    I reveiced a new remote in the mail today. I received the following instructions and they bring me into the programming mode, but will not complete step 10 which is programming the remote. I have also changed the battery just in case and it still doesn't seem to work. Does anyone have any suggestion:

    1. Close all vehicle doors.

    2. Insert the key into the ignition.

    3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver’s door panel-continue to hold down until instructed
    to release in step 9.

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

    5. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).

    6. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

    7. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

    8. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

    9. Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock the doors automatically.

    10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until the door locks and unlocks.
    This step may take up to 30 seconds.

    11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

    12. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode

    I did that and it worked for me. The only thing I can think is that you got the wrong transmitter. Who did you buy from?

    What does it say on that back of your new transmitters? Does it work for your old ones, or do you still have them?

    I (will have tomorrow) 2005 with one remote with one button missing. Can you suggest where to buy two new remotes?

    Well, Ebay is usually the first choice. If your in Canada, I saw them at Canadian Tire. If your in the US, I suspect most auto parts stores have them.

    But, first question..........is the one you have a GM remote and not a remote for an after market package?

    Yes, It made it very easy. Entered the Make, Model, Year etc... It was about $25 for two remotes. The programming directions given were the same as posted here.
