      Keyless Entry (stock on 2004 Aveo LS?) - does the hatch release remotely too?

      Hello,
      I've looked around for a solution to this with no luck.
      I recently bought a 2004 Aveo LS hatchback. its got power locks and keyless entry which is fantastic. I'm beginning to think that the keyless entry was not stock, but i want to make sure.

      Is the keyless entry supposed to unlock and lock the rear Hatch?

      i dont want to tear the thing apart it if i dont have to.

      The FOBs i have for the car only have 2 buttons (lock and unlock) instead of what most people seem to have (three buttons). My fobs have chevy symbols on them and function for the 4 doors, just not the hatch. i can open the hatch with the key just fine.

      thanks for any help

      Remote locking/unlocking was a feature on the '04 LS:

      Specifications: 2004 Chevrolet Aveo - Chevrolet Aveo forum and owners club - AveoForum.com

      I'm honestly not sure if it should also work on the hatch lock though. Someone else will have to chime in.

      I looked at how easy it was to disassemble the hatch area(a few annoying plastic plugs and 2 screws) opened it up found the electronics to the drivers side.(removed the assembly with an 8mm socket, opened it up to find a tiny dc motor and gear assembly) Turns out the Motor has dead spots where it doesn't turn when voltage is applied, so I disconnected it to avoid accidental unlocks in case it hits a live spot. Ill be looking for a replacement tonight. I'll let you know what I find. I might even post some pictures.

      Thanks for the update, and please get some pics when you're in there with the replacement part.

      These things rarely happen to just 1 person -- it'll be useful for the next person who searches for this topic.
