OEM remote distance

0 votes
2009 Chevy Avalanche LS 5.8 gas, EVO RS EVO-GM4 installed. I'm using the OEM remote fob. Truck starts just fine if I am within 3' of it. It does not start when I am standing in my house at my masterbath window 15' from the truck. Do I need to add an extended range antennae? If yes, which one.

We do not change the range of the OEM remote. If it only functions that close then yes, I would either try changing the batteries in your OEM fob or purchasing and installing* an rf kit which can be seen here: http://fortin.ca/en/technology/rf_kits.html
