Re: Sources other than dealers for extra key fobs

Sorry! Should have reported back sooner... So I took the $39 aftermarket fob from Cars&TrucksRemotes.com to my local full-service locksmith (auto keys are one of their advertised specialties) who cut the pull-out key in the fob for $25 (I also bought a spare key blank and had that cut as well, a...

Re: Two questions about programming new keys using two existing fobs

To close this thread and hopefully help someone else in the same situation that I was, here are the answers to my questions: Question 1: Owner's handbook drawing for fob programming using two recognized transmitters only shows one fob in the backup location in the center console... Answer: The drawi...

Re: Two questions about programming new keys using two existing fobs

Yep... The link helped! That thread indicates that I'm not the only person who ran into trouble with programming an aftermarket version rather than an OEM fob. Same symptoms. Returned my aftermarket fob (carsandtrucksremote.com had no problem with a return... bless them!) and have ordered their OEM ...

Two questions about programming new keys using two existing fobs

I bought an aftermarket key fob for $39 and just had the key blade cut for $25 for my 2020 Bolt LT. The instructions in the owners handbook for "Programming with Two Recognized Transmitters" seem straightforward, but I've run into two issues: 1. Instruction #1 says to "Place the two r...

Re: Sources other than dealers for extra key fobs

Thanks to you both for some excellent intel. I decided to give it a whirl with a knockoff fob, given that I've got the two brand new working ones right now (so I'm not desperate for success) and given that the price was low enough that I can take a little risk. It's a "Aftermarket Smart Remote ...

Re: Use of the cargo well - 2020 Bolt LT

I LOVE PROFESSOR JOHN KELLEY!!!!!!!!!!!! His videos are EXACTLY what I need to understand my new ride. I had zero idea that the main propulsion unit in a Bolt is about the size of the 12 volt generator for my '71 VW Bus. Absolutely amazing. And this guy is the cool professor we all wanted back in sc...

Sources other than dealers for extra key fobs

2020 Bolt LT We received two key fobs when we bought the Bolt last weekend, but I'm a paranoid guy and want to have a backup at my house in case of a catastrophe. The local Chevy dealer has quoted me $243 for the fob plus $160 for the programming (I'm assuming that the total cost includes making sur...

Re: Use of the cargo well - 2020 Bolt LT

I suspected that without the foam insert, the existing well cover would be insufficient to support anything over a couple pounds. Thanks for confirming same. Crafting some sort of plywood support plate wouldn't be a problem for me. What I need to know is whether not having the hard foam block in the...

Use of the cargo well - 2020 Bolt LT

Just bought a deeply discounted new 2020 LT a couple days ago, so please be gentle with this virgin EV owner... In inspecting my new ride, I came across what the owner's handbook oddly calls a "cargo management system", basically a shaped piece of hard foam that stores a towing eyelet and ...
