Hi and thank you for the question. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. It sounds like the remote is either faulty or the remote battery is failing. I'll look up a bypass for you.

Expert:  TODD RUZICKA replied 9 months ago.

If you open your center console, there is a remote slot. This will bypass the remote in the event of a dead battery in the remote. Insert the remote into this slot (rear of the center console compartment / on the bottom). This will enable the starting sequence.

You will need to bring the vehicle and ALL remotes to a GM dealer. They can test the remotes and / or the remote batteries. They can also replace the batteries for you if needed.
