If I can figure out how, I will place a photo tomorrow. The antenna mounts on top of the wheel well area behind the 2nd seat on the passenger side. Not very esthetic, but now the enhanced remote works great. I was also getting bad "wheel sensor" errors because they use the same antenna to transmit the signals from the wheel sensors. That too, is now corrected. Other than a dead battery 2 wks ago I've had no other problems...Nov 1,'09, 26+k miles.

Hi All,
My local dealer reworked the Advanced Remote antenna installation (was originally done by another dealer) and our remote range has improved dramatically. We had to stand literally right next to the vehicle to unlock the doors with the standard fob, the advanced fob allowed us to stand about 10' feet away. Now the standard fob works from across the street. In fact I can sit with the advanced fob in the den , which is on the other end of the house from the garage, and check the tire pressures and fuel levels - that is going through several walls. So we are pleased. The antenna was left down inside the wheel well trim instead of on top - see attachment pic.
Also read that some other owners experienced TPMS errors, which we did also on our recent trip, so will be watching for improvement there also.

I just bought a used 2008 Enclave that is in excellent shape, but am having the same issues with the OEM fob. The remote lock\unlock only works within 20 feet, and the remote start only works if I'm standing right next to the vehicle. I've tried 2 brand new batteries in the fob, and cleaned the contacts with 99% isopropyl alcohol, but still the same problem every time. Any idea what could be causing such an abbreviated range? (This is a USA region Enclave, so that shouldn't be the issue)
