The truck will need to go to the GM dealer so they can reprogram the passenger door module (the window switch assembly is the door module and also controls the remote function actuation). Here is the applicable bulletin from GM.

Correction

Important: For clarification purposes, the following information is provided. The components involved in this bulletin are known by various names. The Service Information Document ID #849813 refers to the component as the Door Lock and Side Window Switch. General Motors Service Parts refers to the components as SWITCH DR LK & SI WDO. Within this component is a micro processor that is referred to as the Passenger Door Module (PDM). Techline equipment refers to the component as the PDM Passenger Door Module. This bulletin addresses issues with the software of the microprocessor in the Passenger Door Module (PDM).

Perform the following procedure step by step (do not skip a step) to determine the proper course of action.

Important: Verify the software version in your Tech 2. If the software is not 23.001 or newer, your Tech 2 software needs to be updated.

    If the vehicles month of production is 02/03 or newer, this bulletin does not apply. Refer to published Service Information for the symptom experienced by the customer.
  2. Use the Tech 2 to determine the PDM operational software release number.

so how much will it cost and how much time will it take
Expert:  Dan replied 8 years ago.
They shouldn't charge more than 1 hour of labor and the highest labor rate I have seen is $100/hour. So no more than 1 hour time and $100.
