Default Two way remote installed with pictures!!

I can't say enough about the new two-way remote. Works great and it really has some nice range to it. The size is just a bit thicker then the original remote but close to the same size as the original in diameter. The unit available for my Tahoe controls the following:

1. Lock and unlock doors and status
2. Opens rear glass
3. Auto start and show remaining time left before shut off
4. Fuel level
5. Tire Pressure
6. Mileage on vehicle
7. Radio control (this works for if you have the Tahoe running you can use the remote to control the stations listed in your favorites)
Note: Works well with your memory package.

Very Cool.

I spoke with the Tech when it was installed and also looked at the kit in the parts department before the install. The only thing added into the Tahoe is a small module and antenna. The module is about 3" square and it replaces the existing one located in the back cargo area of the Tahoe under the rear glass on the driver side. I also had the factory NAV unit installed while I was there. I've posted a picture of it as well. I have spent most of the weekend in the garage playing..LOL

Did you have remote start before you installed the 2-way remote?

Yes.

However, if your Tahoe doesnot have Remote start you can have factory remote start installed through your local dealer, it's just not part of the 2 way remote package.

You mentioned that the new remote opens the rear glass - are you saying it doesn't open the rear liftgate?

The price will vary depending on what model and options you have. It should run you around $200.00 to $240.00 installed GM shows about 1.4 hours for install time. I was getting the DVD Nav unit put in as well so I just left it with them for the day. They had it ready around 2:00pm. I can buy wholesale so I saved a few bucks on the deal. :thumbsup:

Nope, not saying that at all. It depends on what options your current remote does and options your Vehicle currently has. I listed above the remote options my Tahoe has.

The new two-way remote will do all of the current features that your remote that comes with your Tahoe does but gives you that additional feedback of status and the other items I listed as in Tire pressure, mileage, change music stations, and fuel status. If you’re interested in getting one I would contact your local dealer and he should be able to confirm features base off your vin on your Tahoe, That is what I did.:thumbsup:

Is the unit plug and play if you have factory remote start, or do they have to do all the tech2 garbage and program everything?

Anyone have a instructions, install guide, or manual on the 2way remote system?

NO it is not plug and play, it requires programming to your system. I have factory remote start on my Tahoe but the system still required some programming.( or so I was told by the dealer.) To me it was worth the 80.00 for the install because it is now covered under my factory warranty.

I do have the manual for the two-way remote but not the install guide.
