    Hello all,

    This is my first post. I recently bought a 2013 Silverado LTZ 1500 Crew Cab in White Diamond, and I love it. I do however have a question.

    It appears that GM has removed the ability for the end user to add remotes to the system via the DIC. On my 2008 Silverado, I was able to add remotes through the DIC very easily.

    Is there a work around? The dealer wants $70 just to program a single remote.

    Also it looks like for 2013 the end user can still add keys if they wish via starting the vehicle with a valid key, turning the key off, and inserting a new key and turning to the on position.

    Oh well, I guess it will remain a mystery.

    The owners manual states to take it to an authorized dealer, I wonder if the dealer has to hook a computer up to it or if there is a key sequence to press.

    I guess that you could try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBtdQzL96bw I don't think that it will work because they are doing it on an older model in the video. I will try to make some calls later today and see what I can find out. But, being election day I think that the employees at the GM tech center have the day off.
    I know that the 11-12 yukons rewuired a scan tool to program a remote. This can be performed by any locksmith that has a scantool. Many locksmiths have small portable scan tools and will be it cheap or even free at times.I would call around.
