    4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.

    Thanks Steve. I just ordered a new remote for my Dad's 05, so I will use this when it comes in.

    I tried this on My 2002 Silverado and it worked without any problems, saved me the trip and time and$money$ of going to the dealership and have them charge me $85+/- for 90 seconds of work. I am very glad I found this forum.

    Thanks,

    I know this is for NBS Suburbans, but I just bought a '97 K1500 LT, and I figure that it had the remote door locks from the factory. The previous owner bought it in '02 and had had aftermarket remote door locks installed. The owner's manual shows the factory remotes also unlocked the hatch.

    So what I am wondering is what are the odds that this vehicle didn't actually come with the remote power door locks. And if it did, but somebody already installed the aftermarket variety, what if I buy the actual remotes and program them. Would the new ones override the aftermarket ones? The factory ones are also supposed to sound the horn (finder) and turn on the interior lights.

    This is really good info, and I appreciate it. One related question. I have an 04 Suburban Z71. Lost my key and fob. With this version of vehicle, the remotes are numbered 1 and 2, which aligns with the vehicle presets for the seats, outside mirrors, pedals, and audio selections. How do you make sure that when you reprogram your old remote and your new remote that you retain this function? I would assume that you do it in the order that they are supposed to be in, but before I go and torch my wife's remote (not a good thing ), I was hoping to find out for sure. Thanks.


    EDIT: I found some instructions on eBay (yah, of all places) that states that the order you do them in is the order they go in for the presets. Hope this helps someone else!

    Glad that everyone is able to get these programmed on their own and save a bunch of money! Many GM models are super-easy (and sort of fun) to do on your own.
