Onstar remote unlock

OnStar is a connected car service offered by General Motors (GM) that provides a range of features, including remote vehicle services like remote unlock. With OnStar, you can remotely unlock your car if you've locked your keys inside or if you need to grant access to someone else who is not physically present with the vehicle.

Here's how to use OnStar remote unlock to unlock your car:

  1. Contact OnStar: You can reach OnStar through several methods, including pressing the blue OnStar button located in your vehicle, using the OnStar RemoteLink app (if available), or calling the OnStar customer service hotline. The blue OnStar button is typically located on the rearview mirror or the overhead console in your vehicle.
  2. Request Remote Unlock: Once you're connected to an OnStar advisor or using the app, explain that you need to unlock your vehicle remotely. Provide them with your OnStar account information and the necessary security details to confirm your identity.
  3. Authorization: The OnStar advisor will verify your identity and check if you have the necessary permissions to unlock the vehicle. They may ask you security questions or use other methods to confirm your ownership of the vehicle.
  4. Remote Unlock: After confirming your identity and authorization, the OnStar advisor will send a signal to your vehicle's OnStar module, which will unlock the car's doors.
  5. Confirmation: You'll receive confirmation that the doors are unlocked, either from the OnStar advisor or through the app if you're using it.
  6. Access Your Vehicle: Once your vehicle is unlocked, you can retrieve your keys or allow someone else to access the vehicle.

It's important to note that OnStar services, including remote unlock, may require an active OnStar subscription, and the availability of these features can vary depending on your vehicle's make and model. Additionally, the specific steps and features offered by OnStar may have evolved or changed since my last knowledge update in September 2021. Therefore, I recommend consulting the latest information provided by OnStar or your vehicle's manufacturer for the most up-to-date details on using OnStar remote unlock services.
