Hello - I just confirmed with a lock smith that my two key fobs are working. When he tried to program the key fobs to the truck, it didn't take. He tried a brand new one and it didn't work. He said the problem is on the truck side of things - fuse, module?? Has anyone experienced this? Any suggested solutions?
Much appreciated.

i remember back when i had my 08, there was a control module behind the glove box somewhere, that would get a loose screw.....I remember i had to take it in 2-3 times to get it fixed while under warranty...now it never completely quit working, but it would maybe work half the time...till i took it in....Might be something to look into..

I am still struggling with this. I also have a TPMS light on which could be related to the same issue as the key fob. I also know the reset for the TPMS is to put the emergency brake on, turn the key to start and then turn the light switch to the far left 4 times quickly. This results in two horn beeps. I am going back to work with a mechanic later this week to see if we can finally get the key fob working as well as to reset the TPMS. Will post if I am successful.

The process for TPMS reset on a 1st Gen has more steps than what is described in your post.

The TPMS sensor matching procedure is outlined below:

  1. Set the parking brake.

  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.

  3. Turn the exterior lamp switch from AUTO to OFF four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light starts flashing. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicates the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The LOW TIRE message displays on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

  4. Start with the driver side front tire.

  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire’s air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, turn the ignition switch to LOCK and start over beginning with Step 2.

  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.

  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.

  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.

  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the driver side rear tire, check to see if the TPMS low tire warning light and the DIC LOW TIRE messages have turned off. If yes, the TPMS sensors have been relearned. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.

    If the low tire warning light and the SERV TPM message on the DIC are on after completing Step 5 for the driver side rear tire, the sensor relearn process has not been successful. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF and repeat the matching process beginning with Step 2.

  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.

  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
