Weird Experience Programming a Fob (07 Cobalt)
I had a weird experience programming a fob for an 07 Cobalt. I've got a tech2, so I plugged it in and "built" the vehicle with current specs. Went into the key fob section & tried adding a new fob, but it kept giving me the error "possible wrong vehicle selected. Reselect vehicle". I tried adding the RCLDR but it said something like it was already installed.
I then "built" the vehicle as an 06. Went to the section under body control module where I could add fobs. It did the 60 second count down so I pressed lock & unlock and it actually responded! After the 60 second count down it gave me an error message but it still programmed the fob.
The fob in question is a 5 button 22733524. The only weird thing is that the "lock" button doesn't seem to respond, although it could be a bad button, I know they go bad. I also can't test the car start feature as you have to press lock and then hold the start button.
Could it be that the RCLDR for an 06 is installed in the 07 car?
