The Chevy engine may not start if the key fob remote is not recognized. A dead key fob battery often causes the problem. You may not even be able to unlock the car with the keyfob.
When you start the car on the DIC, you typically get a warning message stating NO REMOTE DETECTED or NO REMOTE KEY WAS DETECTED. Use this method to start your Chevy if the remote batteries are dead manually.
Remove the key from the key fob.
Insert the key in the driver’s door handle to remove the cap.
Pry out the cover to expose the keyhole.
Open the driver’s door.
Locate the transmitter pocket, which is usually on the center console or the glove box.
Insert your key into the transmitter pocket. On the Chevrolet Volt, you need to open the storage compartment on the center console. Removing the rubber mat will expose the hole where you can insert the metal key.
Press the START/STOP button to start your Chevrolet.
