Have you checked the range of your FOBs when the system IS working? Do you have an asterisk on the back of your FOBs? What model year do you have?
It sounds as if the receiver is going bad since you're having problems with the FOB and the TPS system. Hopefully the TSB will cover you even though your warranty has expired. Let us know when you find out.

Hey.I purchased an 07 Impala LT last April (demo with 5000 miles). I had the problem with the key fob issue after two months having the car. Tire pressure monitor kept reading service and I had no range on my key fob. Then in October when I went back for standard service, my service manager told me that he had to replace both key fobs, my antenna and some module. I haven't had any problems since then. If your car is still under warranty, I would take it back in and get it looked at. Hope that this helps.
#160 of 167 My range is horrible

I just bought my 2006 Chevy Impala LT this past weekend with 30,000 miles on it. Overall i love the car so far, except for the fact that the range on the remote keyless entry is horrendous! I've tested it in several different situations, and the longest range I can reach is about 50 feet - and that's if I'm lucky.
I think I may need to get the receiver replaced as so many have mentioned here. I better do it before the warranty runs out at 36k.
So when I go in, I should probably mention TSB #3764, correct?
#161 of 167 Replacement of receiver, do at home?
Mar 18, 2009 (7:08 pm)
Has anyone attempted to replace the receiver on their own? I have a copy of the TSB and could buy the antenna and receiver for around $100. The TSB I have gives directions on how to do it and they don't look to hard. Just wondering if anyone has tried it themselves and was wondering how hard it might be. I'm out of warranty and don't want to pay $730 for the dealership to do it.

I think you need a TechII to program the system after you're done replacing parts. If you have one of those, you're in like Flynn.
If you're not far out of warranty, you might appeal to your favorite dealer for a little Goodwill. They may be able to get GM to foot the bill, or part of the bill. Remember, you get more flies with honey than with vinegar. They don't owe you anything. You are asking for a favor.

Is it possible to purchase the reciever and replace it yourself?
#165 of 167 wheres the recevier for the key fob????
Aug 12, 2010 (6:39 am)
wheres the recevier for the key fob????my impala has 80k on it. i bought it used almost 2 years ago. i got a key fob on ebay, read online to see how to program it to my imapala, i've done eveything trying the key on and off holding lock button on door and then the lock and unlock... but i can't get nothing. so i figured it was the key fob. took it in had it tested and it works fine. so then the guy tells me that they would have to look at it and all that... i asked how much it would be, and he said "well if it's just a wire that needs pluged in, and with time and labor and that it would be 80.00 unless it's rolled over and die then it would be much more then that"... well i'm sorry i'm NOT going to pay 80 for someone to plug in a wire... that's crazy!!! isn't it? or was he for real ( i'm a women so part of me thinks he thought i would have sucker written across my forhead ) anyways... so i figured maybe if i could find it my self, the RECEIVER Module then i could plug in a wire... i have a 2005 chevy impala.
i also have some other issues:
1. pinging noise after i turn off my car
2.while i'm driving my ca feels like its choking, or like its gonna stall... then sometimes it's totally fine. and sometimes it does it at a stop light while the car is sitting there. normally when starts happening then i go and get a fuel treatment and fill up with prem. gas... and it does fine for a while like a couple to a few months and then i have to do it again ... and sometimes after the treatment it will do it but it's not as hard of a choke and it's very less noticeable and far and few between.
are either of these major concerns????....should i do anything more?... or what????? please help!!!!!!

Just bought a GM Certified 2006 Impala and noticed the remote start and auto door unlocks only work from about 5 -10 feet away...noticed a lot of people talking about the receivers and antennas being replaced...I was wondering if this is covered under the 12 month GM certified warranty...I sure hope so...If this is a known issue why wouldn't they have fixed it at the dealer?Geeesh....
