This is a good place to throw my question out I guess, my fob for my 05 psd only works about 30 feet away, is that normal or could my battery be weak??

Mine has always worked from a distance ,we were on the 10th floor of a motel at Myrtle beach once and I didn't remember locking the truck so I tried it from that far up through a window and it worked,the wife says no way that worked and I says look for the flashing lights.

Mine works from at least 75ft. My dads tahoe started only working right up at the vehicle. We got a new FOB and still no change, so I'm thinking the problem is in the vehicle itself.

subscribed for the distance issue. Mine works maybe 25 feet away so it's pretty annoying. Wondering about replacement fobs or receiver issues.

I did notice with mine I get better distance from the side of the truck then head on for some reason,sometimes when I walk up to the truck from the front I have to be about 25 feet away before it unlocks,but from the side all the way across the parking lot is the norm.
