Hello and welcome.

The document ID number is XXXXX a GM number.


Yes, there is a GM service bulletin for your problem.

The repair for this is the replace the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver, the antenna for the receiver, and both remotes.


After replacement, the door lock receiver will need to be programmed, remotes programmed, and tire pressure system (if applicable) programmed.


This repair works everytime.
