

did you happen to take a look at the solder points where the battery "holder thing" meets the circuit board? on mine, the solder came loose and thats why the remote stopped working. there should be 3 points with solder, total.

If its a new remote, then to my understanding it NEEDS to be reprogrammed at the dealership.... asking if the charge you for that or not is kind of a silly question... i mean come on... we are talking car dealerships here... they charge you for the air they inflate your tires with.

Yeah these remotes suck... i replaced my battery thinking it would help and im still lucky if I hit a 50 foot range... if there are cars parked next to me then FORGET ABOUT IT.
