KABA RAC4 programming troubles : Locksmith

Hey all, I recently started as a contracted locksmith (with 3 years experience in locksmithing) for a hotel that has a Dorma-kaba swipe card system with 760 series locks on all of the guest doors. The common area however for the pool uses two mag stripe readers and an RAC4 access controller. They recently installed Kaba’s update onto all of the guest doors with the “claw” type cable but couldn’t figure out the common area doors. So for the last three days guest cards have not worked on the pool door, but GMA and emergency keys still do. I’ve tried to update the RAC4 using the FDU and DB9 cable but it won’t succesfully link for resetting the Common area settings. Any ideas?

2001 Dodge Dakota BCM / CTM Module remote programming : Locksmith

My truck was setting off the alarm randomly when I’d go to unlock it with the remote or manually about every other time. So after researching it on various forums, people seemed to recommend swapping out the BCM or as Chrysler calls it the CTM. I bought a used one online. Some people didn’t need to do any programming for their key fobs, others did have to program. Right when I swapped out the module, the key fobs no longer worked. The car starts, the key does not have a transponder in it (is not chipped).

After researching, people said that I need to have my remotes programmed to the new (used) BCM module. I had an auto lock smith try this, but his equipment couldn’t communicate. He said try the Chrysler dealer. I called them, they said its iffy if they can program a used module, and new modules are out of production. I talked to other auto lock smiths, I’m getting mixed answers, no one seems to know exactly what they are talking about. Chrysler dealer wanted $164 and said they need to reflash my module with my VIN or something. And good chance it won’t work.

Can someone speak with confidence as to what I need to have done, and what kinds of tools are needed?

Edit: Here is the main thing I’ve been following in my quest to resolve this issue: https://dodgeforum.com/forum/1st-gen-durango/244491-01-durango-alarm-keeps-going-off-2.html#post3277453

2012 NV2500 HD fob programming problem : Locksmith

I have searched every way I know to and have not seen anything like this problem or a solution to it.  If I am doing something wrong I don’t know what it is.  I have a total of 4 fobs.  2 old and 2 new.  Per the instructions, I enter the van, shut the door, press the lock button, insert key in switch at least 6 times until the emergency flashers blink twice, turn the key to ACC position, press the lock button on the remote.  To program each additional remote I press the unlock then the lock button on the door then the lock button on the remote, lights flash two times.  When completed turn key off, unlock door, exit vehicle…. when I press the lock button the horn blows off and on until I get in the van, start engine, and turn off the engine then remove the key.  What is going on?  Why is the van responding this way to the procedure?  Two of the remotes worked before the batteries died in them.

Programming Newer Fobs to Older Models : Locksmith

I work at a dealership, and a customer mentioned how much he loved the new fobs and wished he had one for his older truck.

Would it be possible to program a 2014-2018 Sierra/Silverado fob to a 2007-2013 Sierra/Silverado? Same functions (Remote Start, (un)lock, alarm).

If this is possible, is this exclusive to this situation? Is this something that can be done with any other Makes/Models?
