2013 Silverado - Stolen Key & FOB / Programming

2013 Silverado - Stolen Key & FOB / Programming

Postby bj973 [OP] » Aug 26 2014, 4:10pm

I had my spare set of keys stolen from my house. What are my options?

Please shoot holes in my plan: I plan to get a new key blank and a new FOB. Dealer will cut/program the set. However... the stolen set is still out there. I understand that the dealer can clear the fob, but can the dealer clear the stolen transponder key code?

I can live with the stolen key matching the cylinders in the door/ignition, but if the stolen transponder key can be cleared, it wont start the vehicle - right?

That stolen transponder key will still work. I think you'll need a new door lock, ignition switch and fobs all programmed and keyed the same and then that should fix it. I am not 100% sure. Ask your dealer

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it is an electrical problem

Have your dealer clear all key codes from the vehicle then program your one old key and new key into the truck, the stolen key will no longer start the truck. Better have the dealer tell you what to do if the thief tries to start it and locks the anti-theft system up. As stated the key will open the door.

Dealer can CLEAR all keys and then add them in one at a time. Good luck.

I'd love some vigilante justice... but then I'd be on the news, and I don't need that.

When I said "house", I really meant driveway. I have two cars - a driver and the truck. I had my set of truck keys in the cup holder of my driver. Someone came in and stole a golf ball, a flash light, and the keys.

I've checked with two dealers... one said they can clear keys, one said they can not. The key will physically unlock the door and fit/turn the ignition, but I'm hoping that it wont start. I guess the best way is to have three keys and trial/error at the dealer. That, or make sure my insurance is paid up.
