Look in the instructions:
Or call the 1-800 number in the instruction manual. There is a procedure to

Stand next to the truck, after replacing the battery. Hold the lock
and unlock buttons on the fob. You should get some indication from
the truck that the remote has been re-synchronized with the truck.
