When I bought the car it only came with the one key too so I have no back up.
I have read that if it works the locks via the key in the driver lock that it is not a gm5 module problem, anyone have experience with this or have resolved an issue like it? I can't be the only one here who's experienced this.
Might be a stupid question, but did you program it to your car (to the GM!?), if not it will never work!

Woking in the lock (at the door) is purely mechanical, and has NOTHING to do with the remote OR the GM! So your problem is either the guts of the remote or the GM. We have both used, in stock at all times, guaranteed to work!
