passive entry problems

today is day 3 that i've had my summit and for the most part really like it, full review coming at 500 mile mark. the passive entry is really nice, however today, i used the passive entry to open the liftgate, which worked, but when i tried to use it to lock it back up, nothing. i tried both front doors and nothing. i then started the vehicle up, shut it off and tried the passive locking or unlocking and nothing. any suggestion?

Re: passive entry problems

I wasn't aware of any "passive" locking.

Re: passive entry problems

Make sure your fingers are not touching the handed when you press the button.

Re: passive entry problems

Thinking about it, I believe that feature can be turned off in the EVIC. Some of us have had settings change on their own. Make sure you have yours enabled.

I had as issue when I first got mine where the passive entry was not working and I found that if I had my key and iphone close together like in the same pocket it didn't work. I have kept them apart since and have not had another problem.

I have my key fob hanging on my belt and my phone is in my work car, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Re: passive entry problems

One thing I learned in the last 3 months; just because it doesn't work today, doesn't mean it won't work tomorrow. So, don't tear anything apart for a day or two.

Will it unlock using the passice entry and just not lock or do you have to use the buttons on fob for everything
