    Default Factory Remote Start AP8

    Any one know if or of a way to trip the factory remote start in a 09 gmc sierra with out spending $200 for 2 key fobs plus labor$$

    My truck has the ap8 code and i have a key fob w/ remote start button programed to my truck and it will flash the parking lights when used but truck will not start... The computer needs to be tripped but gm wants me to buy a $200 key fob kit for two key fobs you can get for $15 each

    AFAIK, you should only need a key fob, and then have it programmed to your truck (I programmed a spare for my truck in under 5 mins by following the steps in the owner's manual).

    Perhaps the fob you are using is not compatitable with your truck.

    Good info Mike, and OP, read post #24, apparently there is a "Unlock Authorization Security Code, That's included In The Starter Kit.....that the Dealer needs when they call G.M.....".I did not know about this code.
