A few days ago someone had a post about programming remotes for an 98
Suburban I think. I have an 04 2500HD and my significant other lost a
remote already. My truck has the memory seats, mirrors, radio, etc...
so the remotes are numbered. I called the dealer and they want $20 for
the remote (not too insane) but want $65 (one hour of labor) to
Does anyone know if there is a fast easy way to program the remote for
this truck or do I really have to eat $65 and take it to the dealer?
Get in the truck (make sure you have both remotes with you) and close
Put the key in the ignition, hold down the power unlock switch on the
door panel and cycle the ignition on then off 2 times.
Release the lock switch and the power locks should cycle to confirm
you are in programming mode
Hold down the Lock and Unlock buttons on the remote you want
programmed for Remote 1, after about 15 seconds the locks should cycle
to confirm the programming.
Repeat step 4 (sorry, I didn't number them, can you count?) for each
transmitter to be programmed, then label them as 1, 2, 3 and 4, in the
order they were programmed.
Turn the key to the RUN position to exit programming.
Your directions worked great! Thanks a ton! When I asked the dealer
this they told me it took 1 hour and I would have to bring it in to
them. This saved me $65! Thanks again.
