GF lost my keys on accident and my parents have the other key in dallas, 200 miles away. So I went to the dealer and they cut me a new key for $10 but their remotes are $56, so I'm going to buy one off ebay for about $10 and I need to know how to program it. Tried the search feature but it wasn't really popping out any quick answers. Aren't they pretty generic, like anything form 99-06 should work?

Stand close to the truck and press and hold the lock and unlock buttons for 15 seconds. If you hear the locks moving, you got it.

Is that true? Not like I'm going to be messing with other GM trucks but I'm just worried that if it's that easy, then someone can fuck with mine.:ninja:

I found this

Once the remote control door lock receiver enters the
programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter
erases all previous transmitter programming information, requiring the
programming of all transmitters.


Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If
more than 1 receiver is being programmed at the same time, it is
possible that the same transmitter could be programmed to more than 1
remote control door lock receiver.


Perform the following steps in order to program the transmitter:
· Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
· Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block
diagram.
· Close all of the doors.
· Close the liftgate.
· Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.
· Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1
second. Open and close any vehicle door. A chime will be heard when the
system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.


Important
After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful
synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a
second chime that will confirm successful programming.


· Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously
for 14 seconds.
· Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be
programmed.
· Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
· Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse
Block diagram.


Important: Be careful and be sure which fuse you pull.

I bought my '01 used. It had power door locks, but no remote. So I checked the glovebox and the codes showed keyless entry. I ordered FOB on ebay. Went out to the truck, synced it, and it worked. Got to thinking, "That was too easy." Someone, with the correct type of remote, could walk up to your vehicle, with you in it, and be able to get themselves easy entry. :nono: Fuckin' GM. BUY ALARMS:read:

: OFF, ON, OFF. Release power unlock button on the door panel. The locks will cycle once.
:
: 2.Hold down the keyless entry transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for 15 seconds. The locks will again
: cycle once.
