    Keyless Fob Needs New Battery Every Few Weeks

    Success! Just Needed Better CR2032 Battery I just got the car back from the dealer. Last Friday didn't work out because of a black ice alert but got it in to the dealer this morning. While they were changing the oil, the service representative took on the keyless keys himself. When the car...

    Keyless Fob Needs New Battery Every Few Weeks

    The second fob didn't work at all; changed the battery. Old battery was at 0.22 Volts, i.e. essentially dead, probably original from 2011. Fob with new battery didn't work either. I checked the owner's manual and found that I could program the second fob if the first one worked in the center...

    Keyless Fob Needs New Battery Every Few Weeks

    I've only used one of the fobs. I'll try using the other one.

    Keyless Fob Needs New Battery Every Few Weeks

    I've had my 2011 CTS-V for over three years now and the keyless feature is great. If I get paranoid about hackers, I have an RF shield that I can use, and I do keep that handy for traveling.

    Current Selection of A/S Tires for CTS-V V2

    New tires doing great I put them on the day of the first hard freeze, and as with previous Michelins they are great in the snow and ice, as good as you can get without studded tires or aggressive cold-weather tires that don't do much for a CTS-V. Because of the weather and lack of time for...

    Current Selection of A/S Tires for CTS-V V2

    Tire History My experience in recent years is that ultra-high-performance all-season tires approach the performance of ultra-high-performance summer tires for some brands, like Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, and probably others. I can't use summer tires because I don't have room for another...

    Find Old 1966 Corvette? I bought a 1966 Corvette new in Texas and sold it after 18 months at 23,500 miles. It was last seen being driven by a medical doctor to Chicago in the fall of 1967. I have the 13-digit VIN but don't want to post it publicly. It was a Nassau blue (the bright, saturated...

    Current Selection of A/S Tires for CTS-V V2

    I'm about ready for tires. My current tires are Goodyear F1 Asymmetrical A/S and they have been good tires for the street. On a good surface they will hook up fine when needed, feel and handling are excellent (max peak acceleration just over 1 g both left and right; happens just as traction...

    I've had my 2011 CTS-V sedan (Recaros, sunroof, A6, Thunder Gray) for a few years now and it's my daily driver. I'm about ready for tires and thought that I would come here, and I'll browse the main forum for current tire advice. This car has turned out to be just about the most reliable car...
