Vanilla, slightly melted. Preferably in a Styrofoam cup, large in size. Make sure you bring a Pepto-Bismol chaser. Dairy products give me the runs.

When you open the key fob with the board facing you, look near the top right hand corner. There's a rectangle shaped chip, check the prongs. I checked mines both times when each of my remotes wouldn't keep sync with the car, each time it was loose.

Resolder it or you can even use permanent glue between the chip & board to hold it firm if you're not comfortable with soldering. Make sure the prongs have a good connection. This has also increased the battery life. You will need a pointed iron tip.

Don't use glue! That can definitely create a issue with the connection! Always resolder a cold solder joint.

Done!

Did this today on my 99 C5 I baught yesterday. Worked great on the onlY fob he had that has not worked for awhile he said. He also had the battery upside down too . But I got it for 8k so I'm not complaining.

Now to pull the tranny and torque tube to do the noisy pilot bearing and clutch and slave to boot.

Thanks for this fix. Saved me over $100!

I see that you are using the hell out of the search function! It works like crap but if dig long enough, you're bound to find something.
