On early models of the 2007 Avalanche, there is a programing problem on the Remote keyless Entry (RKE) system. This can cause a battery drain and result in a dead battery. This happened to me less than a month after I got my first Avalanche, but the dealer said he found nothing wrong. In february TSB # 1906368 addressed this problem.

It would be for 2007 models. 

If this "recall" applies to your vehicle, it will show up at www.mygmlink.com when you register and provide your VIN.

I've been having trouble with my key fobs, but I don't think it's this same issue.

With mine, they don't work until after I put my key in the door to unlock it, or as soon as I shut the vehicle off.
In other words, after the vehicle sits for a while, the fobs don't work.

This happened once before, but then resolved itself. 
I've tried reprogramming the key fobs, but that didn't help.

I had the exact isuue with mine.  I took it to the dealer & they "flashed" the remote and took care of the TSB and now works as it should.  Thumbs up!
