Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


You can try this manual procedure to see if the remote will program to the vehicle.If this doesn't work then a GM scan tool will be needed to program the remotes to your vehicle.

Press and hold the TRUNK button on the remote and within 1 second press and hold the lock button on the remote and hold both buttons down on the remote for about 7 seconds then release the buttons.

If this worked after you release the buttons the remote should function properly from there.If not then most likely it has to be programmed using a dealers scan tool.

Let me know if you need anything else,click accept if you feel satisfied with your answer as this is how I get credited for my time,Thanks Pete!
