HelloCustomer if the alarm is an aftermarket alarm, it can be bypassed. Let me know if this is the case and we will proceed.

I feel your system must be an aftermarket system. Does your remote have any indications that it is other then a GM remote. If it's factory, it's not so easy to override, but if it's aftermarket, we can.
